Appliances Online has become the first Australian retailer to partner with global payment provider, Klarna, following its recent launch into the local market with the Klarna shopping app.

With Klarna, customers can ‘Pay in 4’ equal instalments, interest free and with no fees when they pay on time. When shopping with Appliances Online via the Klarna app, the payment option can be used for refrigerators, washing machines, air-conditioning, coffee machines, vacuum cleaners and more. All purchases are accessible via the app for increased control, transparency and flexibility.
