iDEAL issuing licencees
An issuer is a consumer bank and enables its account holders (consumers) to pay with iDEAL through their own internet or mobile banking environment. The issuer will transfer the successful iDEAL payments to the acquirer or CPSP (Payment Service Providers of the entrepreneur). The acquirers and CPSPs ensure that the entrepreneur receives the iDEAL funds. If an issuer wishes to fulfill a role in the iDEAL payment system, it must demonstrate by a self-assessment that they comply with the rules set by Currence iDEAL B.V. In addition, the issuer must be registered as a payment service provider in the licence register of the relevant European regulator that is maintained by order of the government (e.g. De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB)). The benefit of the publication is that it is clear to everyone what parties can participate in the iDEAL payment system.
Currence publishes the names of companies which have obtained a licence for iDEAL.
