Alibaba Group’s global retail online marketplace, AliExpress, has added Klarna’s Pay later option through Alipay and Adyen’s platforms.
The first stage of this partnership will enable AliExpress’ shoppers in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Finland to use Pay later and pay for their goods after delivery. The aim is to expand to additional markets throughout the course of the year.
“We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways of improving the shopping experience for our large number of consumers, and in Klarna, we have found a like-minded partner,” says Cheer Zhang, Head of Global Consumer and Market Operation at AliExpress.
“Pay later has established itself as one of the most preferred payment alternatives across certain European markets, with high demand from consumers and we are excited to add this popular option to our checkout on multiple markets. We together with Adyen and Klarna look forward to expanding to more markets in the future.”
