Popular payment types in Netherlands

The Dutch are Europe’s outlier in terms of online payment preferences. Established in 2005, iDEAL is a bank transfer payment option similar to Giropay in Germany. Bank transfer is used in different places around the world, but not to the degree it’s used by the Dutch. The Netherlands has seen a more robust penetration than ever for its iDEAL online banking payments scheme with the Covid-19 pandemic pushing its popularity from an already majority share of 59% toward an unprecedented 68% of market share. Credit cards are second most popular at 23%, followed by debit cards at 15%, and PayPal at 7%.
