What Payment Methods Does IKEA Accept?

IKEA accepts several different methods of payment, both in-store and online, on the IKEA website

Does Ikea Take PayPal?

No, as of 2024, IKEA is not accepting PayPal either in-store or online.

After going through the checkout process myself, I found there is no option to pay using PayPal in the US, Australia, UK, and Canada.

Does IKEA Take Apple Pay & Google Pay?

Yes, IKEA does accept payments via Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay at most store locations.

Since most payment terminals at IKEA have NFC chips enabled, customers with smartphones can easily pay with their preferred payment method via Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Does IKEA Accept AfterPay, Zip Pay, Openpay, QuadPay, Or Any Other Provider?

Unfortunately, IKEA does not accept any buy now pay later platform as of 2024 in North America, Europe, or Australia.

This includes major platforms such as AfterPay, Zip Pay, Klarna, OpenPay, QuadPay, and any other buy now pay later platform.

Alternatively, IKEA has its own payment plans that vary from country to country, allowing customers to pay off their bills in installments.

If you have made your purchase at IKEA, you may also want to become familiar with how long their furniture lasts, whether or not IKEA accepts checks, and returning IKEA products without a receipt.


IKEA accepts several major contactless payment methods, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. Other major payment methods, such as MasterCard and American Express are also accepted at IKEA, although Afterpay, unfortunately, is not.

You can also pay for your IKEA shopping using your PayPal account when you shop online. Cash payments are currently not accepted.
