Technology giant, Apple’s payment service, ‘Apple Pay’, is available for customers in several banks in Norway from Wednesday.


Initially, payment services will be available in Norway for customers with accounts and Visa cards in Nordea Bank, Santander Bank and Sbanken (formerly Skandiabanken), said Norway’s chief executive at Visa, Jens Nes. Apple Pay will also be available to Nordea’s customers with Mastercards, said Inge Kjønnøy, Head of Mastercard Norway.
