In Denmark payments are mostly handled with payment cards. Like almost no other country Danes own a payment card and are confident in using it online.

MobilePay has in the later years seen a substantial growth, but it is important to remember that a MobilePay Online transaction is in fact a card payment transaction.

Danish consumers are generally positive towards online shopping and year after year there is a significant growth in online shopping behaviour.

Included are non-subscription payments from Danish merchants using the QuickPay platform.
