Does Klarna impact my credit score?
Please see the quote below from Klarna and link to blog post about how they work...
"To use ‘Pay 30 days later’ or ‘Instalments’, a soft credit check is undertaken by Klarna on the customer. This does not leave a record on their credit file that will either impact the customer’s credit score or is visible to other lenders. For a customer’s credit file to be impacted, a lender would have to submit missed payment information to the credit reference agency (CRA). Klarna does not report missed payments to the CRA in relation to these products. It is therefore not accurate to say that “Klarna’s ‘Pay later’ schemes damaging millions of shoppers’ credit scores”.
There have been articles about people's mortgage applications being impacted by buy now pay later agreements. We have used this quote from this article to demonstrate how this might impact you.
"A Barclays spokesperson said: "As a responsible lender we assess the affordability of each and every mortgage application. All credit agreements, including BNPL agreements, are included in this affordability assessment.""
