Klarna, the global payments network and shopping destination, today announced its partnership with Life Style Sports to offer flexible payment options to Irish shoppers buying the latest performance and sportswear.
With Klarna’s Pay in 3 service, shoppers can conveniently purchase all their favourite sports brands at lifestylesports.com and pay in three easy, interest free instalments at the checkout. The news comes during a busy summer and upcoming autumn of sports.
Life Style Sports has been a trusted destination for performance and sportswear since its establishment in 1979. Following the launch of the Irish retailer’s new ‘For The Love Of It’ brand position, Life Style Sports recognises how flexible payment options allow consumers to discover and participate in their favourite sports and activities whilst also enabling them to remain in control of their finances.
“This partnership has come at an important time for Life Style Sports during a busy season of sport with the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the Rugby World Cup,” says Mark Carter, Group Finance & I.T. Director at Life Style Sports’ parent company Stafford Group. “By making our retail experience more seamless and convenient, our partnership with Klarna will help to remove financial barriers for many fans across Ireland who want to turn to sports and fitness in their own lives.”
“Since launching in Ireland in 2021, we’ve seen how keen shoppers across the country are for more flexibility in how they pay for their purchases and manage their finances,” said Colin Creagh, Head of Klarna, Ireland. “With over half a million customers using Klarna across Ireland, there is a clear appetite for more payment method choices. This partnership with Life Style Sports is an exciting reflection of this, and we look forward to enabling customers to manage the costs of keeping fit and supporting their teams this Summer.”
