Tikkie is a popular online payment method in the Netherlands. It was developed by ABN AMRO, a Dutch bank, and is widely used by individuals, businesses, and organizations to facilitate payments.
The Tikkie platform allows users to send payment requests through messages, whether it’s via SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, or other messaging applications. To create a payment request, users first need to register on the platform and link their bank account. They can then enter the requested amount, add a description, and send the payment request to the intended recipient.
When the payment request is sent, the recipient receives a message containing a secure link. By clicking on this link, the recipient is redirected to a payment page where they can choose their bank and make the payment directly from their bank account. Tikkie supports most Dutch banks, making it convenient for transactions between different financial institutions.
Tikkie also offers additional features such as the ability to split a payment request among multiple people, set a deadline for payment, and send automated payment reminders.
In addition to payment requests, Tikkie also allows users to make direct payments by scanning QR codes or using payment links. These features are useful for online purchases, donations, and person-to-person transactions.
