According to a tweet posted by Alex Verdea this afternoon, GoDaddy is now allowing customers to use Klarna to purchase GoDaddy products and services. Klarna is buy now pay later (BNPL) financing service that has become very popular and more mainstream over the past couple of years.
You can see a screenshot of the BNPL offering in Alex’s tweet:

Alex asked Paul Nicks, President of the Domains division at GoDaddy, if this option will be expanded to the aftermarket. Paul replied, and said it would happen “soon:”

There are various types of financing and payment plan options available to aftermarket domain name buyers right now. If (or when) GoDaddy begins allowing customers to finance their purchase over time, it will likely be significant for customers who utilize the GoDaddy / Afternic network to sell domain names.
I am sure GoDaddy will share more details with customers when aftermarket domain name buyers can purchase domain names via Klarna BNPL or other financing options.
