Klarna’s Wacom partnership to expand US footprint

European payment firm Klarna hopes its new partnership with Wacom will accelerate its growth in the United States. A manufacturer of pen tablets and displays, Wacom allows Klarna retail financing to extend to creative interface technology and software.

In a release Klarna said its online financing solution only requires the entering of a few fields of information while providing instant qualification status.

“We want our online customers to have an enjoyable and rewarding shopping experience and the financing program from Klarna provides a simple way for people to purchase our products,” Wacom Creative Branded Business SVP Ed Neumann said.

Starting today, Wacom’s users can take advantage of Klarna’s simple financing option.

“The partnership between Wacom and Klarna further solidifies how flexible financing options for consumers can yield huge benefits for consumer electronics retailers online, with increased sales and fewer abandoned carts,” Klarna North America CEO Brian Billingsley said.
