SF Anytime launches Vipps payments in Norway

8 oktober 2020 - Sist oppdatert 16 juni 2022

SF Studios' streaming service SF Anytime has had Swish as a payment method with great success since 2018. The number of transactions paid with Swish is steady at 85% compared to payment by credit and debit card and now the streaming service launches Vipps as a possible payment alternative in Norway.

-    "At SF Anytime we believe that it should be safe and frictionless to watch your favorite movies and TV series. To make the SF Anytime experience even better, we now - as the first streaming service - make Vipps available for our Norwegian customers to make the checkout process as seamless as possible. The launch has been a great success, and over-night 2/3 of our Norwegian customers pick VIPPS to complete the purchase at SF Anytime", says Ted Björling, Head of Customer Experience and Engineering at SF Anytime.

"Vipps is all about simplification, and we are really excited to also simplify the streaming experience with SF Anytime. The immediate success is proof that the time for CVC and long card numbers is long overdue", says Vegar Heir, Chief Commercial Officer at Vipps.
