Klarna, Vend bring business software to boutique retailers across the UK and the US

Thursday 16 January 2020 08:58 CET | News

Vend, a retail point-of-sale software, has announced a partnership with global payments provider Klarna, aiming to improve customer experience.

The collaboration gives customers of boutique retailers more flexible payment options, levelling the playing field for small business to compete with enterprise retail and offer Klarna’s payments in-store across the UK. The roll out will take place in the US as well in 2020.

Vend’s collaboration with Klarna puts an enterprise tool in the hands of small business retailers, so that curated ‘hard to find’ items stocked by independent retailers can now be sold using buy-now-pay-later flexibility in-store on Vend ePOS, and online.

Small businesses can create a streamlined checkout experience that is not difficult to set up. Connecting to any smartphone, customers will be able to pay with Klarna by scanning a QR code or using a payment link provided via SMS or email, before filling out their details and selecting a payment option. Klarna then makes a real-time decision in seconds and Vend’s ePOS system will automatically reconcile Klarna sales at the end of the day.
