Dutch banks roll out QR codes for iDeal mobile payments

Tuesday 20 December 2016 | 10:31 CET | News
The Dutch Payments Association announced the launch of QR codes for the online payment system iDeal are now available to all merchants, after a year of testing the new service. The system is seen as an alternative to card machines and allows merchants to generate a QR code that customers can scan with their smartphone in order to pay with iDeal. ING and Bunq have already added support for the system to their banking apps, so customers don't have to download the separate iDeal app. Other banks are expected to do the same.
