Klarna is a global “buy now, pay later” payment method. Based on your guest’s country and the transaction amount, Klarna offers various payment options, including installments, pay later, financing, and pay now. With each option, Klarna immediately pays you in full and handles collecting the amount from your guest. To enable this payment solution in Sirvoy, the presentment currency (the currency of the charge) for your prices has to be in EUR, USD, GBP, DKK, SEK, or NOK. More information about conditions and supported merchant and customer countries can be found in Stripe’s documents here. This payment method is only available in Sirvoy when payment is set as always required.
To use this payment method, take the following steps:
Activate Klarna as a payment method on your Stripe account dashboard under Settings -> Payment Methods -> Klarna, click “Request access” and agree to the terms and conditions. Click “Add Klarna to your integrations” and select “Add Klarna to prebuilt checkout form”. In some cases, click “Turn on” instead to activate this payment method.
In Sirvoy, go to Settings -> Payments & invoicing -> Card payments and click “Edit”. With Stripe selected as your payment method and payment set as obligatory, activate the “Klarna” switch.
On the Stripe payment page, Klarna will now appear as one of the available payment methods for all guests from the supported countries. If the guest chooses Klarna as the payment method, he is redirected to the Klarna payment page to provide payment details. After a successful transaction, the guest is redirected back to the booking engine.
