Klarna to Launch Credit Card in the UK
“Buy now, pay later” giant Klarna is putting further pressure on banks and credit card firms by launching its first physical card in the UK.

The card will allow customers to delay payments for up to 30 days when used at high street shops, having previously only offered UK customers buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) products online. The Swedish company said it intends to add more of its payment options, including splitting purchases into three monthly payments, to the card over time.

Klarna confirmed it had built up a waitlist of 400,000 consumers in the UK, which it claimed showed “strong demand for a new approach to credit,” following a successful launch in Germany and Sweden.
