iDEAL - Online Payments through your own bank
iDEAL is by far the most widely accepted payment method among Dutch online merchants; currently more than 90,000 online stores and other parties, both in the Netherlands and abroad, accept iDEAL. Due to a growing interest in iDEAL abroad, Dutch customers can increasingly pay with iDEAL in foreign webshops. The use of iDEAL outside the traditional e-commerce area is also increasing, for purposes including donations to charities and paying bills and fines. 

iDEAL is currently generating over 140 million payments per annum, and as a result has given a boost to the turnover of webshops. A new milestone has been reached in 2013. Thanks to a considerable increase in the number of iDEAL payments, the magical threshold of half a billion iDEAL payments was passed at the end of November 2013 since iDEAL was introduced in 2005. 

With the arrival of iDEAL mobile in 2013, mobile shopping is set to become even more user-friendly. Currence expects it will give an added boost to mobile shopping. This will contribute to the continued growth in the number of iDEAL payments in 2014.
