Most of Europe faces a lack of options when it comes to mobile credit card processing apps, and Denmark is no exception. In fact, it appears that Danish merchants’ only established option for a smartphone credit card reader is the Sweden-based company iZettle. Nordic payment processor Nets Group has promised some kind of Danish mobile payment partnership with JCB to come in fall 2016, but this product has yet to materialize and may in fact be oriented toward phone-to-terminal payments (like Danske Bank’s MobilePay) rather than chip card payments. In any case, the mobile credit card processing market in Denmark is relatively underdeveloped compared to the U.S. and UK, where Square and its numerous clones are available.
In a thin market like this, merchants may find it hard to assess whether or not to acquire a mobile card reader. That’s why we’ve compiled the following list of the best Danish mobile credit card processing apps. All apps on this list offer low-cost, low-commitment contract terms and have received positive reviews for their customer support. Merchants are encouraged to visit each company’s website to independently compare pricing and fees before signing up for service.
