Danske Bank customers can now pay with Dankort in Apple Pay

Danske Bank customers are now able to pay with the Dankort part of their Visa/Dankort card when they use Apple Pay. Apple Pay is a secure and easy way to pay that gives our customers flexibility.

“As a Danske Bank customer, you should be able to make payments easily, securely and inexpensively. That’s why we’re always striving to provide our customers with the best payment solutions on the market. An increasing number of people prefer to use mobile payment solutions, such as Apple Pay, so it’s a natural step that we’re adding the option of paying with the Dankort part of Visa/Dankort via Apple Pay,” explains Dennis Kristjansen, Head of Everyday Banking Individuals at Danske Bank.

The implementation of the Dankort card in Apple Pay means that it will now also be possible to pay with Apple Pay in retail outlets that otherwise only accept payments with the Dankort card.

For payments with a Visa/Dankort card made in retail outlets or on the internet in Denmark – both with a physical card and via Apple Pay – it is the individual retailer that decides whether the payment will, as a general rule, be made using the Dankort part or the Visa part of the card. Where it is technically possible, the customer can decide which part of their Visa/Dankort card they use when they make a payment.  

The new option of linking the Dankort part of a Visa/Dankort card to Apple Pay has several benefits for the consumer. For example, there is no 30-day spending limit of DKK 25,000, and it will usually be possible to see payments in Danske Mobile Banking and Danske eBanking the same day as they are made.

About Apple Pay

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay.

When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
