Klarna, the AI-powered global payments network and shopping assistant, introduces Klarna Plus in the US, marking its foray into the subscription service model. Available for a monthly fee of $7.99 through the Klarna app, Klarna Plus offers exclusive benefits to loyal Klarna shoppers, including waived service fees on the One Time Card product, double rewards points, and special deals with popular brands.

David Sandstrom, Chief Marketing Officer at Klarna, sees Klarna Plus as a significant milestone, catering to the demands of dedicated users seeking an enhanced shopping experience through a subscription model. With the global subscription e-commerce market projected to reach $2419.69 billion by 2028, Klarna Plus aims to capitalize on this trend by providing a suite of premium benefits for a nominal fee.
