Apple Pay Now Available to Danske Bank Customers

Danske Bank, the largest bank in Denmark, today announced it now offers Apple Pay.

Apple Pay is now available to all Danske Bank personal and business customers in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway, with support for both Visa and Mastercard cards. To set up a card with ‌Apple Pay‌, open the Wallet app on a compatible iPhone and tap the plus button in the top-right corner.


Once activated, Danske Bank cardholders can use their iPhone or Apple Watch to make purchases at stores that accept contactless payments, as well as on websites and in apps that accept ‌Apple Pay‌.

‌Apple Pay‌ launched in Denmark in October 2017, and with Danske Bank now on board, an additional 2.7 million customers now have access to the service in the Nordic region. ‌Apple Pay‌ will be available in more than 40 countries and territories by the end of 2019, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

(Thanks, Christian Schweizer and Poy!)

I'm a Dane living in the US.
Good for the Danes in Denmark. I just wish it was more accepted here in the US. I still can't use Apple Pay at the major grocery chains that I use (Kroger and HEB), Neither can I use it at the home improvement stores that I frequent (Lowe's and Home Depot) - and then there are the gas stations. About 75% of my purchases can still not be made using Apple Pay.

Awesome! For me nothing tops the convenience factor of paying with Apple Pay on an Apple Watch. Glad more people can do that now.

I see that Danske Bank also have enabled it in Norway, the more banks that support Apple Pay, the better it is. It will force the remaining banks to also support it in the long run, for Norway I'm looking at DNB and Sparebank1 as the slow-ones.
