In order to make online payments more flexible for shoppers, ASOS has partnered with one of Europe’s leading payments providers, Klarna, and their pay after delivery technology following a successful partnership in Germany over the past three years.
Klarna’s pay-after-delivery allows retailers to bridge the gap between the online and offline shopping experience. When making a purchase on desktop or mobile, customers in the Nordics will now have the option to pay for their products up to 14 days after delivery – giving them the chance to try on their purchases before paying.
This continues ASOS’ commitment to providing the best customer experience possible and follows closely on from the launch of free returns for all EU customers.
ASOS is a global fashion destination for 20-somethings. It sells cutting-edge fashion and offers a wide variety of fashion-related content, making ASOS.com the hub of a thriving fashion community. ASOS sells over 85,000 branded and own-label products through localized mobile and web experiences, delivering from its fulfillment centers in the UK, the US and Europe to almost every country in the world.
ASOS tailors the mix of own-label, global and local brands sold through each of its eight local language websites: UK, US, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia and Russia.
ASOS’s websites attracted 117.5m visits during August 2016 (August 2015: 90.5m) and as of August 31, 2016, had 12.4m active customers (31 August 2015: 9.9M), of which 4.7M were located in the UK and 7.7M were located in its international territories (31 August 2015: 3.9M in the UK and 6.0M internationally).
