Sofort is a popular online payment method available in Germany and Austria. After selecting Sofort, the customer will be redirected to Sofort, a Klarna service, to initiate an online transfer. Sofort is acting as a payment initiation service and will enable the customer to securely log in to their bank to authorize the payment. Additionally each consumer will need to complete a user account login step for Klarna. Once the authentication and payment are done, the customer can continue shopping in your online shop.
