Klarna was founded in 2005 in Stockholm, Sweden with the aim of making it easier for people to shop online. In the last 18 years, technology has evolved, excited and transformed the world around us, yet our mission remains as relevant as ever, to make paying as simple, safe and above all, smoooth as possible.

Klarna is the leading global payments and shopping service, providing smarter and more flexible shopping and purchase experiences to 150 million active consumers across more than 500,000 merchants in 45 countries. Klarna offers direct payments, pay after delivery options and instalment plans in a smooth one-click purchase experience that lets consumers pay when and how they prefer to.

When the company acquired SOFORT in 2014 the Klarna Group was formed. Klarna is backed by investors such as Sequoia Capital, Silver Lake, Bestseller Group, Dragoneer, Permira, Visa, Ant Group and Atomico.

Summary

Enabling your customers to pay via Klarna requires you to integrate the Klarna payment method into your checkout process. In order to get an overview of the relationship and interaction on your checkout please see the following diagram. (This diagram is adopted from the official Klarna documentation: Klarna Docs - Offering Klarna payment methods to your customers)

Establishing Klarna Checkout is a 3 step process.

1
Create a New Session

The first step is to setup a new checkout session by sending a genericpayment-request to our server API as listed below. This step is a pre-condition for loading the Klarna widget.

Please make sure to send the customer data within this request as it is needed to initiate a new session. A session will remain valid for 48 hours after the last update.

→ Genericpayment start_session

Optional - Update the Session

If the customer leaves the checkout page and returns at a later point in time, you can update the created session and change for example the address data.

→ Genericpayment update_session

2
Handle Token

Part of the response is a client token. This token needs to be passed to the Klarna Widget. This Widget sends the client token together with the selected payment method (e.g. "Klarna Pay Later") to Klarna to get a authorization token.

→ Widget

3
Finalize the Checkout ((Pre-)Authorization)

In the last step, you need to send the authorization token received by Klarna widget as part of the (pre-)authorization request to our server api.

→ Preauthorization/Authorization

The response contains a redirect-URL. You need to redirect the customer to this url, so that Klarna is able to securely handle data and optimize purchase flow. The customer doesn't need to take any action and will not notice this step in the background.

Voucher Handling


If you're using vouchers in your checkout, and want to partial refund items, you do have 2 options to do this:

  • send a debit-request with the items using the original amount without any discounts and send a additional item as voucher, with an amount that sums up all discounts
    • example cart with auth
      • item 1; red car;  20 €
      • item 2; green truck; 30 €
      • item 3; voucher -10€ (-5€ discount on both items)
    • example cart with debit/refund
      • item 1; red car;  20 €
      • item 2; voucher -5€  (15€ for one item will be returned)
  • send a debit-request with the items using an reduced amount, so that the whole discount is broken down on every item.
    • example cart with auth
      • item 1; red car;  20 €
      • item 2; green truck; 30 €
