Adyen offers merchants online services for accepting electronic payments by payment methods including credit cards, bank based payments such as debit cards, bank transfer, and real-time bank transfers based on online banking. Adyen's online payment platform connects to payment methods across the world. Payment methods include international credit cards, local cash-based methods, such as Boleto in Brazil, and Internet banking methods, such as iDEAL in the Netherlands. The technology platform acts as a payment gateway, payment service provider and offers risk management and local acquiring.
Adyen was founded in 2006 by a team of payment industry professionals (the core management team hails from Bibit and have been working together for close to twelve years), including Pieter van der Does and Arnout Schuijff, now the CEO and CTO respectively. Headquartered in Amsterdam, the company employs around 800 people in offices in thirteen countries.
In 2017, it was #5 on the Forbes Cloud 100 list.
In 2016, the company saw transaction volume increase to $90 billion, up from $50 billion in 2015.
On January 31, 2018 eBay announced that it had signed an agreement with Adyen to become its primary payments processing partner. The transition to full payments intermediation will take several years. eBay will begin intermediation on a small scale in North America starting in the second half of 2018, expanding in 2019 under the terms of the operating agreement with PayPal. In 2021, eBay expects to have transitioned a majority of its marketplace customers to Adyen. Adyen reportedly paid eBay $70 million in cash and $83 million in stock warrants for the privilege.
