APPLYING FOR IDEAL: HOW DOES IT WORK?
There are two ways you can apply for iDeal. You can go to your bank, or you can turn to Ingenico ePayments, your Payment Service Provider. We will explain the differences below.
Applying for iDeal with your bank
Applying for iDeal with your bank sounds logical, because your payments come in through your bank account. After you have applied, your bank will make sure you can offer your customers payment via iDeal. Usually, however, your bank does not have the technical knowledge or skills to help you implement iDeal on your website. This means you will have to contact another party, such as your web builder.
Applying for iDeal with a Payment Provider
Another option is to apply for iDeal with Ingenico ePayments, your Payment Service Provider. With us, you can settle the contracts for iDeal and every other payment solution. Naturally, we will always make sure every payment is rerouted to your bank account as soon as possible.
