Yes, it is possible to buy gift cards with Klarna but it depends on two main factors. One factor is what type of gift card you want to buy. For example, do you want a physical gift card you can buy in-store or a digital gift card you can purchase and send online.
The other factor is where you want the gift card to be used. For example, you may want a Disney, Amazon or even a Visa branded gift card.
In this guide we’ll show you how to buy a gift card with Klarna no matter what your requirements. Let’s get started with buying gift cards in-store.
