Can You Use Klarna at John Lewis?

You can use Klarna at John Lewis, even though the retailer’s website doesn’t list it as a payment option. To do so, you can use Klarna’s one-time card feature in the Klarna App for Android or iOS to spread the cost of your purchase over three months or defer payment for 30 days without interest. This can be done at any online retailer that takes Visa cards. It’s the same way you use Klarna at Dunelm, among other retailers like Argos and Selfridges.

How to Use Klarna at John Lewis

To get started, head over to John Lewis website using the browser in the Klarna App, and add your some items to your basket. Once you’re ready to pay, click the ‘Pay with K’ button. Enter the total value of the transaction, including shipping, and select a payment term. You’ll then be awarded a virtual card that you can use when you reach checkout. You’ll need to copy and paste this long card number, expiry date and security code when you’re ready. 

Remember that your payment card on file will be debited the first instalment immediately if choose Pay in 3. If the creation of the one-time card was declined, check you have enough money available and try again. This means that if you’re buying something for £75, you’ll need to be able to hand over £25 right away. But if you defer payment for 30 days you won’t have to hand over a penny at the time you submit the order.

How Do Klarna Refunds Work?

If you’ve returned everything in the order, all instalments made will be refunded back to the debit card linked to your Klarna account. Meanwhile, partial refunds are deducted from the outstanding balance and spread evenly across the remaining payments. So if you have two payments of £10 outstanding and return an item worth £10, the two payments will be reduced to £5. If no additional payments are due, a full refund will be issued.

How to Finance John Lewis Purchases at a Store

However, if you’re looking to shop at one of John Lewis physical locations, we recommend Zilch. Klarna has the Klarna Card — but that requires you to pay the balance in full in 30 days. Zilch, on the other hand, lets you spread the cost over 4 interest-free instalments, paid every two weeks, using Apple Pay or Google Pay in any store that accepts MasterCard. Similar to a credit card, you’ll have a credit limit. But there’s no hard credit check.
