A Global Payment Processor
Headquartered in Amsterdam, Adyen is a merchant account provider that offers online, mobile, and in-person international payment processing. The company prominently advertises interchange-plus pricing. The service claims that it was founded in 2006 and that it is a direct global processor with Visa and MasterCard that can process and settle payments in any country or currency. In December 2014, Adyen raised $250 million in venture capital to expand its payments platform. As of February 2017, it claims to process more than $90 billion internationally per year resulting in revenues reaching $727 million. In February 2018, the online marketplace eBay announced plans to gradually replace its default payment processor PayPal with Adyen over the next three years, and the process is already underway. Adyen is partnered with numerous acquiring banks in order to process payments internationally and claims to be a direct processor.
