Consumer electronics retailer Maplin has launched a new online payments service which allows UK customers more versatility in how they pay for purchases
The new initiative - courtesy of Klarna’s Pay Later and Slice It services - will allow customers to pay later or spread the cost of their purchases over time.
Pay later enables online or mobile customers making purchases of £200 or less to receive their products and pay for them 30 days later, with no interest or fees.
customers can choose Slice It at the checkout, which allows shoppers to spread the cost of purchases of £600 over equal monthly payments.
Maplin is one of the first retailers to adopt Klarna
’s payment options to help their customers access not only physical products, but also services - such as security installation and maintenance.
Alexander Allen, services director at Maplin, said: “Making sure our customers have the best possible user experience is of the utmost importance to us. With more people than ever shopping online, the payment flexibility provided by Klarna’s solutions is a real added benefit for our shoppers.”
