Pay in 3 instalments
Thank you for choosing to shop with Klarna. This is a credit agreement between you and us. When we use ‘us’, ‘we’ or ‘our’ in this document, we mean Klarna Bank AB UK Branch. When we use ‘you’ in this document, we mean anyone who has bought something using Pay in 3 instalments with Klarna.
Who can use Pay in 3?You must be a UK resident, over 18 years old and have a valid payment card to use Pay in 3. When we say ‘valid payment card’, we mean the card must be in your name, and must not have expired. You should also make sure the card you use has enough money available to cover all the instalments.
Pay in 3 is a credit product. It’s our decision whether or not we start a credit agreement with you.
How do I Pay in 3 instalments?
With Pay in 3, you can pay for something you buy by dividing the cost into three equal instalments. At checkout, you’ll see an option to ‘Pay Later in 3 interest-free instalments’. When you choose this option, just enter your card details to complete your purchase. There won’t be any interest, fees or charges for using a debit or credit card. Although your bank might charge you interest or other fees on top. Which cards does Klarna accept?Klarna accepts most cards except prepaid cards. We may also not accept a card that’s due to expire in the near future. We’ll let you know at checkout if your card hasn’t been accepted. When will Klarna take my payments?At the point of purchase we’ll freeze the first of your three instalments on your card. This means you won’t be able to spend this money on anything else. Once we've received confirmation that your items have been shipped, the first of your three payments will be taken from your card automatically using the freezed amount. You’ll be able to see this on your card statement. If your items are not shipped, we’ll unfreeze your money and you’ll be able to spend it again. This may take a few days depending on which bank you’re with.The second payment will be taken 30 days after the first payment, and the last one 60 days after the first payment. The dates these payments are due will be sent to you by email, and you’ll be able to check them in our app. Sometimes the shop (instore or online merchant) doesn’t charge you for your whole order all at once. They might do this if they ship your items at different times. If this happens, we’ll make a new Pay in 3 plan for each part order they make. Each of these order parts will have its own due date, depending on when the shop confirms that part of your order. If something goes wrongWhat happens if my card is cancelled, or my card details change?If your card is cancelled, you’ll still have to pay us any money you owe as soon as we ask you to.If your card details change between your purchase and your final payment, you must tell us your new details. You can do this online. If you don’t give us this information, we might ask the bank for your details.
What happens if I cancel my purchase?
If you cancel your purchase, we’ll cancel any outstanding payments and pay back any amounts we’ve already taken from your card. We’ll do our best to pay you back as soon as we can.If you want to return part of your order, we’ll take the amount from your outstanding balance. It won’t count as a payment, so you’ll need to continue making your payments on the dates they’re due until your balance is paid in full.
How and when will I receive my refund?
Refunds for Pay in 3 are processed in different ways. It depends on the status of your payment schedule, how much you’ve paid and if the merchant has processed a full or partial refund.Full refundIf you’re due a full refund , we’ll cancel any remaining payments and refund anything you’ve already paid to the card you used to make the payment.Partial refundIf you’re due a partial refund that’s more than the remaining balance on your order, we’ll deduct the amount from the outstanding balance first. We'll then refund the difference to the card you used to pay off the purchase.If the partial refund is less than the remaining balance on your order, we’ll deduct the amount from the outstanding balance. We’ll then spread the remaining balance evenly over the remaining payments. What happens if you can’t take an instalment because I don’t have enough money on my card?If we can’t take the first instalment from your card, we’ll let you know, and try up to two times again to take the money. We’ll let you know when we’re going to try again, so you’ll have plenty of time to put some money onto your card to make the payment.If we can’t take the money from you after two attempts, we’ll roll the missed payment over to the second instalment. If we can’t take the second instalment, we’ll give you a few days to update your card details or make sure there’s enough money on your card. If we still can’t take payment after two more attempts, we’ll roll over the payment to the next and final instalment. If we still can’t take the payment, we’ll try again twice. If we’re still not successful, we might ask you to pay the outstanding amount directly or use a debt collection agency to collect the money for us. Klarna will always get in touch with you before charging your card. We will also contact you if we roll over a payment to the next due date or if we have to use a debt collection agency.Not paying your instalments on time might also mean you can’t use Klarna in the future.
Will using Klarna affect my credit score?
No. We might carry out a limited credit search on you at a credit reference agency. This is a ‘soft credit check’, and won’t affect your credit score, or your chances of using credit in the future. You’ll be able to see it on your credit file, but no one else will.
How does Klarna store my card details and my personal data?
We store your card details on our systems when you shop with us. We’ll use these details to approve future payments. Unless you opt out, we may also use this information to fill out your card details for your convenience when you buy things in the future. You can manage your cards online. If Klarna gets updated card details from your bank, we might also store this information on our system.We use your personal data to identify you and to carry out customer analysis, credit assessments, marketing and business development. We might also share your data with some partners (such as credit reference bureaus), which might be based outside of the UK.Please see our Privacy Notice here for more information about your rights, how you can get in touch with us, or to complain. By using Klarna’s services you confirm that you’ve read this notice.
