River Island and Klarna have teamed up to offer an easier way for customers to buy online using a ‘Pay in 3’ system.
Shoppers at the high street fashion retailer can split the total cost of their online purchases into three equal interest free monthly instalments with Klarna.
The new method schedules payments automatically, with the first payment made at the point of purchase via either a debit or credit card, and the final two payments being taken 30 and 60 days after purchase.
“Over the last two years, River Island has invested heavily in its technology and customer service,” Klarna UK general manager Luke Griffiths
“By introducing Klarna, the team demonstrates its commitment to delivering a great experience for customers. Klarna is proven to increase conversion and customer acquisition for over 4,500 UK retailers, so we’re confident that we will accelerate River Island’s growth plans with a truly customer-centric payment experience.”
River Island UK Chief Customer Officer Sean Hastings said: “Introducing Klarna’s ‘Pay in 3’ gives our customers a more flexible way of buying into our latest collections. It’s a great benefit to River Island customers and Klarna’s credentials in this space made them the right partner to make it happen.”
