Extra card charges in Denmark


To pay by card or by cash in Denmark? That is the question …. and a bit of a far-fetched joke about what a prince in Kronoborg’s castle wondered in one of Shakespeare’s plays.

Before the 1st of July this year, Danish shop owners, hotels, restaurants etc. made a charge of 3.75% on card payments. It was a fee that covered traders’ expenses for the handling of cards, and was administered by the card payment firm, Teller.

The EU has now demanded that the fee only be taken on credit cards (not debit cards). But they don’t have any technical solutions for determining whether a card is a credit or debit card. It means that traders don’t have the right to make any charge at all, which in turn can mean that smaller businesses may stop accepting cards. They are in the process of adjustment and we’ll keep an eye on adaptions to the new EU rules.
