How to activate iDEAL or Bancontact through Stripe?

18 0 21

As a Belgian company, we have many customers from Belgium and Netherlands. This means we definitely need to offer iDEAL and Bancontact as payment methods.


So far I created a Stripe account because I believe Stripe is a direct payment provider, which means my customers wouldn't need to leave the shop during the payment process. See diff here:


Shopify Payments is not yet available for Belgian companies. Therefore, using Stripe seems like a no-brainer because Stripe is also what Shopify Payments is built on. I love working with the most used options.


However, after activating Stripe and connecting it to my Shopify account, in the Shopify settings panel I only see VISA, MasterCard, Amex and Apply Pay. Even after activating Bancontact and iDEAL in the Stripe settings panel, I'm not able to add them in the Shopify settings panel. 


I found some Stripe tutorials about how to add these options using "sources", but I can't believe this would require actual coding to activate.


My only remaining solution would be to activate Mollie as well, but that would leave me with two different payment providers, which I'd rather avoid... Any help?
