Klarna (v2) – P-Class changes for Finland in older integration Klarna Payment Methods (KPM)

In the beginning of 2021 Klarna will retire their old Klarna Checkout v2 (KCOv2) and Klarna Payment Gateways (KPM). The plugins we here at Krokedil have developed replaces those old plugins.

If you’re still using KPM you should therefore upgrade to Klarna Payments for WooCommerce and if you’re still using KCOv2 you should upgrade to Klarna Checkout for WooCommerce.

You can read more about this in the post Klarna retires the v2 platform.

Product Update: Changes in the Finnish Market

If you are using the older integration called Klarna Payments Methods (KPM), you as a merchant are required to make updates to your integration due to upcoming restrictions on interest rates and consumer credit in Finland.

The restrictions take effect on *September 1, 2019*, and will affect the consumer pricing on payment methods included in Klarna Payment Methods. This means that you as a merchant need to update the integrated p-classes that are used to specify the different payment methods.

*Update the p-classes by August 25.*  If you don’t take action on time, your payment methods from Klarna will stop working.

So what do you need to do when using our Klarna Gateway plugin (V2)?

P-classes are saved in a WordPress transient storage in the db. This transient is set to have the lifetime of 12 hours. When 12 hours have passed a new request is made to Klarnas servers and the p-classes are fetched again.

The P-classes transient is also deleted/flushed everytime the merchant saves the payment method settings.

So, if your p-classes doesn't update automatically you can navigate to the settings page for Klarna Part payment and re-save the setting. This will flush the p-classes and retrieve them again.
