Landsbankinn's new card app allows you to pay with your phone
Landsbankinn’s card app - Kort - can be downloaded from Google Play Store. The app is initially only available for Androids. Mobiles with iOS operating systems will be added as soon as Apple unlocks mobile payments for Iceland.
Kortaapp Landsbankans – Kort – er aðgengilegt í Google Play Store. Fyrst um sinn verður appið aðeins í boði fyrir farsíma með Android-stýrikerfi. Farsímum með IOS-stýrikerfi verður bætt við um leið og Apple opnar fyrir greiðslur með farsímum á Íslandi.
The app is developed by Visa and has already been in use in the US and other countries for some time. Landsbankinn is the first Icelandic bank to offer this service and among the first European banks to do so.
Lilja B. Einarsdóttir, CEO of Landsbankinn: “The new card app is a quick and secure way to make payment. We encourage people to become Landsbankinn customers through the app and try out not just the app but also the numerous other innovations we’ve launched recently.”
Testing is expected to be completed next week. During testing, some card readers may not accept payment using the app and in some cases they will only authorise payments under ISK 5000. A new update will be released in coming days, removing the maximum amount limit completely. All comments concerning the app can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org@landsbankinn.is.
