Checkout Plugins – Stripe for WooCommerce supports iDEAL as a payment method. This document will show you how to set up and use iDEAL with Stripe for your online store.
What Is iDEAL?
iDEAL is an online payment method that enables consumers to pay online through their own bank. Payments are done using the mobile banking app or the online banking environment provided by the user’s bank. This payment method is popular in the Netherlands.
iDEAL is based on direct online transfers from a user’s bank account to the merchant’s bank account. When paying with iDEAL, users will be required to authorize the payment.
This payment option needs to be integrated with the online store to enable users to complete purchases using iDEAL.
