Klarna launches browser extension

Klarna is set to launch its own browser extension.

The Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) provider said the extension enables consumers to shop using Klarna on their desktop at all online stores, even if the retailer is not a Klarna partner.

Klarna said it had previously been beta testing the product with over 100,000 consumers.

Desktop shopping accounts for 32 per cent of all e-commerce traffic according to statistics cited by the company, whilst 44 per cent of online orders are placed on a desktop.

The Klarna browser extension is available today and is currently compatible with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, with support for Firefox and Safari set to be rolled out shortly.

The extension is available in the US, UK, Germany, and France and Klarna said it will be rolled out to the rest of its markets soon.

The new product will be powered by browser extension Piggy, which was recently acquired by the BNPL company.

“While mobile shopping is surging, we also see that many consumers still enjoy the comfort of browsing and comparing items on a larger desktop screen,” said David Fock, chief product officer at Klarna. “At Klarna, we want to offer consumers the world’s best shopping and payments experience - no matter what device they are using.

“With the introduction of our browser extension, consumers shopping on their desktop can now benefit from the convenience, control, and flexibility of Klarna’s 'Pay Later' services at all of their favourite online stores.”

He added: “Combined with the automatic couponing and cash back features, our new extension offers the ultimate shopping hack, saving time and money for consumers at every checkout.”
