Marquetspace launches ‘unique’ service

Thanks to a new unique partnership, users of Marquetspace’s print services can now benefit from two flexible payment options.

In what is believed to be an industry first, Marquetspace has partnered with Swedish bank, Klarna. Customers can now opt to either pay 30 days later or split the payment into three instalments – both options are interest-free and do not involve lengthy credit applications.

With the ‘slice it in 3’ option, users can pay one third of the order at the time of purchase, then a third 30 days later, and the final third an additional 30 days later.

Whilst a credit application is not needed to make use of this service, Klarna will use the customer’s name, home address and date of birth to complete a ‘soft’ credit search. This is a search that doesn’t show up to external parties such as other lenders or even Marquetspace itself.

When we saw what Klarna were doing, we thought our clients might find it useful, particularly over the summer months when cashflow can be a bit tight

Peter Gunning, chief executive officer of Grafenia, which owns Marquetspace, comments on the new scheme: “We’re always looking for ways we can help our clients. As well as fancy new products like giant deckchairs and pop-up kiosks, we try to innovate with new services.

“Marquetspace sells to thousands of resellers, like printers and designers. We know that sometimes they’re paying for work before their clients have paid them. When we saw what Klarna were doing, we thought our clients might find it useful, particularly over the summer months when cashflow can be a bit tight.”
