Create and send payment requests

Easily create payment requests that you can send to your customers.


Receive payments faster

On average, 50% of payment requests are paid within one hour, and 80% are paid within 24 hours.


Receive real-time insights

Receive real-time notifications when you receive a payment, or when a refund is paid.


Use the Tikkie API to generate payment requests for Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer (B2C) propositions. Share payment request links using SMS, WhatsApp, or any other channel.

Payments are completed using iDEAL and your clients do not need to install a separate app to pay - all they need is a Dutch bank account.

Tikkie currently has over 6 million users and a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of +78. An impressive 80% of business payment requests are paid within 24 hours, and 50% within one hour.

Use new Tikkie API

We officially released the Tikkie API. In November 2017, we launched our first product, the Tikkie Payment Request API.

Based on what we have learned, and feedback from our customers, we decided to rethink the API and redesign it from the ground up. This redesign allows us to easily extend and add new functionality in the future.

How it works


1. Create a payment request

Create a payment request with an open amount, where the customer can select the amount themselves, or create a payment request for a specific amount.


2. Share payment request

Share payment requests using your preferred customer channels.


3. Retrieve payment information

After a payment has been made, retrieve details on the payment.


The amounts stated below are considered on a monthly basis, where they are counted from zero on the first day or every month. They address successfully completed payment requests.
