Solved

Hi,


Feature request; option to add amount to bunq.me payment link.

Would be great to be able to add the amount for my customers so they can click and pay, easy.

Hey there!


Fun fact: we actually have that option 😄

Here's what it looks like: https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX?amount=1.5

This would open a bunq.me page with a prefilled amount of €1,50 👍

That’s awesome!


The link would be even prettier if it would look like:

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/1.5


(PayPal supports Thoes URLs as well)


Would it be possible to build that improvement?

Or does it interfere with future plans for the Bunq.me URL structure?

I don't agree, it's better to follow the conventions, amount is optional so making it optional with ? is better in my opinion.

Sven, it should of course be entirely optional.


So just sending someone to your bunq me page without any specific amount would work using:

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/


And when you want to specify the amount, the extra parameter in the URL will be very easily set by adding it to the URL.


For example to request € 25:

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/25


Or to request € 99,95:

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/99.95


It would be simply URL Rewriting that would insert the extra amount after the / as the same parameter into the ‘amount=xxxx’ variables like in the current situation.


Much easier to create.

And looks much friendlier and trustworthy and less hacky than those amount=parameters.

Much shorter to share in chat messages as well.

I think it's not possible to argue about taste ;-)


For me it's more trustworthy if the url is describing where the parameter is used for. If you have ever used a RESTful api you maybe understand my objection better. If you specify an integer number like /25 you are normally receiving a particular element of a collection.

Nice! Thank you.

Now to find a way for my accounting programm to convert 2,5 to 2.5 :S

Or can bunq just accept 2,5 as an amount in the URL? That would solve a lot for me :)

I could of course talk to some developers in the office 😏

That would be nice. Thanks.

That would be great. It’s the way PayPal works as well. I like this approach because there is no setup required, just enter something like bunq.me/account/amount, for example: https://www.paypal.me/raulpesch/1

How about making it possible to add in the url an reference just like PayPal?

Het zou helemaal super zijn als https://bunq.me/NAAM/BEDRAG/OMSCHRIJVING

gebruikt kon worden. Vergelijkbaar met paypal en mollie plink.

Dit maakt het niet onveiliger, gezien het bedrag bij het wijzigen van de url alsnog bij de aanbieder komt.

Als laatste zou het fijn zijn om de url ongeldig te kunnen maken nadat deze betaald is (als optie).


Voorbeeld, standaard permanent geldige link (tenzij in account uitgeschakeld wordt):

https://bunq.me/NAAM/BEDRAG/OMSCHRIJVING

(?max=0 staat voor permanent geldig)


Éénmalige link (webpagina staat na betaling niet meer toe te betalen):

https://bunq.me/NAAM/BEDRAG/OMSCHRIJVING?max=1


Nu zijn alle handige en mogelijke opties gegeven.


Verdere opties:

- aangeven hoevaak de link betaald mag worden (vervalt na x aantal succesvolle betalingen) ?max=3

- heeft bepaalde geldigheidsduur ?expires=1d

Je zou ook zoiets kunnen maken met de bunq API, op basis van de "bunqme-tab" of "request-inquiry" endpoint.

https://doc.bunq.com/api/1/call/bunq-me-tab

https://doc.bunq.com/api/1/call/request-inquiry


Maar dan moet je ook zelf (bijvoorbeeld met een server-side script) controleren of er betaald is.

Een callback maakt dit wel makkelijker: https://doc.bunq.com/api/1/page/callbacks

Hi all! Thank you for all your comments :)

We made the url a little bit prettier and now it's possible to enter the amount by:

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/1.5

or

https://www.bunq.me/XXXXXXXXXX/1,5

Let us know if you got more ideas for improvement! 😁

Hi Julita, thanks a lot!

Wanted to try this, but SOFORT, seems not to work currently?

213dacc7005f560b14cf4fc1f77ec9a0

The "Starting SOFORT payment..." does not change. Any ideas?I tried Chrome, FF, Safari and mobile Browser. Do I need a Klarna App?

Hi Simon,

Thanks for letting us know! We are aware of this issue and we’ll let you know once we have more information. Unfortunately for now there does not seem to be any workaround for this issue.

Hey Simon,

I just tested SOFORT on my bunq.me page and it works now :) Let us know if you see more weird behaviours!

Have a nice day :D

Okee, misschien wordt dit een gevalletje 'zo blijven we bezig', maar ik deel m toch even voor het techteam.

Het bedrag wordt nu met komma en punt goed weergegeven,waarvoor dank.

Echter het bedrag 3.456,12 pakt ie nog niet goed op. Dat komt natuurlijk door de punt icm de komma. Het is denk ik makkelijk te ondervangen omdat als er een punt of komma gevolgd wordt door meer dan twee getallen (en dus geen decimalen zijn) dan is het bedrag dus een duizendtal of meer. Mogelijk kunnen jullie die herkenning er nog in verwerken. Dank developers! :)

Hi ConX Networks,

Thank you for your answer! We have discussed your suggestion and got to a conclusion that unfortunately we will not include the additional thousands separator support.

The reason for this decision is that we want to keep the url as clean and straightforward as we can. The thousands separators can be either: space, dot or comma and thus would add slightly more complexity to our url. In our eyes the url, which is not a text field, should be kept as pure and simple as possible to provide the best experience.

I hope you understand and if you have more suggestions, please let us know!

Have a great day :)

"https://bunq.me/NAAM/BEDRAG/OMSCHRIJVING"

This would be great also for company's if the use bunq the don't need to use API for creating a payments link and the only need to edit the template

Like this:

https://bunq.me/companyname/100/F2018.04.0119

A lot of web apps use 'merge tags' (Mailchimp, Moneybird). This would make it a super simple to create links using that.

The more people use these bunq.me links to send out payment requests, the more people come in contact with the bunq brand.
