Klarna was founded in Stockholm in 2005 with the idea of simplifying buying. We do this by letting the consumer receive the goods first and pay afterwards, while we assume the credit and fraud risks for the merchants. Today, Klarna is one of Europe’s fastest growing companies.
In 2014 we joined forces with SOFORT and formed Klarna Group, the leading European alternative payment provider. Klarna Group has more than 1 400 employees and is active on 18 markets. We serve 45 million consumers and work with 65 000 merchants. Our goal is to become the world’s favorite way to buy.
