Danish consumer council reports Apple Pay to competition authority

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 14:54 CET | News
Danish consumer council Taenk said it is reporting Apple Pay to the Competition and Consumer Authority, saying the mobile payments service breaches competition regulations and EU rules, and pushes up shop prices. It said that when Danish customers link their Visa/Dankort banking card to Apple Pay, Apple deducts the payment from the Visa portion of their card rather than from Dankort, without customer consent. Taenk said that under interbank fee arrangements, it should be up to the consumer.
