Digital River, Klarna Partner for International Payments
Oct. 16, 2014
Digital River recently announced it has partnered with Swedish online payment provider Klarna on several initiatives that will enhance local payment options for its European merchants. Online and mobile merchants in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands that use Digital River as their e-commerce platform now can offer consumers the ability to pay with Klarna Invoice, which enables them to shop online and pay by invoice or in installments later. Additionally, Klarna has agreed to process its merchants’ credit-card and online bank transfer payments through the Minneapolis-based company’s international gateway.
“This new partnership presents multiple mutually beneficial opportunities,” said Souheil Badran, Digital River World Payments’ senior vice president and general manager. “By adding Klarna to our payments portfolio – which today supports over 190 international and local payment options – we can offer our clients even more alternatives designed to cater to buyer preferences and drive online sales conversions. By using Digital River’s international payments gateway, Klarna can offer its customers convenient access to world-class payment processing services.”
