European neobank Viva Wallet has partnered Klarna to expand the line-up of payment options for merchants across the continent. With 150 million global active users and 2 million transactions per day, Klarna is the latest addition to Viva Wallet’s online and in-store innovative payment platforms.
Klarna’s payments offering (such as Pay in 3 Days, Pay in 30 Days, Pay Now, or opt for Financing to pay over 3-36 months) is now added to the collection of 30+ payment options delivered by Viva Wallet. These include major international as well as local payment schemes to accommodate all transactions
“Pay with Klarna” will also be available to those interacting with the online and brick-and-mortar touchpoints, supported by Viva Wallet POS app. The application turns any Android mobile into a card terminal, and Smart Checkout payment gateway for e-shops.

“Together, we are improving the shopping experience to fit the needs of the modern consumer, whilst making the integration process as accessible and simple as possible for the merchants that wish to capitalise on these global payments trend.”
