Klarna expands its popular in-store payment offering in the US

gbafNews28

NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Klarna, the leading global payments and shopping service, today announced that it has expanded its in-store payment services to more than 60,000 stores nationwide, including top retail brands such as H&M, O.N.S. Clothing, The North Face and Timberland. Customers will now be able to make purchases using Klarna's four, interest-free payments at even more physical stores ahead of the peak holiday shopping season.  

“While online retail continues to accelerate at a rapid pace, consumers still value the in-store experience and expect the same level of service and convenience whether they're shopping online or in person. Given how essential smartphones have become in consumers' everyday lives, it's critical for retailers to provide a seamless shopping experience across channels that also includes flexible, mobile payment options at checkout,” said Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO of Klarna. “We're thrilled to be able to expand our in-store offering ahead of the peak holiday season.” 

According to Klarna's 2020 Holiday Retail Report, a majority of US consumers think it's more fun to shop in physical stores during the holidays (54%) than online (46%). About 30% of total shoppers surveyed, including 39% of Gen Z and millennials, would also spend more this holiday season if they could break their payments up into interest-free installments over two months.  

To pay with Klarna at participating physical stores, customers can use the app to create a one-time virtual card that gets added to their preferred digital wallet. They can then use their mobile device to make a purchase as they typically would at any store that accepts contactless payments. Klarna's in-store option provides shoppers with greater payment security and flexibility, as well as a contactless payment method at a time when both retailers and shoppers are prioritizing health and safety measures. Shoppers can find the full list of available retailers in the Klarna app by clicking on the “In-store” button at the bottom of the screen. 

Launched in January 2020 with leading brands like MCM, Journeys, rue21, and Sephora, the in-store solution has grown increasingly popular among shoppers and merchants alike. It's clear that customers enjoy the ability to spread purchases across four, interest-free payments whether they're shopping online or at a physical store. Retail brands benefit from the ease and convenience of accepting Klarna payments without technical integration. Klarna will be adding hundreds of the largest and most popular brands to its in-store service through the rest of the year and into 2021. 

Klarna is the pioneer and global leader of buy now, pay later options. With more than 200,000 retail partners and 90 million shoppers worldwide, Klarna offers consumers convenience, flexibility and control. The Klarna app, which enables customers to shop at any online store while offering a best-in-class user experience, sees more than 12 million monthly active users globally. In September the Klarna app took the number one spot among the most downloaded shopping apps in the US App Store.

Zane Morton to oversee DHL Global Forwarding in New Zealand and Fiji

gbafNews28

  • The logistics veteran brings four decades of DHL experience to the key role in the South Pacific

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 1 December 2020 – As the business in DHL Global Forwarding New Zealand and Fiji continue on its growth trajectory, the freight specialist of the Deutsche Post DHL Group officially appoints Zane Morton as Managing Director for these two countries in the South Pacific effective today. Having built an illustrious career with the Group spanning almost four decades, Morton will lead the operations in New Zealand and oversee the growth of the business in Fiji, managed by Country Manager Ray Viegas, who will report to him.

“Across his many different roles and responsibilities, Zane has proven himself to be a respected leader, who is customer-oriented in his outlook and finely attuned to developments in the logistics and freight forwarding industry. We are confident he will help our businesses in New Zealand and Fiji reach greater heights amidst the current challenging microenvironment and augment existing synergies between our operations in New Zealand and Fiji,” said Charles Kaufmann, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding North Asia South Pacific.

 

New Zealand’s exports grew 58.6% in the last decade between 2009 and 2019. DHL Global Forwarding is optimistic about the growth potential in the market and considers perishables, life sciences and healthcare, amongst others, as promising areas that the company would further develop.

 

Reporting to Kaufmann in this new role, Morton said, “I’m acutely aware that I’m taking on the role at a very interesting time. In the short term, the industry will face a massive undertaking of delivering an unprecedented volume of more than 10 billion doses of vaccines worldwide; at the same time, DHL Global Forwarding is undergoing a digital transformation with the rollout of myDHLi in accordance to the Group’s Strategy 2025 to futureproof the organization and improve operational excellence in the long term. I am excited to lead the teams in New Zealand and Fiji to take on these challenges and leverage the opportunities to bring the business to greater heights.”

 

DHL recently published a white paper on securing a stable supply chain for vaccines and medical goods during health crises and how the transport of vaccines as a highly temperature-sensitive product can be managed effectively to combat the further spread of the COVID-19 virus. The global logistics leader has been serving the life science and healthcare sector for over 20 years, shipping all sorts of pharmaceutical and medical-related products, including vaccines and therapeutics, worldwide.

 

Morton first joined DHL in New Zealand in 1983 and held various positions during his career, including Operations Management, Country Sales & Marketing Manager, Country Ocean Freight Manager and Wellington Branch Manager. In 2006, he relocated to Dubai where he was the Regional Marketing and Sales Manager for DHL Middle East and Africa for DHL Global Forwarding. He returned to New Zealand in 2011 and was appointed Head of Ocean Freight in 2012, and subsequently named Head of Sales in 2015.

 

Note to editors:

The New Zealand- Europe FTA represents an opportunity to gain better access to the bloc’s almost 500 million consumers through lower tariffs, and new multi-modal shipping options could also lead to even more savings for importers. Read more on DHL’s Logistics of Things.
