Forums » Plugin: WooCommerce Stripe Payment Gateway » Sofort payments followup(KLARNA)

  • Resolved Paul


    Hi there,

    Just a quick question, as i read that SOFORT payments are deprecated i was wondering if you will support KLARNA payments as it is the recommended followup according to the stripe documentation. In stripe i could simply enable the payment method, but the plugin doesn’t currently support it. Or am I missing something?

    All the best,

    Hi there @paulschiretz 👋

    Welcome to WooCommerce Support. I’d be happy to help you with this.

    Sofort payments followup(KLARNA)

    Indeed, Klarna purchased Sofort in 2014. In late 2023, Klarna started the process of retiring Sofort as a standalone payment method. Please see the timeline here for full details.

    Moving ahead, I’d recommend opting for Klarna Checkout.

    I trust that points you in the right direction, but if you have more questions, let us know.

    We’re happy to help.

    Hi @anastas10s,

    Thanks for the quick reply, in the Timeline you linked, it says that Klarna support is currently in closed BETA for the WooPayments plugin does that mean it will also come to this Plugin once tested and fully integrated?

    After all both solutions are handled by automattic….

    Thanks for referring the Klarna Checkout but I’m a bit hesitant to install another separate Payment Gateway – if there is no othee option, fine but as a dev i know thinks break and get tricky very fast once you combine more of the “same” things together… also i wouldn’t be to happy to test another gateway….

    All the best,

    Hi @paulschiretz,

    Yes, the Klarna support is currently in closed BETA for the WooPayments plugin, just as the docs you’ve been following describe. Once the testing phase is completed and all potential issues are ironed out, it is indeed planned to be fully integrated into the WooPayments plugin.

    We’re committed to providing the best solutions for our users, and we’re confident that the integration of Klarna into WooPayments will provide a seamless payment experience for your customers.

    Meanwhile, you can use the Klarna Checkout plugin to process the payment on your website using the Klarna payment method.

    I hope this clarifies your concern. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Ok, thanks for the explanation and for clarifying this!

    Cheers, Paul
