Swedbank, one of the largest banks in Sweden, has decided to close down its proprietary mobile payment solution Bart and this just half a year after launch. One reason is said to be lower number of users than expectations.
According to Swedbank, the service has about 20,000 registred users. How much Swedbank has invested in the Bart project is not disclosed.
In June 2013 Swedbank announced that the Bart service, who works with the help of QR codes photographed by cameras mounted next to the cash register, was installed in all of Axfood grocery stores.
