SoftPay, BankAxept, Tap-to-phone, Norway, FinTechSoftpay has announced that it now accepts BankAxept, a premier card scheme in Norway, as part of its advanced payment solutions. It is the first company to offer a tap-to-phone solution that accepts BankAxept ensuring fast and secure transactions for both merchants and customers.

With Softpay, merchants can use any Android device to accept BankAxept cards in-store, at pop-up locations, or for deliveries, providing mobility and reducing transaction costs.

Halvor Kaafjeld, head of Softpay in Norway said, “Many of the Norwegian cash register systems are already integrated with Softpay so that the user site can easily get started with running both cash register and payment applications on the same device. Not surprisingly, we experience great demand for BankAxept, which is a very cost-effective, secure and fast payment method.”

Softpay has been used successfully by small merchants like local hairdressers or restaurants and by enterprise and global merchants like fashion, health and beauty, and sports retailers.

Its platform supports various acquirers, card schemes, and digital wallets, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. This ensures that businesses can easily meet customers’ payment preferences, utilizing tap-to-phone technology that converts any Android device into a contactless payment terminal with a PIN.

BankAxept is integral to the Norwegian economy, facilitating a significant portion of in-store transactions with its cost-effective and widely accepted payment system. The integration with Softpay allows merchants across Norway to access fast, secure, and versatile payment options, enhancing the customer experience.

“We are very content that BankAxept is available as an app solution. It’s cheaper and simpler to get started for smaller businesses, and it provides flexibility for businesses that have peak periods where more selling points can be added in no time. We believe the combination of traditional terminals and multiple mobile selling points will be common in the future,” said Anita Frantzen, head of physical cards at BankAxept.
