ShopifyShopify announced that Shopify Payments has expanded to Germany. This expansion offers German merchants with an out-of-the-box payments solution in addition to providing payment methods that are locally relevant to their customers. Working with payments provider Klarna, Shopify Payments will offer payment methods that best suit customers in Germany.

Shopify Payments is linked directly to a merchant’s store, allowing them to receive payments from buyers using credit cards around the world and payouts seamlessly without the hassle of a long set up process. All of this happens directly within the Shopify admin, right alongside the rest of their shop management, making it easier to manage orders and accounting. To meet the growing demand for payment methods that are relevant around the world, Shopify Payments has expanded its offering to Germany enabling Klarna's Pay Later and Pay Now solution, Sofort. This provides an improved customer experience for shoppers, and also allows merchants to reach more buyers.

With the integration, Shopify merchants will be able to offer their customers with the option to pay instantly via debit transfers at checkout or pay for their products up to 30 days later with no interest or fees. For shoppers in Germany, the “Pay later” option is one of the most widely used payment methods, giving shoppers the ability to trial a product before paying for it. Almost 27 percent of all German shoppers today prefer this payment method according to the research institute Statista.
