How to get started with your new card

Your new card is ready to use as soon as you receive it. When you make your first purchase, enter your PIN in the payment terminal to activate contactless payments. You can also add your card to mobile payment apps, such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.

If your card is totally new:

  • You can see your new card’s PIN in Nordea Mobile or Netbank.
  • The default usage area for your new card is Europe. You can edit the usage area in Nordea Mobile or Netbank.

If your new card replaces an old one:

  • Your PIN remains the same as in your old card.
  • The renewed card has the same security settings as your old card.
  • Cut your old card in several pieces so that the chip and magnetic stripe can no longer be used.
