Requirements

One shoppers from Netherlands can purchase using iDEAL. The billing country and the order country code has to be NL.

Supported currencies

  • EUR

Workflow

  1. Use the getIdealIssuerBanks method for retrieving information on the Avangate list of banks that support iDEAL payments. More details about this method here.
  2. Shoppers select iDEAL as payment option in the interface you provide them, and select their bank from the list.
  3. Create the order object. Use IDEAL as the type of the PaymentDetails object, and include ReturnURL and CancelURL. The BankCode parameter should be added based on the bank selected by the customer, from the array obtained after calling method getIdealIssuerBanks.
  4. Use the placeOrder method to send the data to Avangate.
  5. Once you place the order, Avangate logs it into the system. At this point in time, the status of the order is PENDING.
  6. Avangate returns an Order object as the output of the placeOrder method. 
  7. Use the PaymentMethod object to create a redirect URL for the shoppers, concatenating the values of the Href and avng8apitoken parameters. Here's an example of the redirect URL:
    https://api.avangate.com/4.0/scripts/ideal/authorize/?avng8apitoken=f56373d92ed6b153
    
  8. Customers are directed to the iDEAL payment page, where they have to confirm their payment details before finishing the ordering process.
  9. Shoppers are redirected to the RedirectURL from the Order information object. In case the payment fails, shoppers are redirected to the CancelURL.
