Paymentwall, an all-new digital solution has made it easier for end-customers to access and operate banking facilities throughout the country’s leading banks. First off the block were Nordea Bank, SEB, Handelsbanken and Swedbank who have already put the infrastructure up and running.

The facility enables transactions for the customer through four simple steps –

  1. Select the bank.
  2. Login to online banking.
