- Contactless technology is gradually gaining traction in the Netherlands. There were 15 million contactless cards in the country in 2015 – equivalent to 45.5% of the overall payments cards. According to the Dutch Payments Association, the number of contactless POS terminals in the country reached 56,000 – equivalent to 17.2% of overall POS terminals – by the end of 2014. Banks are increasingly embracing contactless technology to provide convenience to customers. For example, ABN Amro replaced all its payment cards with contactless variants in December 2015, enabling consumers to make payments of up to US$27.8 (EUR25) without entering a PIN. Similarly, ING Bank and Rabobank are replacing their old cards with contactless-enabled equivalents.
- Larger banks have introduced contactless mobile payment (m-payment) solutions. The latest initiative is the launch of a contactless m-payment service by Rabobank, in partnership with mobile service provider KPN in January 2016. In December 2015, ING Bank launched a mobile banking app based on host card emulation (HCE) technology to facilitate contactless m-payments. In 2014, Vodafone, in association with Visa, launched a contactless m-payment service, Visa SmartPass, which allows consumers to pay by mobile phone at contactless POS terminals with a V Pay logo. Consumers can pay up to US$27.8 (EUR25) by waving mobile phones at contactless-enabled terminals.
- The uptake of iDEAL, an alternative payment solution, among Dutch consumers is increasing. As of June 2015, iDEAL accounted for 56% of the online transactions made in the Netherlands, up from 54% in June 2014. It provides payment services to merchants in more than 50 markets globally, who sell to Dutch customers. The company formed an alliance with Trustly, a Swedish payment solution provider, in December 2015. With this agreement, Trustly became iDEAL's licensed Collecting Payment Service Provider, allowing it to provide payment solutions to merchants. It also formed an agreement with Alipay, the Chinese payment solution provider of the Alibaba group, to integrate the iDEAL payment option to AliExpress, the Alibaba group's online store, in March 2015. Customers purchasing online on AliExpress now have the option to pay through iDEAL.
