Nordea 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 Nordea debit or credit card and a smartphone or a smartwatch or some other smart device. 

If you activate the Nordea Wallet mobile app, keeping track of your card transactions and spending will be easy.
