Telepartner A/S Thursday announced that it has entered into an agreement with DANKORT which will allow Telepartner to accept on-line credit card payments on its [www.909.dk] Web site for the first time.
DANKORT, the Danish bank and credit card system, is the largest credit card system in Denmark with more than 2.6 million users. As a result of the agreement, Telepartner will begin accepting credit card payments immediately through its e-commerce Web site.
“Until now, it has been impossible to use the Danish credit card DANKORT as a means of payment on the Internet,” said Aldo Petersen, chief executive officer of Telepartner. “As one of the largest Scandinavian retailers of music over the Internet, we will be better able to service our customers as a result of this new agreement with DANKORT.”
According to Petersen, Telepartner has one of the most active Web sites with overnight distribution in all of Scandinavia.
“The DANKORT agreement will greatly simplify payment for CDs and music selections from our on-line music shop,” Petersen said. “When coupled with the overnight delivery services we introduced last year, I see even greater potential for e-commerce than ever before in this area.”
