Danske Bank to bring Apple Pay to Dankort users

Danske Bank customers will soon be able to pay with their Dankort card when they use Apple Pay.




Danske Bank has today announced an agreement with Nets that will bring Apple Pay to Dankort card holders.

Apple Pay is a secure and easy way to pay that gives our customers flexibility.

Once this has been implemented, Danske Bank customers will be able to pay with their Dankort card when they use Apple Pay, and retail outlets and web shops will be able to charge the amount to the Dankort part of a customer’s Visa/Dankort card.


The most important thing for us here is that our personal customers are able to make pay-ments easily, securely and inexpensively.

“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.


About Apple Pay

  • Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add a credit or debit card. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device.

  • Customers can use Apple Pay on their iPhone, iPad, and Mac to make faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web in Safari without having to create accounts or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. 

  • Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay.

    When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. In-stead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device.
