The number of online purchases using the smartphone and tablet is growing significantly
As a resident of the Netherlands, you have online access to your bank account through your bank's internet or mobile banking environment and via the online environment of, for example, afterpay possibilities. Online you are able to pay via your desktop, smartphone or tablet with an online payment method (eg iDEAL, credit card, Afterpay, Klarna).
Online payments are increasing in popularity. This is evidenced by figures from the eCommerce Payment Monitor. This is a survey of payment methods in the Netherlands, conducted by GfK, in collaboration with iDEAL and Thuiswinkel.org.
Not only the number of purchases via the smartphone and tablet grows, but also the purchase prices increase. Almost a quarter of all online purchases are made from a mobile device. Mobile checkout is becoming easier. For example, during a purchase on desktop or laptop, iDEAL QR code payment can be completed on smartphone or tablet without additional sign-in device. That creates promising prospects for further growth of online payments.
