Klarna partnered with The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), which invested in the global fintech company last year to launch services in Australia and New Zealand. CBA app users now will be able to easily connect their CBA account to a Klarna account, enabling smooth shopping in a few easy steps.
