Frequently asked questions

What is iDEAL?

iDEAL is the most widely used payment method in the Netherlands. At least 60% of Dutch shoppers use it to pay for their online purchases. It’s a trusted, secure and convenient way of paying online. Customers transfer money directly from their bank account, through the online banking product they’re familiar with. This guarantees a successful payment that can’t be reversed by the customer. The customer’s bank guarantees that the transaction is secure.

iDEAL is seamlessly integrated with the online banking products of the 10 largest Dutch consumer banks. Customers of these banks log in to their online banking environment to transfer payments. Participating banks are ABN AMRO, ASN Bank, bunq, Handelsbanken, ING, Knab, Rabobank, RegioBank, SNS Bank, Triodos Bank and Van Lanschot Bankiers.

The uses of this payment method are quickly increasing beyond e-commerce platforms. Online invoice services now send payment links alongside their invoices so they can be settled through iDEAL immediately. Charities have started implementing iDEAL to accept donations.

Since its introduction in 2005, over a billion payments have been made through iDEAL and over 100.000 webshops and other organisations have implemented it as a payment method.

How does iDEAL work?

Customers pay using their own online banking environment. The security of the transaction is guaranteed by the customer’s bank. Upon checking out, customers select the iDEAL payment method, followed by their bank. They’re then forwarded to the online banking environment of the bank and asked to log in. The amount to be transferred and further payment details are already filled in, the customer only needs to authorise the payment. When this is done, the bank immediately confirms the payment and the customer is returned to the webshop. The merchant can continue processing the order immediately, because payment is guaranteed.

What is an iDEAL QR code?

  1. What is an iDEAL QR code?
    An iDEAL QR code is a specific type of QR code used for making iDEAL payments. With this QR code, consumers can easily and securely make payments using their mobile phone or tablet. It provides a quick and efficient way to complete online purchases without the need to enter long strings of data.

  2. How does an iDEAL QR code work?

The iDEAL app recognizes the code and displays the payment details, after which the consumer can authorize the payment using their bank app.
