E-Commerce Giants Klarna and Lyst Partner to Advance Seamless Mobile Shopping

Today, international e-commerce payments provider Klarna, announces a partnership with Lyst, the largest online fashion site. On the Lyst platform, users will now be able to use Klarna’s mobile checkout solutions to easily purchase products from hundreds of US brands, creating the most seamless shopping experience for consumers.

When checking out online, Lyst shoppers can now use Klarna’s unique technology to easily buy products by entering simply their email and shipping address, instead of having to enter complicated log-in information, credit card or debit card details. Users can also choose to enter credit card information later when it’s convenient for them, and will now have the option to use Klarna’s “pay after delivery” solution to pay for the product after it has already been shipped to them, letting them try on their item before purchasing. 

After a period of A/B testing, Lyst has seen a 5.1% increase in conversion that has led to a 6.8% increase in the total merchandise sales on the platform. Klarna has also enabled an additional level of 3-D security for retailers, improving the overall checkout. 

On the Lyst platform, shoppers can currently browse products from over 12,000 of the world’s greatest fashion designers, stores, boutiques and e-tailers all of which are aggregated into one universal shopping cart. The addition of Klarna to the universal shopping cart signifies the future of online shopping: a fast mobile experience and easy checkout combined with the variety of diverse styles offered by Lyst.
