This is a credit agreement between you and us. When we use ‘us’, ‘we’ or ‘our’ in this document, we mean Klarna Bank AB UK Branch. When we use ‘you’ in this document, we mean anyone who has bought something using Pay Later in 30 days (“Pay Later”) with Klarna.
1. Who can use Pay Later?
You must be a UK resident, over 18 years old and have a valid payment card to use Pay Later. When we say ‘valid payment card’, we mean the card must be in your name, and must not have expired. You should also make sure the card you use has enough money available to cover your payment.
Pay Later is a credit product. It’s our decision whether or not we start a credit agreement with you.
2. How do I Pay Later?
With Pay Later, you can pay for something you buy up to 30 days from the order placement or shipment of your goods or when services you have purchased become available. We will send you a payment reminder with details on how to make payment to us directly. If you’d like to pay off your balance before the 30 days is up you can make a payment early through the Klarna App by paying by card immediately.
3. When it’s time to pay, which cards does Klarna accept?
Klarna accepts most cards except prepaid cards. We’ll let you know at checkout if your card hasn’t been accepted.
4. What if something goes wrong?
Klarna offers consumers Buyer Protection which means for example that you as a consumer do not have to pay for the ordered goods until you have received them, and that Klarna will assist you with problems related to your purchase.
For more information and instructions please go to: https://www.klarna.com/uk/buyer-protection-description/.
5. What happens if I cancel my purchase?
If you cancel your purchase, we’ll cancel your outstanding payment that’s due. If you want to return part of your order, you’ll only have to pay for the goods you want to keep.
6. What happens if I fail to pay for my purchase?
It is important that you complete your payment for your purchase no later than on the communicated due date. If you fail to pay on time, you will be in default, and may be unable to use Klarna’s services in the future. If you do not pay for your purchase, Klarna may engage with an external debt collection agency to collect on our behalf.
7. Will using Klarna affect my credit score?
No. We might carry out a limited credit search on you at a credit reference agency. This is a ‘soft credit check’, and won’t affect your credit score, or your chances of using credit in the future. You’ll be able to see it on your credit file, but no one else will.
We will report information to credit reference agencies about the payments you make, and about any payments that you fail to make on time. Failure to pay on time might affect your ability to obtain credit in the future from Klarna and other lenders. More information about reporting to credit reference agencies can be found in Klarnas Privacy Notice.
8. How does Klarna use my personal data?
We use your personal data to identify you and to carry out customer analysis, credit assessments, credit reporting to credit reference agencies, marketing and business development. We might also share your data with some partners (such as credit reference bureaus), which might be based outside of the UK.
Please see our Privacy Notice here for more information about your rights, how you can get in touch with us, or to complain. By using Klarna’s services you confirm that you’ve read this notice.
9. How do I make a complaint?
You can make a complaint through our customer service webpage using our live chat feature, or by calling us on (+44) 0808 189 3333. We try to handle all complaints as quickly and smoothly as possible.
If you’re not happy with our response, you can contact Klarna’s Complaints Adjudicator. Use the form provided alongside your final response.

10. Transfer of rights
This is a credit agreement between you and us. You can’t transfer your rights or obligations to anyone else unless you get our permission first.
We can transfer these terms, or any rights and obligations you have under them, at any time. We don’t need to ask for your consent to do this, unless transferring would harm your rights and responsibilities. This means we have the right to transfer the credit agreement to another provider without asking you.
