Nordea Visa Debit

With Nordea Visa Debit you can withdraw cash and pay for purchases in Finland and abroad. Nordea Visa Debit includes the contactless payment feature which allows you to pay for purchases under 50 euros quickly without having to enter your PIN.

Nordea Debit – handier than cash

The contactless payment feature makes paying for purchases under 50 euros quick and easy, as you simply hold your card close to the payment terminal. 

You can start making smart payments if you have a smartphone, smartwatch or some other smart device in addition to your card.

Nordea Debit in brief

  • Purchases are debited from your bank account and the balance of your bank account is checked whenever you make a purchase. An authorisation hold is placed on your account for your cash withdrawals and purchases until the debiting date, for a maximum of 10 days. 
  • You can pay your purchases of less than 50 euros securely, without having to touch the payment terminal. 
  • When you enable online payments with your card, you can also shop safely online. 
  • You can withdraw cash in Finland and abroad at any ATM with the Visa logo.
