(Reuters) - Sweden's Klarna on Wednesday partnered with Uber Technologies to offer its payment services across the company's ridesharing and food delivery platforms in a few markets, including the United States.

Uber said last year that it would accept more payment options on its food delivery platform and roll out an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered assistant to help users find deals.

Payments giant Stripe has also tied-up with the ride-sharing company to offer its services.
