Setting Klarna as a Payment Method

Fatwa ID: 03539

Answered by: Maulana Moinul Abu Hamza

 

Question

A question about online trading.

I run an online shop and can offer various payment methods to my customers. One of these payment methods is Klarna. The principle is as follows:

 

A customer wants to order a product and transfer the money for it. A transfer would normally take several days. However, if he pays with Klarna, I will receive the money from Klarna immediately, and the customer can pay Klarna within 14 days. Klarna is an advantage because it also guarantees absolute cyber and legal security for me as a dealer. There are no fees for the customer. However, I pay a small transaction fee per sale, which is set in advance.

 

Is it allowed for me to offer my customers this payment method?

Answer:

As the seller, you have the right to seek payment from the buyer of the product or the one who is a guarantor for him, so this is permissible.[1]
