Danske Bank has brought its MobilePay app and service to Norway, with apps available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
The app offers free person to person cash transfers between friends, and users do not have to be customers of Danske Bank, being able to add up to 3 debit cards to the system to draw from.
The app is already used by 2.5 million people in Denmark, and there is is also integrated with the Powatag payment system, which used QRcodes to turn any display surface into a retail location. MobilePay is currently accepted by 1 in 5 stores in Denmark.
“We will start the implementation of our point-of-sale features in October 2015. From early 2016, our Norwegian users will be able to use MobilePay at all Rema 1000 supermarkets and selected branches of 7/11 and Narvesen convenience stores,” said Sten Vidar Ernestussen, who is leading the Norwegian roll-out of MobilePay.
“For the first time, Norwegian consumers will be able to pay for items with their mobile phone, irrespective of who they bank with and which smartphone they have. Our app is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone,” he added.
