“It is a forward-looking agreement concluded. It will make it easier for our customers to shop in our stores. At the same time, we can prepare for the next step, where we will combine the phone with the membership of the Coop, ” says CEO Jan Madsen, Coop.

Nets solution for payment terminals applies to smartphones with an active NFC function, and other smart phones that can be used to pay mobile for example using Bluetooth.
