With iDEAL you can make online payments in a reliable, secure and easy way. Payments are done using the mobile banking app or the online banking environment of your own bank. iDEAL is a direct online transfer from your bank account to the bank account of an entrepreneur.
Our online demo shows how an iDEAL payment through your own bank works. Step-by-step: from shopping cart to payment confirmation. In just a few clicks you will experience how easy this is!
Please note: The iDEAL payment description always includes the name of the organisation you paid. However, it is possible that customers do not recognize the name of the beneficiary because some organisations (web shop or other online organisations) outsource the collection of payments to third parties. These third parties are known as Collecting Payment Service Providers (CPSP). In that case, it will be the name of the CPSP that is listed first on your bank statement. This does not affect you. The CPSP will ensure that the right party receives your payment.
iDEAL offers some advantages over other online payment methods:
- You do not need to register or enroll for the service. You can directly use iDEAL if you are a customer of one of the participating banks;
- iDEAL is secure, because you make your payment in the environment of your own bank;
- iDEAL is easy, because all payment details are pre-filled automatically and you instantly know if your payment succeeded or not;
- You keep control of your balance; the iDEAL payment is instantly visible on your bank account statement.
