Dutch online payment method iDEAL has registered more than 2 billion online payments as of early November 2018. The first billion iDEAL payments took nearly eleven years to complete. The second billion required less than three years.
In 2018 consumers are expected to make more than half a billion iDEAL payments.
Food packages for food banks
To mark the milestone of 2 billion payments, Currence iDEAL, the brand and product owner of iDEAL, will donate several thousand food packages to food banks around the Netherlands. This will provide a hundred struggling families with a food package every week, for a whole year.
