How it works
Liberis API technology can be integrated directly into the platforms of its partners. These partners, usually e-commerce or payment platforms such as Klarna, can then provide their end customers with a value-added revenue-based financing service, with payment terms based on their actual transaction data.
The whole process is managed transparently within the Klarna ecosystem. Personalized and pre-approved financing offers are displayed in their dashboard or Klarna app. If interested, the merchant can go through a quick approval and subscription process and receive the funds within two business days of the request.
All transactions for finance – both receiving and paying – take place in the merchant’s Klarna account, at a pre-set rate of their choice.
Income-based funding options will be available immediately to Klarna merchants around the world in the coming months.
