iDEAL is an electronic payment system, used widely in the Netherlands, which allows customers to buy on the internet using direct online transfers from their bank accounts.

iDEAL is the most popular payment method in the Netherlands, covering over 50% of all payment transactions. It is operated by the Dutch company Currence, which also owns PIN and Chipknip and is supported by basically all major banks in the country – ABN AMRO, ASN Bank, bunq, Friesland Bank, ING Bank, Knab, Rabobank, RegioBank, SNS Bank, Triodos Bank and Van Lanschot.

iDEAL is generally free of charge for customers, who are purchasing goods or services on the internet, although web shops are allowed to add an extra fee for the service. That fee, however, should be announced before the actual payment takes place and most businesses actually does not impose any extra charge for their customers.

The only exception with iDEAL is when the payment is made from consumer-to-consumer, using iDEAL QR codes. Than the fee is fixed at 30 euro cents for every payment request and the two counterparts should decide, who will pay that extra charge.

The only drawback with iDEAL is that you can not request a chargeback. Here is why – although the payment method uses the online banking interface and the safety measures of the supporting bank, technically all iDEAL transactions are cash payments between clients and merchants, to which the bank is not a party and is offering no insurance. For that reason, if a merchant fails to deliver, the payment can not be reversed.
