What is iDEAL?
iDEAL allows consumers to make online purchases in a swift and secure way directly in the familiar online banking environment of their own bank. However, iDEAL is not a quality mark. The option to pay with iDEAL or the visibility of the logo says nothing about the reliability and service delivery by the store.To start using iDEAL, you don’t need to register, download any files or open an account. If you already have online banking with ABN AMRO, ASN Bank, Friesland Bank, ING, Knab, Rabobank, RegioBank, SNS Bank, Triodos Bank or Van Lanschot Bankiers, you can make payments using iDEAL right away. The transaction is completed swiftly and simply in the familiar online banking environment of your own bank – paying in a way you are already familiar with.
