iDEAL: Safe payments
|Since its introduction in 2005, iDEAL has proven itself as the standard in online payments in The Netherlands. More than a quarter of a billion payments were processed already. iDEAL is in fact a payment that is handled via the online banking software of the consumer's bank. It is supported by all major banks in The Netherlands.
Not only is iDEAL the best accepted and valued method of payment, for you as a merchant payments are always guaranteed. The payment is comparable to a bankwire which cannot be charged back and is cleared instananeously.
With TargetPay you can set up iDEAL payments for your website easily. Acting as a "Payment Service Provider" we aggregate payments for a large number of webstores. With these economies of scale we have bargained better prices at the processing banks than individual webstores.
Furthermore, TargetPay has more to offer than only iDEAL. We have a complete offering with many iDEAL-like and other payment methods like creditcards and pre-paid cards. Did you know that Belgium and Germany also have payment solutions comparable to iDEAL? Please take a look at Mister Cash and DirectEbanking respectively.
