How long has iDEAL been around?

iDEAL was officially launched on September 22, 2005. 

Before iDEAL was introduced, a wide variety of online payment methods existed. From KPN's Switchpoint to Rabo Direct Betalen and ABN Amro's eWallet.  

Interest group had already insisted in 2002 that there should be a uniform online payment method with low transaction costs. That idea was taken up by several banks and resulted in iDEAL. 

In 2006, 10 million iDEAL transactions were made. By 2023, there were 2.1 billion.
