- Contactless technology in Norway is very much in a developmental stage, with only DNB Bank, Danske Bank and Handelsbanken offering contactless cards. To increase uptake, banks are attempting to differentiate their products by introducing new features. In 2016, Danske Bank rolled out its MasterCard-branded contactless cards featuring integrated fingerprint sensors in association with the Norway-based fingerprint authentication technology provider Zwipe. It is the world's first fingerprint-activated contactless card, combining biometric authentication with contactless technology. In June 2016, the domestic debit network BankAxept partnered with the Canadian debit network Interac to accelerate the rollout of near field communication (NFC) mobile payment solutions.
- The uptake of alternative payments among Norwegian consumers is gaining traction due to the emergence of a number of payment options. Seqr was launched in January 2013, and was followed by MeaWallet in October 2014. In October 2015, SpareBank 1 acquired mCash. At the time of its acquisition, mCash had 100,000 users and 600 stores accepting the mCash service. To increase the uptake of its mobile payments, Danske Bank launched MobilePay in September 2015. The bank partnered with 100 retail outlets in Norway in October 2015. In 2016, it partnered with Rema 1000 – a supermarket chain – allowing users to use service stores in Norway.
- To minimize cash handling costs, banks in Norway are slowly adapting their branches into cashless locations. In 2014, 64 branches of DNB Bank were made cashless. Similarly, Nordea Bank stopped cash handling services at all of its branches in October 2015. This initiative is anticipated to accelerate the shift towards electronic payments.
