Klarna surveyed 24K+shoppers and analyzed 29MM+ to get a view of how consumers will spend this holiday season, providing actionable insights.

As a significant percentage of consumers plan to begin their holiday shopping early this year, brands should take note that this group plans to spend 16% more, on average, than those who start shopping later," said David Sykes, Head of North America, Klarna. "To entice these early birds, retailers should offer some of their best holiday promotions much sooner than usual, while keeping their eyes on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which are poised to remain the biggest buying days of the season.

"Also noteworthy; shoppers with the biggest budgets are twice as likely to seek out flexible payment options, like Klarna's interest-free Pay in 4 solution. Whether shoppers are purchasing in store or online, 80% are expecting a seamless experience with convenient ways to pay,” Sykes added.

The Numbers:

  • 34% of shoppers expect to spend more on gifts in 2021 than 2020.
  • 53% who are planning to increase their budgets will do so by $101-$500, per the survey.
  • 40% of US shoppers will start their holiday shopping earlier this year than they did last year. 22% have already begun, with another 22% planning to get started before Black Friday.
  • 56% of shoppers plan to do the bulk of their buying online during Black Friday. Klarna users (67%) are even more inclined to go digital.
  • Nearly 3X (+193%) shopped during Black Friday last year, compared to the average day in November 2020, surpassing Cyber Monday sales by 26%.
  • 62% of respondents plan to shop with big-box retailers, followed by department stores (37%) and malls (34%).
  • 71% of Gen Z and 69% of millennials say that they're interested in checking out livestream shopping events this season.
