Can I use the iDEAL payment to have my customers sign an eMandate?

An iDEAL payment is executed via a SEPA Credit Transfer. One of it characteristics of this payment instrument is that every payment must be authorized by the consumer individually. It is not possible to perform multiple, repeated payments with one iDEAL transaction.

Alternatively, you can use the European Direct Debit for repeated payments. In accordance with the European regulations only a written authorization or an eMandate (such as Incassomachtigen) are legitimate mandates to do Direct Debits. Once you have obtained a mandate, the Direct Debits are initiated by you, as the payee without prior activity of the payer. To protect the payer, the payment is not guaranteed. He or she has the right, by law, to reverse the payment within 8 weeks.
