Does ASOS accept Klarna?

If you’re looking to pay for your ASOS order through Klarna, you’re in luck.

The online retailer accepts Klarna and you have two options.

You can pay later, which gives you 30 days to pay for your order once it’s been shipped. There are no fees or interest associated with this option.

Alternatively, you can spread the cost of your orders over three payments with Pay Later in 3.

Why will ASOS not let me use Klarna?

If the site isn’t letting you use Klarna, it could be for a variety of reasons.

Klarna may have rejected your application to pay on account. This could be because they may not have been able to check your details using the billing address provided. You’ll need to make sure that your billing address is the same address that your bank is registered to.

If you’ve never used Klarna and have entered a different shipping address to your billing address, your payment may also be declined.

You may also have outstanding payments due on previous Klarna statements. Simply pay these off and try Pay Later with Klarna again. If you’ve recently paid off outstanding statements, you should allow 24 hours before trying to pay through Klarna again.
