Step by step

The by you requested amount -in this demo 100 guilders- is converted into the chosen currency based on the daily exchange rate.

After choosing the currency, the method can be selected. iDeal, creditcard, PayPal, bancontact, Sofort etc

Transaction costs are based on the chosen method and -in this demo- paid by your client. iDeal is one of the cheapest at 0.84 ANG, credit card payments one of the costlier due to the percentage charged by banks to process this payment. 

When clicking “Pay’ your client can pay the requested amount and after paying, you are notified instantly by e-mail.

Your 100 guilders are on your account immediately and are paid out on your local bank account next weeks Wednesday.

Redeeming Fun Miles is also possible, for this a Fun Miles partnership is required.

Soon, we will integrate a local wallet to make instant guilder payments possible!
