Settlement Reports explain in detail all payments made by Klarna to you and help you to reconcile your accounts. Each Settlement Report can be linked to a payout by using the unique payment reference, which appears on your bank account statement. Settlement Reports are available in CSV, PDF or JSON format and can be accessed in three different ways - using Klarna’s Merchant Portal, using the Settlements API or by using the Klarna-SFTP.
Using the Merchant Portal to access your Settlement Reports is the simplest method of managing them, as no technical setup or configuration is needed. The Merchant Portal allows for filtering by dates and currency and simple downloads of Settlement Reports for desired transactions.
For each payout, a settlement report is created and shown in the table at the bottom. You'll find the options to download the CSV and PDF report from the table or to click on the payment reference for the transactional details.
The Settlements API allows for managing and gathering Settlement Reports using our predefined API. It requires technical configuration but is a preferred method to manage larger volumes of Settlement Reports. Click here for detailed information about the Settlements API.
