Payments Relating to Online Shopping - Part 1

Online shopping in Denmark has increased significantly in recent years. Secure and efficient payment is essential in order to exploit fully the advantages of online shopping. In Denmark, most online purchases are paid for with the national debit card, the Dankort. This is an easy and fast payment method, as the consumers only have to enter the information stated on the card. However, this also heightens the risk of loss due to fraudulent use of the payer's identity. The extent of fraudulent use of the Dankort for online payments is currently modest, but it should be subject to ongoing assessment whether the security requirements should be increased.
