Your new card

When you use a credit card responsibly, it’s a great way to manage your finances and shop safely – especially online.

How to get started with your new card

  • The geographical use of the new card is limited to Europe. Change security settings in Nordea's mobile bank or Netbank. A renewed card will retain the existing geographical limit.
  • The card is blocked from being used for online gambling. You can change the setting by calling Nordea Customer Service.
  • In case of card renewal, cut the old card into several parts so that the card's chip and magnetic stripe are destroyed. The card's PIN remains the same after renewal.

Pay conveniently with contactless payment

When paying with your credit card for the first time, slot the card in the payment terminal and enter your PIN. This will also activate the card's contactless payment feature. The combination card is activated through a purchase from the bank account and the credit card with a purchase from the card credit.

If you lose your card

If you detect any card purchases or cash withdrawals you do not recognize in your account transactions or on your credit card invoice, block your card and make a card complaint immediately. You can only make a card complaint about transactions that have been debited to the card.

Online payments with a credit card

Paying with a credit card has many benefits which provide security and flexibility for online payments in particular. You will not get the same security and flexibility if you pay by invoice.
