Create payment requests that you can share via SMS, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or any other channel you want.

Send easy payment requests

Tikkie lets you create payment requests. Your clients do not need to install a separate app and have a one click payment experience.

Works with all banks

It works for everybody. It does not matter which Dutch bank a consumer is using for his payments.

Direct settlement

Users pay via iDEAL. You receive the payment directly on your bank account.
What is it?

With the Tikkie API you can generate automatic payment requests. The links can be shared via SMS, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or any other channel you want.

The payment is done via iDEAL and your clients do not need to install a separate app to be able to pay. This means that Tikkie works for customers of all banks in the Netherlands and payments are directly paid to your bank account. Super easy.

Next to the Tikkie API, we offer a Tikkie Portal and Tikkie App. With over two million users, our experience is that for consumers 80% of the payment requests are being payed within one day (NPS +74). Requests sent from businesses show even better statistics.


  • Successfully completed payment requests will be charged.
  • For now, the payment request can only be sent to your own clients. It is not possible to generate payment requests on behalf of third parties.

Case Study

Do you want to book flights or add-ons for your trip? At Transavia you can initiate these changes to your bookings via Whatsapp and do 'one click payments' with Tikkie!

Via WhatsApp, a customer can ask for:

  • Check-in baggage
  • Special baggage
  • Chairs

When such a request is done, Transavia creates a Payment Request via Tikkie and sends this link via Whatsapp. With this 'Tikkie', you can pay for products fast and easy via your own bank. Results are shown in 'My Transavia'.

How does it work?
The Tikkie API lets you create a payment request platform which can be used to register new users and create unique payment requests. The API works with three easy steps.

Setup a platform

Setup a platform, create the users you need for your own usage. By creating users you can differentiate the payment requests you send and payments will be transferred to the bank account set for that user.

Send a payment request

Create unique payment requests for a given bank account. Then share these via SMS, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger or any channel you want. Users can pay their requests via iDEAL.

Retrieve payment information

Retrieve information about payments that are actually paid to your system to have a total overview.
