“We already offer our customers the option of paying with their Mastercard and the Visa part of their Visa/Dankort card when they use Apple Pay, but we want to give our customers as much flexibility as possible when it comes to how they choose to make payments. Therefore, it is a natu-ral step to now provide our customers with the option of paying with their Dankort card via Apple Pay. The most important thing for us here is that our personal customers are able to make pay-ments easily, securely and inexpensively,” explains Dennis Kristjansen, Head of Everyday Banking Individuals at Danske Bank.
The new agreement means that it will also be possible to pay with Apple Pay in retail outlets and web shops that otherwise only accept Dankort payments.
“We are seeing that our customers increasingly want to use mobile payment solutions, such as Apple Pay, and meeting the needs of our customers is a key area of focus for us. With this agree-ment, we ensure that those retail outlets and web shops that do not accept Visa and Mastercard are now able to accept Apple Pay from the many Danske Bank customers who have a Dankort or Visa/Dankort card,” added Dennis Kristjansen.
