Report Highlights

  • Norges Bank has been steadily increasing interest rates to curb inflation, revising its policy rate to 4.5% in February 2024, up from 2.75% in January 2023. As a result, banks and card issuers are increasing interest rates on consumer lending products. Such moves will directly impact the credit card market, leading to reduced spending via these cards.
  • In May 2023, biometric payment services provider IDEX Biometrics partnered with payment services provider STMicroelectronics to launch payment cards integrated with STPay-Topaz-Bio biometric payment technology. The cards are integrated with an IDEX Biometric system on-chip fingerprint sensor, with card holders' fingerprint data stored within the card. To make a payment, card holders place their finger on the card sensor, then tap the card on the contactless reader. Biometric authentication replaces the need to enter a PIN, enabling card holders to make payments of any amount (unlike traditional contactless payment cards).
  • Growth in POS terminal adoption is supported by the availability of low-cost mobile POS solutions. The growing payment card market has attracted new entrants to the Norwegian mobile POS space. SumUp offers its mobile card readers in Norway. These readers enable merchants to accept all types of payments, including contactless, chip and PIN, Google Pay, and Apple Pay. Similarly, in June 2022, Danish fintech Vibrant launched mobile-based POS solutions for SMEs in five European countries, including Norway.
