Swoon sitting comfortably with new payments

By Retail Technology | Tuesday July 17 2018

Online furniture seller Swoon is offering flexible financing with new payments software

The business has chosen Slice it from Klarna as its new payments process which enables shoppers to make purchases by slicing the cost into monthly instalments with payments of £500 or more being spread over 6 months, and those of £1,000 plus over 12 months. 

Klarna’s technology also simplifies the checkout process, allowing consumers to make their purchases by simply entering their email and delivery address, rather than having to provide complicated log-in information and credit or debit card details.

User experience 

Swoon has recently undergone a rebrand  following a round of investment of £15 million led by Octopus Ventures in 2017. 

Josh Guthrie, head of customer experience at Swoon, said: “We believe that everyone should be able to buy beautifully designed and crafted furniture at reasonable prices. We were first drawn to Klarna due to its simplicity and user-friendly design and feel they’re the ideal partner to help us improve our user experience.”
