Klarna and Global-e expand global partnership to Canada
Klarna, a leading global retail bank, payments, and shopping service, announced today its expanded partnership with leading cross-border e-commerce provider Global-e (Nasdaq: GLBE). Through this partnership, merchants selling to Canada via Global-e’s cross-border e-commerce platform, including notable brands such as Reformation, SKIMS, Fenty Beauty, Rimowa, Versace, Marc Jacobs, and Marks & Spencer, can now offer consumers Klarna’s flexible payment options.
“Consumers worldwide are demanding smarter ways to pay, and this sentiment also extends to Canada, where, according to our research, at least half of shoppers between the ages of 25 and 56 look for flexible payment options at checkout,” said Kristina Elkhazin, Head of Canada, Klarna. “By expanding Klarna’s successful partnership with Global-e to Canada, we look forward to providing Canadian consumers with greater choice and flexibility at checkout, while in turn, driving growth on behalf of our shared retail partners through an enhanced online shopping experience and access to our network of more than 147 million shoppers worldwide.”
Klarna’s suite of alternative payment solutions, including its popular interest-free “Pay in 4” service, is now available to retailers selling in Canada via Global-e’s cross-border e-commerce platform. Global-e’s international merchant network can now seamlessly offer Klarna across 15 core markets including Canada, the United States, France, Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Belgium, and Austria, to further enhance their offering of a localized online shopping experience.
“We are thrilled to expand our already successful partnership with Klarna to enable merchants to provide streamlined and flexible payment options to Canadian consumers,” said Shahar Tamari, Co-founder, and COO at Global-e. “Offering such flexibility to shoppers has proven to have a substantially positive impact on a retailer’s average order value and customer return rate. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Klarna to empower merchants in providing localized shopping solutions, including payments, to consumers in key markets across the globe.”
Global-e’s end-to-end, localized cross-border e-commerce platform allows merchants to tailor the online shopping experience to the preferences and behaviours of shoppers in different markets to accelerate online sales and conversions.
