Klarna Docs - Update the Klarna Payments session

Update the Klarna Payments session

You could update the Klarna Payments session with new details, in case something in the order has been changed and the checkout reloaded. Including if the consumer adds a new item to the cart or if consumer details are updated.

Updating a session is done by making a server-side POST call to update session using the same payload structure as when creating the session in the first place.

Best Practice: For the effects of the update to be shown, you must also update the client separately through doing a new load-call.

This could also be achieved by only doing a client-side load-call, with the updated details.
