Payment transaction

The banks arrange payments between Danes – both for the individual and for businesses. This is especially done by Dankort (the dominating Danish debit card), Betalingsservice (Danish direct debit service), online banking and checks.

While the use of checks for private payments is in decline, the number of electronic payments, for example through Dankort and online banking, is increasing.
