We are excited and very glad over this possibility together with Nordea. We see that the market is rapidly maturing, and more and more people want to use cashless solutions, both for safety and convenience. From the high number of our active sports and fitness customers, we see a desire to make both ordinary day-to-day activities and sports activities such as running, biking and golfing, for example, smoother and safer – avoiding the hassle of using cash or cellphones.
