How to pay in Sweden? Cash or Credit Card?

As Sweden don’t have Euro, in Sweden you pay with the Swedish currency Svenska Kronor, Swedish Crowns or SEK. This is a country where payment relies heavily on card payment. Most of stores, restaurants etc accept most of available credit cards with a few exceptions as Diner’s Club. Many stores and restaurants only accept credit card. There are also some small shops and vendors that do not accept credit cards. They usually accept both cash and using the common mobile phone payment system Swish. For being able to use Swish, you need to have a Swedish bank account and a Swedish personal code number.

So, to sum it up, having a card to pay with is an absolutely necessity in Sweden. Some small change in SEK is also good to carry with you, but no larger sums are needed.
