Starting today, all customers of Danske Bank will be able to use Apple Pay and the many services the application provides including contactless payments at retail locations, in-app purchases, and online shopping. This includes cardholders of the 145-year old Danish bank located in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway, as stated in the announcing press release.
Both private and business customers of Danske bank will be able to use Apple's mobile payment application as long as they have a Visa or Mastercard bank card. The Apple Pay service can be activated via the Danske Mobile Banking app or through the Apple Wallet.
Katrine Mitens, head of Payments and New Ventures at Danske Bank, commented on the move:
"Today, we’re pleased to be adding Apple Pay to our broad offering of payment solutions. We’re looking forward to seeing how Danske Bank customers take to Apple Pay and how the market develops overall within this area."
Further information and terms and conditions concerning the use of Apple Pay with a Danske Bank account can be found on the European bank's official website (in Danish).
