So, are traditional methods wrong?

No way. Absolutely not. Our trusted payment methods are not wrong at all. iDEAL is still the most widely used payment method for the majority of our compatriots. In fact, the system is so fully established that when you create an account at an online casino, you have to use iDEAL to verify that account.

Credit cards are also popular payment methods. They are the oldest online payment methods used since the beginning of commercial trading on the net. They are linked directly to your bank account and every month you get a clear statement of all your payments.

And yet the popularity of payment companies like Trustly and PayPal is rising

Internet payment companies offer advantages, ease of use certainly being one not to be underestimated. Let’s discover together how to use these payment methods and then you will find out why they are so popular.

PayPal: no more need for a card or debit card

PayPal is an internet payment company that has since won its spurs worldwide with reliable and correct online payments. 

When you use the service for the first time, you need to create an account. A decent e-mail address is of the utmost importance here. This is because in the future, PayPal will use that e-mail address to identify you when you make payments. Once your bank or credit card is linked to your account, you no longer need to use a card or a card reader. Paying has never been easier.

Trustly: an innovative payment company from the Far North

A little newer than PayPal and less globally distributed, you have Trustly. This Swedish payment company is linked directly to your bank account. You don’t need to create an account and your details are not tracked. Every time you make a payment, it seems like the first time you have used this service.

In the countries where the payment method is active, you can instruct your own bank to make payments via Trustly. You choose Trustly as your payment option at the webshop or online merchant and follow the on-screen instructions.

Paying with Trustly or PayPal, a hype or worthwhile after all?

We certainly don’t want to detract from the classic payment methods. These are fine and still indispensable for many things. Besides: not all online shops offer PayPal and Trustly as online payment methods.

Another advantage of using PayPal is that your purchases are protected, which is not the case with iDEAL, for example. The company has been around since the end of 1998, so we can no longer talk about a hype here. Above all, Trustly offers a lot of convenience.

It is very convenient to be able to make your payments without a procedure with a card reader or entering a lot of data. It is our opinion that the popularity of these payment methods will therefore only increase.
