If you’re looking towards Scandinavia to grow your business, you will find that Scandinavians are more or less equally positive towards online shopping. But when it comes down to payment methods Denmark, Sweden and Norway have significantly different ways of how to pay when shopping online.

In Norway payment cards like Mastercard, Mastercard Debit and Visa are the most popular. But besides the usual, the three Scandinavian countries have their own national payment methods. In Denmark, they use MobilePay Online, in Sweden it’s Swish and Norway has Vipps. Vipps is a payment method through the Vipps app and it can be used both online and offline when shopping.

So even though Scandinavians have a similar online shopping behaviour, every country has its own payment system that you as a foreign business need to implement if you wish to do e-commerce in Scandinavia.

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