Klarna purchase power is the amount of money you can spend on products with the Klarna app. Think of it as a credit limit you have with a credit card. However, unlike a credit limit, the purchase power amount often changes depending on your payment history with Klarna.
What does purchase power mean?
Some people think of purchase power as free money but this is incorrect. Purchase power is actually the amount of money you are eligible to spend with the Klarna app.
Purchase power was introduced to help reduce the number of denied payments. Rather than waiting to see if a payment is approved or denied at checkout, purchase power is the amount of money you can spend with the guarantee your payment will be approved. No more denied payments!
What is the max purchase power?
There is no set maximum purchase power on Klarna. It is impossible to know the highest purchase power as everyones will have a different limit.
Your individual max purchase power will be based on your history with Klarna. For example, how long you have been a customer, the amount of transactions you have used Klarna for, the amount of failed or late payments.
All of these factors will help give you a maximum purchase power which is unique to you.
