​ The story of MobilePay
- and a few facts


​How it all started

Danske Bank created MobilePay to address the need for very simple money transfers.  The ambition was to make transferring money to friends and businesses as easy as it is to send a text message. 

On 7 May 2013, this ambition was realised with the launch of the MobilePay app. On that day alone, 25,000 people downloaded the app. After four months, there were 500,000 users, and three years after the launch, more than 3,5 million Danes had downloaded MobilePay. About 70% of users are customers at other banks than Danske Bank.​

MobilePay has been a great success in Denmark for three years and is gaining ground in Norway and Finland. As of today, Nordea Bank has joined MobilePay as a distribution partner in Denmark and Norway. This means that MobilePay gets even more resources to invest ambitiously for the benefit of users and businesses.

With the new model, other Nordic banks can also join MobilePay as distribution partners.
