Hi all!

I’m from the Legal Team at bunq 👋 and I’ve noticed that there are a few questions about the privacy of bunq.me and why we show your (legal) name. Let me clarify a bit from a legal perspective (and I promise I won’t make it that boring!😉).


For your safety!

To ensure your safety, we want to make it visible whom you're paying through bunq.me. In order to do so, we show the user's initials and last name if he or she sets up a personalised webpages to raise funds instantly through bunq.me.


But, why?

If we don’t show the full name, users could add a nickname to their bunq.me webpage and would therefore be able to create a webpage with a name that isn’t their real name (i.e. Amnesty International). You will think that you donate to Amnesty International, but it’s in fact someone else 🙈 .


Own experience

Just to show you guys how easy it is to raise money with bunq.me, I’ll show you my own experience. Imagine you want a very special Christmas dinner this year, a special evening with all your family and friends.🍴 The perfect solution for me: set up a bunq.me webpage and just easily raise funds beforehand via (bunq.me/[yourawesomename]). Sit back, relax, open the first bottle of champagne and focus on what Christmas is all about: being Together! 🥂


We love transparency! Therefore, we are always happy to explain what we do and why! Do you have a question or do you want to share your personal experience here? Let us know!


Have a nice day everyone!🙌

Nice, but how can people without bunq donate? Is there a possibility to add sofort?

Hey Matthias! 😊

Indeed, non bunqers with an iDEAL or SOFORT account will also be able to donate! 🙌

photo
26

But please make a Button for Sofort below iDeal so non bunqers can see directly how they can pay. And it would be cool if i can remove my full name and my profile picture from the page and change the name to something else! (Privacy)

I Agree

Missed opertunity here! Would have loved to see a more patreon (recurring) style like payments. And to be able to use this on a more international scale with VISA/MasterCard support.


This is an exact copy of PayPal.me but still, less useful!

Yes, please add recurring donations :-) https://together.bunq.com/topic/donate-link-patreon-function

Nice feature. I found out that if you append ?amount=5 to the url, the amount is pre-filled with 5 euro. Love this feature.

Would be even better if it just worked like this: https://bunq.me/yoeri/10 (like PayPal.. :)

Er wordt echt geluisterd! Thanks devs :)

Would be great if we could fix the amount. (and have multiple links for multiple amounts)

photo

Hey Martijn🙋

Currently bunq.me supports just one link, which you can deactivate whenever you like and create a new one.

For links with a set amount you can always create shared requests, which are open to anyone and have a fixed amount, and send them through your favorite social channels.

Cheers!

Cool feature, well done!


One suggestion: allow payers to to enter a small description for the transaction. Such as “my donation for your project X” or “our eBay sale regarding your iPhone” etc.

photo

I think the request feature might be a better use for this.

photo
12

Yes, a small description/note can be handy sometimes.

photo
12

A description which can be predefined via the link would be great for invoicing!

bunq.me/username?amount=1234.56&description=Invoice-1234

photo
12

And for donations people often want to leave a short message

photo
11

+1 for Stefan.


This way customers can add a invoice id or other payment reference to the message field. Business users dont have to generate normal bunq payment requests this way.


And sometimes people want to add a small personal or thanks message to a payment/donation.

Is it possible to have multiple pages (for different projects)?

Good evening 😀 It is possible for each user to open one bunq.me page! The moment you've chosen that you want to raise money for another bunq.me project, you have to deactivate the previous page 👌

photo
photo

You can preset an amount at bunq.me with adding a "?amount=5" after your Link.

Fantastic. Unfortunately there is a limit of 99.999,99 :)

10.000,00 voor iDeal ;)

I'd like to see this tip (?amount=x) on the bunq.me page.

It's working on bunq.me: https://www.bunq.me/pay?amount=0.99

Does the link expire?

Hi Sander!

No it does not, once you create a bunq.me link this will be displayed under your bunq user profile! This is permanent, until of course you deactivate the link.

You can even personalise it with a cool picture😏📸

Cheers!

Awesome!

This is great stuff, but how many bunq.me creations can I make?

And when it’s more than one, works it on the same time?

photo

Hello Harm Jan 😀

It is possible for each user to open one bunq.me page! The moment you've chosen that you want to raise money for another bunq.me project, you have to deactivate the previous page. So they will not work at the same time 🌈 Enjoy the evening!

I have just created my bunq.me page to support animals from the streets in Brazil. I would like to send an e-mail to each donor to show transparency and the story of the animal they helped with their donation. So my question is, how can I contact the donors?

photo

Hey Fernanda! That's a beautiful initiative! Why don't you send them an email including your link so you can tell the story in advanced?

Quick! Claim your first name before someone else does this!

Kudos! Definitely see a value for non-profit projects or initiatives.

I use the payment request often while selling on “marktplaats” (Dutch eBay). Asking the buyer to go to my bunq.me page is even more easy compared to sending them a payment request (requires me to fill in their email address or mobile number, which they might not want to reveil to me).


Great feature, can’t wait to amaze my next buyer.

(ps: anyone interested in buying an iPhone 7plus? I accept payments via bunq.me!! 😂)

Great to see that aftwr getting 188 votes. This iswa has been developed and launched this evening! Of course I’ve made my link aswel: http://bunq.me/jelledrijver (feel free to show me how happy you are with this feature 😜)


I agree on some of the other comments that the recurring payment feature is missing and would be very welcome. Ali told me that that is difficult due to various reasons. (He will explain me more about why this is the fact later). What could be a more easy to develop feature would be a recurring reminder / notification to pay again... although this is not ideal (because by reminding the chance is bigger that people will stop donating and therefore it’s more difficult to predict what amount you will receive each month).


Nevertheless, it’s a great feature to raise money, being paid back, get donations and support etc.


Will definitively mention http://bunq.me/jelledrijver in my Jelly Driver Podcast episodes from now on. 😃

Sowieso zou je hiervoor -althans voor iDealgebruikers- gebruik moeten maken van automatische incasso. Mag naar mijn weten uberhaupt niet aangeboden worden door particulieren..

Did some testing today, just for the fun of it and it works pretty cool. I love even the little things as holding down the link to copy it on my clipboard. But there are some things I would like to suggest:

  • a language option. The whole process is in English. I would like to see that the language is based on the browser settings of the user on the other end.
  • the display of my full name is something I hate. Not because I have something to hide, but Johnny isn't what I would like to be called. I would be nice if the whole process shows my initial and full last name. J. Smit in this case :). I know this will impact other services as well.
  • There is al limit that a person can't donate more then 99.999.99 :)...

So please donate some for my project: https://www.bunq.me/thefirstbunqmillionaire :)

That's pretty nice from Ms Zwart. Wondering if an anonymous philanthropist just DOUBLED that donation. 🤔

I love all the new features, but there is always room for improvement for instance, I'd like to be able to add a description to the donations, it is always nice to be able send a little message to someone your donating to. And also, I'm just a poor student at here is my link: bunq.me/jmvdmeulen :P

Dear Bunqies 🌈


I love the Bunq.me update 👍


I like it so much that I wanted another one. I tried to add a new account and in this way add a new bunq.me project. From Bunq chat service i learned this is not possible (yet). They suggested to add my idea on the wish list/ feedback for team dev/ the boss @ Bunq.


What do you think?

photo

Good evening Doan! 😃

The way to add this topic to the wishlisht is to open a new topic yourself! Add the label 'idea' and we can turn it into a wish at the moment more users like the idea as well 😃

Thanks Yoram. I joined JanBas with his exact same ‘wish’ / request. 👍

I thought the many many donations will clutter up my transaction view... but bunq thought of that too. I love the fact that all donations are summed to just one line per day in the transaction view. Of course you can also see the details if you want. Nice!

Jan & fellow Bunqers,


I am writing from this from my business account now.


Project HeartBeats.. is a project inspired by my brother.

He has a failing heart (disease). I am fighting with him to safe/ extend his life and perhaps make it worth while to keep fighting.


We never know when our time is up, we must embrace life as it comes.


I am investing my time and money into the launch of a new heart foundation. In order to attract creative people with a good heart and mind to help me, crowdfunding 💌 let’s make this happen together!


Feel free to drop a small donation Https://bunq.me/HeartBeats 😘


I will add you to my heart support list and if you want to join this project send me an mail too heartbeats@start404.nl


My heart goal before 2018 is to reach 10 K or more to make this happen.


The foundation will be launched on 14th of February!


I am also reselling some of my stuff to raise more than enough to get his heart beat started.


This is a project for a lifetime 🙌 Become a lifesaver too!


Thanks for reading, sharing & caring ❤


Doan #HeartBeats 🌈

Hi Fabian, thank for sharing! I totally agree that the name (initials and last-name) of the bunq user should be visible. But there is a catch I don't like. The very moment a donator goes to the IDEAL-page of his bank my full name (first name and last name) will be revealed even whiteout having to do a real donation. There is a bank which doesn't require a user to be logged in to see these details, so every living soul can now find out my full name.. which could end up to be used in social engineering tricks. :) As I suggested before, bunq should use initials and last name all over. For instance, the name on my ING account contains of initials and last name, nothing more. Nevertheless, I do love the bunq.me feature!

Hi John!


Thanks for your input and bringing this to our attention. We’ll post here as soon as we have more information about this! ✌


For now, have a nice day John 🙌

Hi Fabian, recently support asked some details about this matter because I mentioned it in another post. I have send support some detailed information including some screenshots. If I remember correctly, support forwarded this issue to legal.. that would be your team :)... If I can be of any assistants, please let me know!

And you also have a great day!

Thanks John!


My apologies, should have been more clear. Yes, indeed legal is aware of this matter. Thank you for bringing it to our attention 🙌 We will make sure to post all news regarding this matter here.


Cheers!

I've noticed that my bunq IBAN is visible when selecting iDEAL as payment method.

So people can het my name and IBAN..


I dont know how personal/private this information is? But people always advice not to share a picture of your bankcard, because of this information on it..

photo
9

Very good point Sebastiaan, especially because you don't have to be an authenticated person to see this information. This information should be visible only from the moment you are logged in to your bank. And Triodos isn't helping because they show your full name without logging in.

photo
photo
7

@John Do


Where do you see a full name when you choose Triodos?

photo
9

When you select Triodos and then press PAY. You end up on the IDEAL page of Triodos. See the field "Omschrijving" which contains your full name because that is how bunq registered your name to your account. In this case I find it more a problem of Triodos. I will point this out to them. I think it would be more save if bunq doesn't assign your full name to a account. To be clear, you dont have to be a Triodos user.

/8amd48Oh7yQAAAAASUVORK5CYIIA

photo
5

In fact, with the refreshed pages of bunq.me it now also shows the IBAN when you click IDEAL (without even selecting a bank) at the bottom of the page:

7dd0eb2b64a80994b0a66d365651c4ca

Now that doesn't really bother me that much. Then again, I do agree that the name (at least Initial. Lastname) should be visible as you are transferring money.

Just checked the Triodos link and there it also shows my Initial. Lastname, so not full name?

photo
7

See my screenshot above. Triodos absolutely shows your full name. All other banks also, but they require that you first login. It also doesnt bother me al lot. But I find it not very esthetic when my full name shows up :)

photo
6

I hate to disappoint you ;-) It doesn't on mine (see screenshot). Maybe they registered users differently just after the launch?

cf7e36e7611712d663ae630aa5e7e7df

photo
5

I see only my last name. But maybe my full name is too long. That was also an issue on the maestro cards. However, they show information provided by bunq..

photo
6

Uhh? that is strange... so bunq did register users differently?! Hope that they will correct that.

Come to think of it.. bunq did changed something because when receiving the envelope with our new cards recently it was addressed differently then when we received our first cards.

photo
7

It's not only Triodos, i see the same description when selecting Rabobank. But i don't see my full name. Only my IBAN, first letter of firstname and full lastname.

photo
5

Of course... but I ment that bunq registered my full name to my account numbers instead of just my initials and last name like with you. Still its strange that bunq.me does show the correct name instead of my full name. I would figure that they would be showing the same name. I hope it is just a bug.

photo
8

Hmm.. did a small test by transferring money to another bank. And guess what.. my name is correct: initials and last-name. So, it looks like my full name only appears when using bunq.me

photo
10

Now indeed i see my full name. I just did some tests with bunq.me today. I never use my full name and would like to choose how my name is displayed.

photo
7

For me it displays my first name which is not my call name and then only half of my call name, no last name or initials.

This has to be bug 🐜

photo
8

Problem resolved I noticed just now. I don't see my full name anymore. Thnx!

photo
5

@John I don’t think it was resolved, for me it still displays the names I don’t want there. Did you change something in the app recently that affects your name?

photo
photo
5

The same with my name at both German Banks when receiving money from bunq, just one letter of the prename, and I have a short family name.

photo
12

Hopelijk kan er ook nog een referentie veld worden toegevoegd tijdens het proces. Zo kan ik niet alleen de naam zien, maar ook de reden van de betreffende betaling...

Helaas niet, zou wel een mooie toevoeging zijn overigens +1
