Readers report that Apple Pay has gone live with Nordea, Santander and Sbanken, with Tek.no confirming.
Initially, payment services will be available in Norway for customers with Visa cards from Nordea Bank, Santander Bank and Sbanken (formerly Skandiabanken), said Norwegian Visa CEO Jens Nes.
Apple Pay will also be available to Nordea’s customers with MasterCards, says Inge Kjønnøy, Head of MasterCard Norway.
Contactless payment is already common in Norway, so it should be possible to use Apple Pay in a wide range of stores, restaurants and other venues.
This brings the list of Apple Pay countries to 29, though the company has not yet made the two latest additions.
