By Joy Dumasia
Klarna, the global retail bank, payments and shopping service, has announced a partnership with luxury retailer Harrods, offering customers more flexible and convenient payment options throughout Harrods Knightsbridge, H beauty and Harrods.com.
Harrods UK in-store shoppers will be able to use Klarna’s popular Pay in 3 payment options for beauty purchases in Harrods iconic Beauty Hall and across H beauty stores in Essex (Lakeside) and Milton Keynes (centre:mk). Other Harrods departments are set to roll out Klarna’s payment options in the coming months. Customers shopping the store via Harrods.com in the UK will also be able to benefit from splitting their payments via Pay in 3, whilst US customers can use Pay in 4 when purchasing goods online. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, online customers will use Klarna’s Pay later feature when shopping.
Luke Griffiths, Chief Commercial Officer at Klarna, commented: “Harrods is one of the most recognisable brands across the globe with a footprint and heritage that is unrivalled within the luxury retail space. We are excited to bring our payment products to Harrods customers across Europe and the US, offering them the option to buy goods how and when they want.”
Alex Unitt, Partnerships Director at Harrods, said: “Harrods is known for providing a first-class shopping experience, and this latest partnership with Klarna enables us to give our Harrods customers maximum flexibility and convenient payment options. We’re excited to bring Klarna to our iconic beauty halls in Knightsbridge, as well as H beauty, our beauty emporiums in Essex and Milton Keynes, and across Harrods.com. Klarna’s market-leading payments products will enable us to continue supporting existing customers’ payment needs, as well as enabling a greater breadth of customers to access Harrods’ unrivalled selection of international brands and products.”
