Nordea Bank customers are hit by a planned break in service during Sunday while the company tests its data systems in case of emergencies.

In practice it means that from 04:00 until 10:30 card services are offline: it won’t be possible to take out cash at ATMs or stores, make card payment, or use Apple Pay, Google Pay, Fitbit or Garmin payments.

And from 04:00 until 15:00 a longer list of services will be offline including making bill payments at ATMS; online Netbank services; mobilebanking; using Nordea’s code card for identification online; E-payments; Nordea Wallet and the Siirto mobile pay service.

The service break also affects Nordea Finance payment cards like Stockmann Mastercard, Finnair Plus Mastercard and TUOHI Mastercard – and the company’s customer service telephone lines for banking are out of action.
