The Danish cards and payments industry is well-developed, and its consumers are prolific users of payment cards. The country has the highest frequency of use in the world, with 210 transactions per card in 2017. As cash use continues to decline, Denmark is increasing its efforts to become a cashless society, backed by government support promoting electronic payments. Danish consumers are very comfortable with payment cards and mobile phones, with Dankort the most commonly used card scheme in the country and MobilePay leading the way in the peer-to-peer (P2P) payment space. With preference for mobile proximity and contactless payments gradually growing among Danish consumers there is an opportunity for providers to emphasize their advantages over traditional payment tools in order to boost interest and increase adoption.
