If you’re fundraising in Europe or Singapore, you can now use Fundraise Up to accept donations from Dutch donors using iDEAL, a popular payment method in the Netherlands.

iDEAL enables donors to give online using their bank credentials. All major Dutch banks support iDEAL, making it the most popular online payment method in the Netherlands. In fact, 57% of online transactions within the country are completed using iDEAL.

While iDEAL is broadly supported, we’ve specifically enabled it for charities operating in 23 European countries and Singapore. These are countries where iDEAL is most likely to be selected by donors at checkout. For charities, this approach balances providing a breadth of donation options with optimizations around conversion.

How to enable iDEAL

Already using Fundraise Up? Check the feature documentation for iDEAL to confirm that it’s available in your country and then head to Settings > Payment options > iDEAL in your account.

And if you’re not yet using the platform, get started by talking to our sales team.
