Leading payments and shopping platform Klarna has announced the launch of 'Virtual Shopping,' a new feature that aims to bring the in-store shopping experience online.
With Virtual Shopping, customers will be able to browse products on Klarna while communicating with actual in-store experts via video calls and live online chat sessions. The new feature presents a win-win for both shoppers and retailers; customers are able to easily receive feedback mid-shop, while stores are presented with the opportunity to extend their expertise beyond their physical locations.
"In the past, online shopping has been missing a key element: human interaction. With Virtual Shopping, we replicate the brick-and-mortar experience of receiving personalized advice from an in-store expert and bring it to the online realm," said
