Klarna payment methods
This tutorial helps you integrate Klarna´s standalone payment methods on your website.
By adding Klarna's payment methods, you enable your consumers to try before they buy, finance purchases on your store via Klarna Credit, or make use of other payment methods made available by Klarna. Klarna offers these payment methods via a widget, called Klarna Payments widget or just "the widget", which you add inline on your checkout page.
Klarna's Payments widget lets you
- easily add Klarna's payment methods in your checkout
- apply your visual guidelines to get a branded experience
Klarna’s widget contains the following integration components:
- a Payments API, a REST API used for creating a credit session and creating an order, server side
