iDEAL Drop-in integration

Add iDEAL to an your existing iOS Drop-in integration.

Our iOS Drop-in renders iDEAL in your payment form, and redirects the shopper to their selected bank's website or app to complete the payment.

When making an iDEAL payment, you additionally need to:

Before you begin

This page explains how to add iDEAL to your existing iOS Drop-in integration. The iOS Drop-in integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Drop-in integration guide.

Before starting your iDEAL integration:

  1. Make sure that you have set up your back end implementation, and added Drop-in to your payment form.
  2. Add iDEAL in your test Customer Area.

Show iDEAL in your payment form

Drop-in uses the countryCode and the amount.currency from your /paymentMethods request to show the available payment methods to your shopper.

To show iDEAL in your payment form, you need to specify in your /paymentMethods request:

After the shopper selects a payment method and provides payment details, Drop-in invokes the didSubmit method which contains data.paymentMethod. Pass data.paymentMethod to your server and make a payment request.

Make a payment

When the shopper proceeds to pay, Drop-in invokes the didSubmit method which contains data.paymentMethod.

  1. Pass data.paymentMethod to your server.
  2. From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:

    • paymentMethod: The data.paymentMethod from the didSubmit event from your client app.

        returnUrl: "https://your-company.com/checkout?shopperOrder=12xy.."
    }).then(res => res);

    The /payments response contains:

    • action: Object containing information about the redirect.
    {
      "resultCode":"RedirectShopper",
      "action":{
         "method":"GET",
         "paymentData":"Ab02b4c0!BQABAgCSZT7t...",
         "paymentMethodType":"ideal",
         "type":"redirect",
         "url":"https://test.adyen.com/hpp/redirectIdeal.shtml?brandCode=ideal.."
      },
      "details":[
         {
            "key":"payload",
            "type":"text"
         }
      ],
      ...
    }
  3. Pass the action object to your client app. Drop-in needs this to redirect the shopper to the issuing bank's website or app.

Handle the redirect result

Drop-in redirects the shopper to the issuing bank's app or website where they complete the payment. However, you need to inform Drop-in when the shopper returns to your app. To do this, implement the following in your UIApplicationDelegate:

func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey: Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
   RedirectComponent.applicationDidOpen(from: url)

   return true
}

After the shopper is redirected back to your app, check the payment result by making a /payments/details request.

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode that you received in the /payments/details response to present the payment result to your shopper.

The resultCode values you can receive for iDEAL are:

resultCode Description Action to take
Authorised The payment was successful. Inform the shopper that the payment has been successful.
You will receive the funds in 2-3 days.
Cancelled The shopper cancelled the payment while on their bank's website. Ask the shopper whether they want to continue with the order, or request that they select a different payment method.
Error There was an error when the payment was being processed. Inform the shopper that there was an error processing their payment. The response contains a refusalReason, indicating the cause of the error.
Pending
Received
The shopper has completed the payment but the final result is not yet known. It may take minutes or hours for the iDEAL payments network to confirm this. Inform the shopper that you've received their order, and are waiting for the payment to be completed.
You will receive the final result of the payment in an AUTHORISATION notification.
Refused The payment was refused by the shopper's bank. Ask the shopper to try the payment again using a different payment method.
If a shopper completed the payment but failed to return to your website or app, you will receive the outcome of the payment in an AUTHORISATION notification.

Recurring payments

iDEAL supports recurring transactions through SEPA Direct Debit. When you submit an iDEAL payment, we create a token with the shopper's SEPA details. You can use this token to make recurring payments using SEPA Direct Debit.

  1. Create a shopper token when you make the payment. Use the /listRecurringDetails endpoint to get the recurringDetailReference, or get it from the AUTHORISATION notification.
  2. Make recurring payments specifying:
    • paymentMethod.type: sepadirectdebit
    • recurringProcessingModel: Recurring payment type. Possible values are Subscription, CardOnFile, and UnscheduledCardOnFile.
    • shopperInteraction: Set this to ContAuth.
    • recurringDetailReference

We strongly recommend that you request explicit permission from the shopper if you intend to make recurring SEPA payments. Being transparent about the payment schedule and the amount they will be charged will reduce the risk of chargebacks.

Test and go live

We provide different test issuers for testing iDEAL payments, including testing for payments with Cancelled, Pending, or Refused result codes. Select the corresponding test issuer name, for example, Test Issuer Cancelled to simulate a cancelled payment scenario.

We recommend that you test each scenario before you go live.

Check the status of iDEAL test payments in your Customer Area > Transactions > Payments.

Before you can accept live iDEAL payments, you need to submit a request for iDEAL in your live Customer Area.
