iDeal

Learn how to accept iDEAL payments.

iDEAL is the most used online banking method in the Netherlands, supported by all the major Dutch consumer banks. Nearly all customers in the Netherlands know iDEAL, and have used it at least once.

When a customer pays with iDEAL, they're presented with a list of issuing banks. After the shopper selects an issuing bank, they're redirected to the bank's website or mobile app to complete the payment.

Include in request:

  • merchantid: The merchant identification number.
  • orderid: The field orderid is optional and exclusively for the merchant's convenience.
  • amount: The amount field contains the transaction’s total amount. This is the amount that will be transmitted to the authorizing system.

  • payment_method: The payment method id - 5.
  • signature: The signature field contains a 40-figure hexadecimal value. This signature value is a checksum designed to protect the merchant account from unauthorized access.

Refunds

iDeal supports refunds and can be initiated only on a successful captured transaction.
The request will send a credit note to the authorization system after the customer has already been charged. The refund amount will be credited to the customer and the merchant’s account will be charged.

The refund can be done in two ways:

  • Through API integration
  • Through payabl. dashboard

If you have API integration, you can check more in our documentation Refund.
