With its chamber of commerce proposing to make all money transactions electronic, Denmark is a leader in the world's shift towards cashless societies with approximately 80 percent adoption of non-cash payments. The country is also home to one of the world's most progressive and widely adopted mobile payment schemes. MobilePay, created by Danske Bank, is installed in more than 90 percent of Danish consumer smartphones, and is only surpassed by Facebook and Messenger in app acceptance.

By upgrading to Verifone, Dagrofa and REMA 1000 will be playing a significant role in driving consumer adoption for mobile payment in the country, as it is ready for future mobile payment options such as plans by Dankort, the country's national debit card, to enable payments through consumer mobile devices.

We want to make it even easier for our customers to make digital payments. Verifone has all the necessary functionality and provides an open and very straightforward solution at the cash register. Combining every type of payment in the same device makes life easier for both customers and our employees. Our goal is to deliver excellent experiences related to food, and Verifone's solution will help us deliver on this goal," says CEO Per Thau from Dagrofa.
