What’s the difference between Klarna Checkout and Klarna Payments?

Klarna Checkout is a complete checkout experience from Klarna. It’s an iframe based checkout that to a large extent replaces WooCommerce own checkout. The customer identifies with personal number and ZIP and then decides how they want to pay, either with credit- or debit card, invoice, direct payment or installment. The big news with the new plugin is that it supports Klarnas global checkout feature.

  • The new KCO plugin has support for Klarnas global checkout. This means that customers from over 160 countries can use the checkout (fallback to card payments).
  • The new plugin doesn’t require a separate checkout page and no unique shortcode. Instead it follows the WooCommerce standard checkout flow as much as possible.
  • Better compatibility with other plugins that extends the functionality in the checkout (newsletter, extra checkout fields and so on).

Klarna Payments, on the other hand, is displayed like a regular payment method in the standard checkout. You choose which payment methods you offer your customers. Choose between invoice, direct payment, credit/debit card or installment.

  • Klarna Payments offers all of Klarnas payment methods but as a regular payment method in WooCommerce standard checkout.
  • Next to the selection of the payment method a small Klarna widget will appear where the customer can read more about the payment method they choose.
