An ideal way of supporting Wikipedia


Banking is not the same in every country. The cost of banking in some countries is absurdly expensive. Credit cards are a necessity and to top it off, it is not always secure.

In the Netherlands we are spoiled; it is cheap, safe and ubiquitous. Most people use their credit card only when they go abroad and some use it for ordering from the Internet as well. Sometimes, because we can pay directly from our account as well using ¨Ideal".

Ideal is convenient, is uses the same security mechanism used for our Internet banking and, it is vastly more secure then a credit card.

This year we can sponsor the Wikimedia Foundation and pay with Ideal, it is a big improvement and it is likely to stimulate a lot of my compatriots to make a donation.
Thanks,
