How to set up Klarna Checkout

Klarna Checkout setup includes two steps.

Step 1 - activation of payments

Normally, step 1 happens automatically when you subscribe to Finqu. However, you may need to do it separately if, for example, you have used another payment method before. In that case, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Click on Klarna.

  2. Click the Manage button under Klarna Checkout.

  3. Click on the Activate button and fill in the order form.

Once step 1 is completed, it usually takes about 2 to 3 business days for payments to start working. Klarna may contact you to ask for more information about your online store or business.

Step 2 - activation of settlements

Once step 1 has been completed, you should then be able to give Klarna your account details and information about your company. You can also fill in this information via the Klarna app page as follows:

  1. Click on Klarna.

  2. Click on the Manage button under Klarna Checkout.

  3. Click on the Fill information button and follow the instructions.

On the Klarna app page, there is an Actions menu that allows you to do the following:
