Payments in Norway 2017: What Consumers Want

Summary
Norway’s strong card and payment industry is the result of a robust economy, an efficient domestic debit card scheme (BankAxept), and an increasing consumer appetite for credit. The average number of monthly card transactions and the average annual spend per card is higher in Norway than in more developed markets such as the US, the UK, France, Germany, and Australia. Electronic payments have gained ground during the last 10 years, as the government has invested substantially in building long-term infrastructure for cashless transactions.

BankAxept operates on a no interchange fee model and has a strong acceptance network. However, BankAxept cards cannot be used for online shopping or international transactions. This has led to growth in the use of international schemes such as Visa and Mastercard. Payment cards are thus co-badged with international scheme providers.

E-commerce posted a review-period (2013-17e) CAGR of 14.9%. Norwegian consumers are happy to buy little and often online. Key drivers include a wider selection of goods available than in-store, easy to use online websites, and no duty charged on foreign purchases under NOK350. Conventional payment instruments, including payment cards and credit transfers, remain the preferred payment method among Norwegian consumers.

A growing preference for cashless transactions coupled with high smartphone penetration has led to a rise in the demand for mobile payments. Alipay launched its operations in Norway in September 2017. The country’s first mobile peer-to-peer (P2P) payment solution, Vipps, was launched by DNB in May 2015. More than 100 banks now support this solution, which is used by over 2 million users.
