They say of the partnership that Mollie is the link between Klarna and the merchants, ensuring a straightforward process for new merchants as they will only have to work within the Mollie environment when onboarding and by default integrating the payment suite into the webshop. The plugins Mollie has developed for numerous major ecommerce platforms will also allow for easy integration of the solution into existing merchants’ webshops an help them sell more successfully.
We are continually impressed by Mollie, the innovative platform they have built and their efficient and clever solutions for ecommerce that are constantly developing. Exactly like Klarna they are everyday working to make payments better and this partnership is based on a common objective of helping merchants unlock growth, boost conversion rates and drive customer satisfaction and loyalty through a smoother shopping experience. Klarna has been growing strongly in the key markets of the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Finland and together with Mollie, our payment methods will be available to even more merchants and customers.

As we are always trying to find new ways to help merchants grow their business, adding Klarna to our payment method portfolio seemed like a perfect next step. From the first meeting, both us and Klarna have been very excited about the mutual collaboration. This partnership with Klarna is extremely valuable, as it allows merchants the easiest way to offer their customers the best online shopping experience.
