Adyen is a global payment company that enables merchants to accept payments from online and offline channels. Launched in 2006, Adyen offers payment services to clients globally, enabling them to accept payments via more than 250 local payment methods (including debit and credit cards and alternative payment solutions) in over 180 currencies.

In addition to ecommerce payment acceptance for individual merchants, Adyen also offers MarketPay, a specialized product for online platforms and marketplaces. This service enables marketplaces to manage the payment process from onboarding individual merchants to final settlement of payments.
For offline payments, Adyen offers an array of traditional point-of-sale (POS) and mobile POS terminals to merchants in collaboration with Verifone. Adyen provides an end-to-end solution that connects merchants directly to all major and local card schemes and alternative payment methods. This way, Adyen optimizes the process by acting as gateway, processor, and acquirer, eliminating the need to connect with multiple third parties during the payment process. Adyen also enables its users to make contactless payments using Tap to Pay features offered by iPhones and Androids, allowing merchants to accept payments directly from their smartphone.

In addition, Adyen offers an open banking payment option that allows customers to pay directly from their bank account. To make a payment, customers select ‘open banking’ at checkout; the page is then redirected to the customer’s online banking page, where they can confirm the transaction. Adyen settles the payment between the bank and the merchant.
