Leading global retail bank, payments and shopping service, Klarna is now offering its flexible payment options to Kathmandu shoppers around the world. Klarna’s interest-free Pay in 4 option is now available to the leading outdoor lifestyle brand’s customers in Australia and New Zealand, and Pay in 3 is exclusively available to shoppers in the UK.

“Kathmandu is an iconic brand that has been leading the way in retail, outdoor lifestyle and sustainability for three decades. Over the past two years, the outdoors has become more important to more consumers – not just for adventure and exercise, but for wellbeing and escape, making Kathmandu’s ethos and products more relevant than ever,” Klarna chief expansion officer, Camilla Giesecke said.

Klarna’s launch with the retailer comes as Klarna deepens its presence and investment in the ANZ region. Klarna’s Australian team, based in Melbourne and Sydney offices, has grown significantly since launching in Australia in early 2020, and the company opened an office in Auckland in late 2021.

Klarna has added Pay Now to its suite of payment options for Australian shoppers, while in New Zealand, Klarna recently launched its popular rewards program, which allows consumers to earn points every time they make a payment on time, along with interactive delivery tracking, and deals.

Klarna’s shopping service combines the convenience of its flexible ‘Pay in 4’ services with smart app features like price drop notifications, deals, and the ability to track the carbon footprint of purchases.
