Accept Laser debit card payments online
The Laser Debit Card is your key to unlocking the Irish market. Laser is managed by the 7 largest banks of Ireland, and the day-to-day tasks are handled by Laser Card Services. With 3 million cardholders, it is the most frequently used debit card in Ireland. Please bear in mind that Laser imposes an online spending limit of € 1500. Should you offer products or services that exceed this amount, we recommend that you offer one of the VISA cards, MasterCard or other international credit cards for example.
NB: ICEPAY offers a credit card connection for all Laser Debit by VISA cards. This means that you reach all cardholders with a Laser Debit VISA card and not all Laser Debit users.
