Current forms of payment:

Debit card

Maximum amount valid when paying by debit card is usually
100 000 NOK per payment, but this is a matter between the customer and his/her issuing bank.  

Credit card

Maximum amount of payment by credit card is a matter between the customer and the card company. If you choose to pay by credit card you must pay a fee to the credit card company. Credit card fee applies for amounts over 2000 NOK. Credit card fee is from 0.4 to 2.2 percent of the transaction amount depending on the type of credit card.

Bank draft

If you are using a bank draft this has to be made out to the local custom region. The amount paid can not exceed the amount due as stated on the invoice.

Payments at the bank/post office or online

Bank/post office

The receipt has to have a dated bank signature/stamp that validates the payment. The receipt has to confirm that the payment has been debited/withdrawn from the customer's bank account.

Online payments

When the excise duty is paid in the electronic payment system, you have to use the KID number listed on the invoice. A valid receipt requires a sticker in addition to the KID number. Alternatively the receipt has to have a stamp/signature from the bank in addition to the KID number, total amount due, payment date, the customer's bank account number and the Norwegian customs bank account number.
