Besides paying with iDEAL in an online shop, you may also receive an iDEAL payment link from a company known to you. iDEAL payment links are very easy and secure to pay with iDEAL, as you are used to.
Payment link received from a company
Companies can send you a so-called payment link, for example via e-mail, SMS, WhatsApp or other online channels. This makes it very easy to pay your invoices with iDEAL. All you have to do is click on the link and approve the payment in your own bank's banking app.
You will only be sent an iDEAL payment link if you have agreed this with the company. So you will receive these requests only if you expect a bill, payment reminder, donation request or other payment request from this well-known company. For example, for a subscription, an advance for your energy company or a payment reminder.
You should, of course, be careful to make the payment securely. On our security page, you will find some tips for assessing these payment requests before paying with iDEAL.
