Google Pay arrives in Scandinavia

Yordan, 30 October 2018

Google Pay is a payment method for Android devices with NFC in over 20 countries that allows you to leave your credit and debit cards at home. Today the number of markets it's offered in grew by four after banks in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark enabled the service for its customers.

Google Pay is already rolling out to users

Although we have four more countries, the initial number of banks and platforms in Scandinavia is pretty basic. Nordea and Revolut are two financial services available in all new markets, and they are accompanied by Jyske Bank in Denmark, Edenred in Finland, Monobank, Storebrand, Sparebanken Sør in Norway, and Länsförsäkringar Bank, Sodexo Pass in Sweden.

Some users already report the service is up and available, but you have to make sure your type of card is supported at Google’s Support page in the Source link below.
