Vipps and Nets have announced an agreement to increase the number of payment options and simplify invoice and bill payments in Norway.

Rune Garborg, CEO of Vipps, said: “We believe that this agreement will contribute to digitising all paper and email-based invoices in Norway. In the longer term, our ambition is to make the physical invoice obsolete. This partnership will create cost-savings for both corporates and consumers.”

Nets is the provider of invoicing solution eFaktura. Despite the differences to the front-end of the solution, the flow of digital invoices in the back-end will remain unchanged. This mean that banks, corporates and suppliers will not have to update their systems and integrations when implementing the solution.
