Klarna announced that it has partnered with Fender in the United States, whereby customers shopping for the guitar maker’s musical instruments, gear and digital products on fender.com can take advantage of Klarna’s payment option to pay in four equal, interest-free installments or get low-interest financing for up to 36 months.

To celebrate the launch of the partnership, Fender is giving away a Classic Vibe ’70s Stratocaster to one winner through Klarna’s social media channels.

“We are excited to partner with Klarna to bring music into more lives, especially now when many of us are spending a lot of time at home learning new skills,” said Tammy Van Donk, Fender’s executive vice president of sales, Americas and EMEA. “We are always looking for ways to make music accessible to more people with our dealer partners and directly through Fender. By giving players alternative payment options through Klarna on Fender.com, we’re opening up an opportunity for musicians of all levels to explore creativity and continue their musical journey.”

Klarna offers buy now, pay later and the future of shopping. With 85 million customers and more than 200,000 retail partners worldwide, the Klarna e-commerce platform and app provide consumers with flexibility and control, while creating a smoother way to shop and pay.

“In recent weeks, we’ve seen musical instrument purchases made through Klarna’s app in the US increase significantly, suggesting that people have been seeking to bring more music into their lives as they weather stay-at-home orders,” said David Sykes, head of U.S. at Klarna. “We are proud to launch our partnership with Fender to help musicians, from professionals to beginners, shop for the brand’s famous instruments with a greater level of financial control and flexibility.”
