iDEAL payment gateway

The most preferred online payment method by Dutch shoppers

iDEAL payments for webshops and ecommerce platforms


iDEAL is the preferred secure online payments method for Dutch online shoppers. As a customer, you would have to have or create an account at the bank of your choice. iDEAL is a convenient payment option, which is more modern than for instance, money transactions in-store, customer invoice processes, or having to pay with a card. Bank or money transfers / paying with cash now seem dated as approximately 60% of all online payments in the Netherlands are handled by and through this payment method. This highlights the fact that a large portion of the Dutch population with standard accounts choose to pay using this method. Always know what you pay with iDEAL: this payment method ensures a direct payment without processing time; it is fast, it is real-time, reliable and secure. Thanks to our iDEAL plugins, we can offer iDEAL as one of our many alternative payment methods. In addition, this payment method can be easily connected to your webshop's checkout stage. While the Netherlands is used to the ' all major cards accepted ' way of commerce, iDEAL is still proves to be highly preferred.


iDEAL is a popular payment method (also considered as a payment service, a payment processor, or a payment solution) and it is fully integrated with the consumers' account or online bank environment. It works like a direct debit / debit card and there are several Dutch banks and bank accounts that support iDEAL payments (e.g. ABN AMRO, ASN Bank, bunq, ING, Knab, Rabobank, SNS Bank, Triodos Bank, RegioBank, Handelsbanken, Moneyou and Van Lanschot Bankiers). Therefore, iDEAL is not only used as an online payment solution in the e-commerce industry. In fact, it is being used more and more to accept donations for charities and receive online payments for online invoicing. iDEAL was first introduced in the market in 2005. Since then, it has been set-up and implemented in more than 100.000 webshops and used to process over one billion transactions.

The iDEAL payment process for webshops using MultiSafepay

After initiating a payment, your customers pay and choose iDEAL as their online payment method. Your customers, upon checkout, are then redirected to their banking environment. There, they only need to check the charge for their own purchase and confirm the payment.

After a customer confirms the payment, the status of the transaction is directly updated to “completed” in your MultiSafepay Control. It is, of course, also possible to receive a payment confirmation from MultiSafepay by email. Through such a payment system, you will immediately see the transaction amount added to your balance in your MultiSafepay merchant account. Then, you can process the order as an entrepreneur.
