Klarna 101: A Lexie Guide

Published: October 20, 2023

Updated: November 16, 2023

In the world of online shopping, there are many ways to pay for your goods. One such payment method is Klarna, which is a third-party, buy-now, pay-later service, which allows you to receive your goods while setting up a monthly payment plan. It offers a safe, convenient, and efficient flexible financing option to pay for your Lexie OTC hearing aids.

Lexie Hearing is excited to offer Klarna as a payment method for your Lexie OTC hearing aids. Find out more about what it is and how it works below.

What is Klarna?

Klarna was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2005, offering shoppers a convenient way to purchase their goods. Since then, it now supports over 500,000 merchants in 45 countries and is used by 150 million active shoppers. Their promise to consumers is: ‘Klarna is the smoothest & safest way to get what you want today and pay over time. No Catch. Just Klarna.’.

Klarna is what’s known as a “flexible finance” solution, by securing a small loan in order for you to make your purchase through their app. You then pay off the “loan amount” through a payment option of your choice, such as 4 interest-free payments, pay in 30 days, get monthly financing, or pay immediately with a debit or credit card. 

Will there be a credit check?

Klarna may perform a soft credit check on your profile, however, it will not affect your credit score and you do not need a minimum credit score either to apply.

How to use Klarna

Using Klarna is quite simple and we give you step-by-step instructions below. First, you will need to download the Klarna app and set up your account.
