Why did your order get canceled but your payment taken on Klarna?

Short Answer: If your order got canceled but your payment was taken on Klarna, the money is probably on authorization hold – not taken. The bank has control of the authorization hold. And it may take one week or longer for the hold to be removed. Or it could plainly be an error. 

Authorization holds are done by the bank when they do not know the final amount of the product you are buying. Once the company has finalized the amount, that part will be deducted and the hold will be removed.

But if you have canceled the order, then the authorization hold will stay that way for a while. Give it a week or two and then you can contact your bank. You can ask them to remove the hold because there is no need to pay Klarna now.

If it is not an authorization hold but a payment that was a mistake, then, you need to get on the phone right away and call Klarna’s customer service.
