Q: Who is Klarna? Klarna is a Swedish payment service provider that takes end-to-end responsibility for your payment. Klarna is the provider of Smoooth payments to more than 100,000 online stores. Over 60 million consumers worldwide have trusted Klarna to securely handle their payments.

Q: How does Slice it work? Spread the cost of your purchase into equal monthly payments with {INTERESTRATE}% interest. Slice it is a promotional plan on the Klarna Account.

Q: How do I use Slice it? When you shop online, Klarna’s system reviews each order to determine which payments options are available to you. If Slice it is offered, simply select this option. The first time you shop with Slice it you will be asked in to apply for a Klarna Account. If you’re approved Klarna will create an account for you and your order will be placed. Every time you shop with Slice it after that, you only need to agree to the purchase and won’t need to sign up again. The order amount will be added to your Klarna Account as additional promotional plans.

Q: I have been asked to go to Klarna's site. Is this correct? If you have chosen to pay with Slice it by Klarna, Klarna will send you an email with further details on how to pay.

Q: Can I pay less than the amount owed each month? You can at any time chose to pay your minimum payment instead of your interest-saver payment. Your monthly minimum payment is the amount to be paid to avoid incurring late fees on your Klarna Account. Should you chose to pay your minimum payment instead of your interest-saver payment this will mean you will lose your promotional plan offer and the remaining balance will start to incur interest at 18.9% APR (variable). It’s up to you.

Q: Do I need to be 18? Slice it is only available to people aged 18 or over and is an online exclusive payment method.

Q: How can I increase my chances of being accepted for Slice it? Klarna is unique and offers Pay later based on a number of factors such as the order value, previous order history and item availability. If you are 18 or over, you can improve your chances of being offered Pay later by ensuring you provide your full name and accurate address details and shipping to your registered billing address. All orders are assessed individually. Just because you have had Pay later before does not mean it will be offered for every order and in turn, as it is denied does not mean it will be denied for all future orders.

Q: How is my statement sent? If you chose to use Slice it, we will send your monthly statement notification via email with instructions on how to make a payment and an overview of your Klarna Account. Once you have been landed on your Klarna Account overview page, simply select ‘Make a payment’ and enter the amount you wish to pay towards your balance.

Your mobile number is required in case we need to reach you. All statements will be send to your email address. It's very important, that you give us the correct details, as otherwise you will not receive monthly statements and so be liable for late payment fees.

Q: Is my payment information safe? Payment information is processed securely by Klarna. No payment information is transferred to us or held by us. All transactions take place via connections secured with the latest industry standard security protocols.
