How to Configure Klarna v3 with Cloudflare WAF

The online payment provider Klarna requires validation callbacks with a 200 HTTP reply with the latest version (3) of their payment solution. If the validation callback fails, the error “Sorry, this purchase cannot be processed.” is displayed. 

The Klarna validation callback triggers a ruleset in the default setup of Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF). To solve this issue with Klarna v3 for WooCommerce, you need to add a custom Page Rule with Cloudflare.
