Payment methods for subscriptions
For monthly subscription plans such as Kobo Plus, we currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express iDeal, and PayPal.
Notes for iDeal customers (Netherlands):
- iDeal can now be saved as a default payment method for subscriptions. You'll be charged one Euro cent (0.01 Euros) on your credit card. This charge is used to validate your payment method and will be refunded within 2-3 business days.
- After you check out, you'll receive an email from SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area). The email will have a title similar to "Debit initiated by Rakuten Kobo". With SEPA, you can make cashless euro payments via credit transfer and direct debit. To learn more about SEPA, visit: https://www.ecb.europa.eu/paym/integration/retail/sepa/html/index.nl.html
