The most popular payment method in the Netherlands.

Engage the Dutch market through iDEAL

iDEAL is the staple for online payments in the Netherlands, as it's currently responsible for more than 60% of online payments in the Netherlands. iDEAL has evolved from exclusively being an ecommerce solution, to a payment platform that functions to also pay energy bills, make donations to charities, and even pay taxes.

iDEAL links all major Dutch retail banks through their online, mobile and QR solutions. The payment process with iDEAL is fast, reliable, processed in real-time and carried out through the customer's own banking environment. 

Onward and upward

Throughout the Netherlands, over 130.000 webshops now offer iDEAL as a payment method, with more than 80 million iDEAL payments taking place every month.
Their growth is staggering, as 2020 saw iDEAL payments increase by a whopping 33.5% as opposed to the previous year.
