Required WooCommerce settings

Make sure that you have enabled pretty permalinks in your WordPress installation. Otherwise callbacks from Klarna back to your store won’t work and orders will not be updated with the correct order status/information.

Country settings

Each Klarna country has its own set of country specific settings. By adding merchant credentials to a specific country you also enable Klarna Payments as an available payment method for that country. Note that you need an agreement with Klarna for each country enabled and your store needs to be able to process purchases in the local currency.

  1. Description – Add a description for the specific country. If no description is added, the default description will be used.
  2. Title – Add a title for the specific country. If no title is added, the default title will be used.
  3. Production username – Username that you received from Klarna.
  4. Production password – Password that you received from Klarna
  5. Test username – Username for test purchases that you received from Klarna (if you have applied for a test account).
  6. Test password – Password for test purchases that you received from Klarna (if you have applied for a test account).

Iframe settings

With the iframe settings section you have the possibility to alter the appearance of the Klarna Payments Widget displayed in the checkout. Here you can change things like background colors, button colors and text colors.


  • If Klarna Payments isn’t displayed as an available payment method in checkout page make sure customer billing country is one of countries you have entered Klarna Payments credentials for and that selected currency matches customer billing country.

Go live

When the installation is done and you are ready to go live you need to contact Klarna integration support. Klarna will then verify the integration before the shop goes live.
