Payment method iDEAL in your webshop

In The Netherlands, iDEAL has been the most popular online payment method for online shoppers and in physical shops for years.

PAY. is an acquirer of iDEAL

A webshop with iDEAL gives your customers the opportunity to pay quickly and securely. Via PAY. paying with iDEAL is even faster: since February 15th, 2018, PAY. has acquired its own iDEAL acquirer license. Having an acquirer license makes us less dependent on third parties. It also leads to a more stable online payment system and a quicker processing time when it comes to iDEAL payments.
