How does Pay later in 30 days work?
Once your order is confirmed, you will receive an e-mail with payment instructions within two days from Klarna. You will then have 30 days to decide if you are happy with your order and only pay when you are. Complete the payment online, at your convenience, with no extra cost. You can pay via credit or debit card in the Klarna app or by logging into www.klarna.com/uk.
Am I eligible for Pay later in 30 days?
To use Pay later in 30 days you must be at least 18 years old. Whilst this option is widely promoted, Pay later in 30 days is subject to your financial circumstances. When choosing Pay later in 30 days, our assessment will not affect your credit rating.
How can I increase my chances of being accepted for Pay later in 30 days?
Klarna is unique and offers Pay later in 30 days based on a number of factors such as the order value, previous order history and item availability. If you are 18 or over, you can improve your chances of being offered Pay later in 30 days by ensuring you provide your full name and accurate address details and shipping to your registered billing address. All orders are assessed individually. Just because you have had Pay later in 30 days before does not mean it will be offered for every order and in turn, as it is denied does not mean it will be denied for all future orders.
Will a credit search take place against me?
Klarna may run so-called unrecorded enquiries (or soft credit searches) that do not affect credit scoring and are only visible to you and Klarna, but not visible to other lenders. Neither Klarna nor Aurora London run credit searches against you that could impact your credit rating.
Why have I not been offered Pay later in 30 days?
Although Pay later in 30 days is widely promoted it is not always universally available. The Pay later in 30 days method is automatically generated by algorithms that are dependent upon a number of factors including the amount of the order, the online store, previous order history and item availability. Alternatively, you are able to complete your order by paying by credit or debit card at the checkout.
What are my payment options with Klarna?
You can pay with debit or credit card immediately in the checkout or take advantage of our Pay later in 30 days payment option, where you can pay for the goods once you have received them via credit card or debit card. You can always monitor your outstanding payments in the Klarna app.
What happens if I return my order?
As soon as Aurora London has accepted your return (this can take between seven to 10 workings days), then Klarna will cancel the statement or refund your payment. The return will be reflected in the Klarna app immediately.
What happens if I do not pay for my order?
Payment is due 30 days after the item is shipped. To help you pay on time, we will alert you two days before payment is due. You will receive a push notification from the Klarna app or e-mail reminders to pay, and, if very late, we will also send you a text or letter, too. Your credit score will not be impacted by using Klarna’s ‘Pay later in 30 days’ products even if you have failed to pay on time.
I have been asked to go to the Klarna site. Is this correct?
If you have chosen Pay later in 30 days, Klarna will send you an e-mail with more information on how to pay. Your e-mail will contain a link to Klarna where you can settle your payment with your credit or debit card. You are always able to view payments instructions in the Klarna app.
What do I need to provide when I make a purchase?
If you want to make a purchase with Klarna you need to provide your name, address and e-mail address. For some orders you may need to provide your mobile number or date of birth too. All information will be sent to your e-mail address, including payment reminders and links to your online statements. It is important that you give us the correct details, otherwise you will not receive the payment information.
Is my payment information safe?
Payment information is processed securely by Klarna. No card details are transferred to or held by Aurora London. All transactions take place via connections secured with the latest industry standard security protocols.
Can I pay before the due date?
You can pay for your order at any point after you receive the e-mail from Klarna with the details of your payment on. Just follow the instructions on this e-mail or in the Klarna app to pay for your order.
Have you received my payment?
If you pay by card, Aurora London will confirm your order right away. If paying by Pay later in 30 days, Klarna will send you a payment confirmation to the e-mail address that you have used for your order. If you have made a payment but not received the payment confirmation, you can always check the status of your order and payments by logging in to the Klarna app or www.klarna.com/uk.
What happens to my statement, when I've returned the goods?
Once Aurora London has received the return (partial or full) and you have received their confirmation of this, an updated statement will be sent to you by Klarna if you have made a partial return. With a full return, your statement will be closed. You are always able to monitor the status of your order in the Klarna app.
I have received a statement, but I have not yet received my goods
You have 30 days to pay, so you do not need to pay right away. If your due date is near and there is no sign of your goods, please e-mail email@example.com to check on delivery. You can also contact Klarna’s customer service so that we can postpone the due date on your payment or put the order on hold in the Klarna app while you wait for the goods to arrive.
I have asked for a refund. How will I be refunded?
If you have paid for your order with a card, the refund will be made back to the same card. If you have not paid the statement yet, then the refund will reduce the statement or cancel it completely.
I haven’t received an e-mail with my statement/payment information
If you do not have your statement number to hand you can log into the Klarna app or at www.klarna.com/uk, where you will find all of your orders and be able to make payments.
