General

To perform an iDEAL payment, the consumer must also select their bank. This issuing bank selection can be done by the merchant, or in the payment gateway. If you wish to store the consumer’s issuing bank, you can include an issuer selection in the checkout process and pass it in the payment request. Otherwise, if the issuer is not included in the payment request, the gateway will show an issuer selection. When the issuer is known, the consumer is redirected to the issuing bank where they will be asked to verify their identity and confirm the payment. The status of the payment is then immediately known (unless an error occurs) and the consumer is redirected back to the merchant with the payment status.

Issuing banks The issuing banks are the banks where a customer needs to have abank account to be able to use iDEAL. The current list of supported issuing banks (and their BIC code) is:

  • ABN AMRO (ABNANL2A)
  • ASN Bank (ASNBNL21)
  • ING (INGBNL2A)
  • Rabobank (RABONL2U)
  • SNS Bank (SNSBNL2A)
  • SNS Regio Bank (RBRBNL21)
  • Triodos Bank (TRIONL2U)
  • Van Lanschot (FVLBNL22)
  • Knab (KNABNL2H)
  • Bunq (BUNQNL2A)
  • Moneyou (MOYONL21)
  • Handelsbanken (HANDNL2A)

Servicecodes and actions

For iDEAL collecting , use the service code ideal. For iDEAL processing , use the service code idealprocessing

The iDEAL service supports the following actions: Pay, Refund. They can be used with channel 'Web'.

Recurring payments

It is also possible to use an iDEAL transaction as a reference transaction for recurring SEPA Direct Debit transactions. To do this, add the basic parameter "StartRecurrent" with value "True" to your iDEAL API request. Once successful, you can perform a recurring SEPA direct debit transaction. Please see the SEPA Direct Debit section for an explanation of the "PayRecurrent" request.

Pay

The default action for iDEAL is Pay. This action requires as input the issuing bank of the consumer. Upon receiving this input, the consumer will be redirected to the issuing bank for verification and confirmation of the payment. An iDEAL payment has a lifetime of 15 minutes; this means that as soon as the consumer is redirected to the issuer, the payment must be completed within 15 minutes or it will expire. In the event that the consumer irregularly ends the payment process (for example by closing the browser window before returning to the webshop), the payment status will be retrieved from the acquirer as soon as the 15 minute lifespan is expired and the merchant webshop is updated via a push response. It is therefore recommended to enable the push response in the Payment Plaza when implementing iDEAL. A successful payment will include the BIC, the IBAN, the beneficiary of the bank account from which the payment was made and the name of the selected issuer.
