Jari Annala, a chairman at S-Bank, noted that first of all MobilePay aims to reshape the payment infrastructure of grocery stores serviced by S Group in particular. At further stages MobilePay and S-Bank will be expanding the list of participating merchants and stores to include ABC stations and restaurants.

MobilePay has gained high popularity among consumers in the market of Denmark but failed to achieve the same in Norway given tough competition staged by Vipps.
