Wednesday 25 January 2023 13:13 CET | News

Sweden-based fintech Klarna has launched a spending overview solution to offer consumers in the UK with insights into their spending habits and control over their finances.


Entitled ‘Money Story’, the personal spending summary of 2022 is available in the UK Klarna app and aims to provide millions of consumers with clear and engaging spending insights in order to make money management approachable and to encourage smart financial habits. Money Story helps reveal spending habits to consumers in an engaging and familiar manner, as it leverages the animated ‘story’ format that has been popularised by social media.


Money management and how the solution falls into place

Based on details provided in the announcement, living more economically ranks amongst the top new year’s resolutions for consumers in the UK on a yearly basis. As highlighted in Klarna’s 2022 Holiday Survey, UK-based consumers have as their fourth most popular resolution for 2023 saving more or spending less. Having this knowledge at its basis, Money Story looks to have this changed by offering consumers clear and concise spending insights that can be converted into financial goals for 2023 leveraging Klarna’s money management tools.

Money Story helps simplify how consumers understand their spending throughout the year by visualising spending patterns and aims to make financial management increasingly fun and engaging through its animated quiz questions that prompt users to reflect on where they spent money in 2022. In addition to their total spending for 2022, consumers are also provided with insights segmented by month, retailer, and category, and the solution includes data from all spending with Klarna, including purchases carried out with the Klarna App, the Klarna Card and at partnered retailers’ checkout.
