Danish Electronic Payment Slip digitizes current paper-based billing

PBS reports that as of this week the Danish public can opt-in for digital billing. This means that rather than current conventional bills (to be typed over in e-banking applications) the digital payment order will already be placed in the e-banking application. Effectively a similar solution as the so-called Digital Bill concept of the Dutch banks.

If this turns out to be a succes, would there also be a case for not using direct debits (child of the 1950s batch processing era) any more?
