I'm in with Adyen!

Adyen is a fantastic service. We have NEVER had a service disruption. Just the opposite, Adyen helped us through several incidents where we were being carded or otherwise targeted. Of gateways in the market, Adyen has some of the easiest-to-use interfaces, a fantastic set of fraud management tools, an actual omnichannel presence (with access to high-quality POS devices), and most importantly, a world-class customer success team that is always in our corner. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone looking for an omnichannel gateway or needing a gateway to be integrated into their commerce platform or ERP.
  • Omnichannel Payment Collection
  • Fraud Mitigation
  • Cost Effective
  • Reliable Gateway Services
  • International Payment Collection
  • Customer Service
  • Would like more options for hardened POS terminals
Any user on Netsuite, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, or Magento should be considering Adyen. As well as customers that are considering Stripe, but also want a physical or international presence. Adyen is highly competitive with Braintree and has much better success support. Not suited for customers who already have a payment-integrated platform, like Square or Shopify.

  • Simple integration
  • The support team has a 24 hour SLA to respond which is way too long at times.
  • The documentation on the site can seem out of sync at times.
Provides pay by link which can be implemented quickly with minimal development.

Adyen is a our payment processor for physical retail storefronts, e-commerce, and call center/concierge, all of which utilize Dynamics 365 F&O, which Adyen is out-of-box solution for. The call center manages our wine club subscriptions, or in other words re-occurring transactions. We are about to launch wallet payments on our e-commerce store utilizing the built-in integration Adyen provides.
  • Integrates well with D365 FO
  • Wallet Payment integration
  • Customer portal
  • Would like to see some additional offering for payment terminals
  • QR code payments
  • Pay by Phone App, with no needed development for customers.
Well suited for Ecommerce. Checkout is seamless, especially with the addition of wallet payments (Apple Pay, Google Pay). Physical store checkout could be improved due to terminal hardware and customer payments. Terminal hardware could be improved, and it'd be great to have an iPhone app/software delivered by Adyen, rather than having to build in-house.

We use Adyen as our payment service provider of choice for acquiring transactions and local payment methods in a highly data-driven context. Our use case is recurring top up transactions which users use on their account to then access a variety of payment services in a European context. We utilise Adyen differently in each geography since we operate throughout the EU, offering local payment method where available and beneficial for conversion. Additionally, we also make use of fraud prevention tools offered by Adyen to manage risk.
  • Provide exhaustive data points on an individual transaction basis
  • Offer a holistic payment service solution
  • Offer a high variety and relevant payment methods per geography
  • Their native platform is slow to offer changes
  • They lack data manipulation and visualisation functions natively on Adyen's platform
  • The documentation page is not exhaustive and up-to-date
Wherever a payments solution needs to be offered relatively fast, it's easy to set up and powerful, with strong technical capabilities. It works well both in settings where there isn't a dedicated payments department or team, as it can be customised with relative ease and low technical know-how.

Adyen processes our payments and we manage our chargebacks as well in Adyen.
  • Easy access to various reports
  • The "Insights" section that shows the data in a user friendly way
  • It's relatively easy to add new payment methods
  • I would like to be able to create my own reports, like a combination between "Received payment details" and "Interactive payment accounting".
  • Maybe you can have a better integration with PayPal. The disputes are reflected all wrong in Adyen, for example if we accept a chargeback in PayPal, in Adyen we see a "chargeback reversed" status first, then we see a "refund" status. This is very confusing for us, we have accepted that chargeback, which means we have lost the case, what are a Chargeback Reversed and a Refund statuses doing here? I think PayPal is trying to unblock the transaction that received the chargeback, but this is a very confusing way of handling the chargebacks. If I look at the "Dispute transaction details" reports, all the PayPal chargebacks are "won" because of that "Chargeback reversed" status, which is obviously wrong, we lose some cases and we win others.
  • Amex chargebacks could be integrated. We don't see them in Adyen at all.
I like that it is easy to add a new payment method and I think the reports are good and detailed.

One of my B2B clients is using an online channel and accepting orders worldwide. During covid time business needs to collect fund while ordering keeping in mind specific payment options and security. Also, businesses want a list of specific payment options which should be available in Europe, China, and the US region. For these regions, businesses that want the list of payment options should be configurable so that options can be available based on the region the customers belong to. Also, businesses are looking for a solution that is already PCI DSS Compliant so that businesses do not have to worry about it. So Adyen fulfills all of these requirements and it is widely used in Europe as well.
  • PCI DSS Compliant Solution
  • Provided options to configure a specific list of payments, like Alipay, ACH, PayPal, etc.
  • Good support and quick solution for the technical help
  • Well described documentation on technical integrations
  • Drop in framework to display the payment options
  • Payment APIs and frameworks are getting upgraded but using updated features requires changes on the implementation side.
  • Sometimes error messages are not self-explanatory and we need to connect to support.
  • Adyen portal should support more languages.
We have integrated our eCommerce application with Adyen and the following are the scenarios: Drop-in framework is well-suited and fits very well in our case. Also, it has a secured integration layer with front-end technology. We do not worry about PCI DSS Compliance and audit as API integration works well independently. Also, all of the payment information of customers is encrypted and secured which increases trust in privacy. Different Payment types integration like 2-step verification, account login verification, etc. Runtime configuration to display or restrict payment type.

We use Adyen as a direct acquirer in our e-commerce, it has proved to be a very agile and efficient payment processing tool, it has a high approval rate, and a response time that suits online purchases well.It has transshipped to other payment methods just as quickly when a purchase is denied by its platform. It has very clear forecast reports, as well as withdrawal logs with all the details of processed amounts and card scheme fees.
  • Excellent dispute management with direct API with issuers
  • detailed cashout records with the fees of the well-discriminating card schemes.
  • very clear forecast reports
  • the portal could have the option in Portuguese
  • the reports could have the option in Portuguese
  • chargeback defenses could have the option to be compiled in Portuguese
For example when it comes to disputes and chargebacks, we have a very appropriate portal where we have access to all the information provided by the issuer and the full term of the credit card schemes for defense. In addition to having an FAQ where they explain each reason code and how to prepare a defense.Another positive point is that when we needed to answer some extra questions we had a quick response in Portuguese by email and by phone that helped us completely.

Adyen is our only payment gateway. Thanks to Adyen we are able to offer localised payment across over 180 countries that we trade in. Adyen offers sufficient chargeback solutions and some fraud detection tools, however we use additional fraud tools as digital products are at increased risk in that respect.

  • Reporting and insights
  • Chargeback
  • Fraud detection

Adyen is a great payment gateway. Their account management is excellent and always happy to provide more insights and answers when needed. I personally especially appreciate reports that help us make a decision which payment enable in what regions. The Adyen CMS is easy to use and intuitive. And the most importantly, the number of payments offered is impressive.

We use it for our E-Commerce activities. It gives us a platform service where we can gather both Credit and Paypal payments. Adyen is a good choice for us as it is a global player so we use it in various countries around the globe.
  • combining different payment options
  • user friendly front end
  • A solution for payment in advance would be good
Any e-commerce scenario where you are looking for a payment service provider especially if you are in various countries Adyen gives you a solid solution

Ayden is the financial solution to my business when it comes to payments, expenses, and tracking each transaction. It helps me to organize and stay in the know with my money and where the company sits as a whole financially. It's been a safe and informative way to manage our money.
  • Tracks expenses and categorizes them well.
  • Protects my business from fraud.
  • Easy to add more payment methods.
  • Would like to customize some features for my company.
  • Customer support has been slow before.
Ayden has been a great resource for us with international transactions. We know that they can be a trusted gateway when it comes to dealing with our client's money. Thankful to have that confidence in this system. It also has a user-friendly interface, which allows for a concise process with clients as well.

We use Adyen to receive payment from part of our clients.
It allow us to accept online payments and help us manage those by a simple and helpful reports.
  • Online payment
  • nice reports
  • Low rates and [conversion] fees
  • Might need to be a bit more tailoring to the company needs
I guess that people do business with people. in some way we had the best connection with Adyen account manager and sales team.
In addition, they offer the best rates and had some great recommendations.

Adyen is one of the gateways that our company uses. We use Adyen for international transactions across many countries, currencies, and payment methods. We have been using Adyen for years. We process millions of dollars of transactions a day. Adyen [serves] an important role in our overall business operation.
  • Adyen's customer service has been very helpful, especially when deadlines are approaching.
  • Adyen's professionalism when dealing with some suspicious buyers and sellers has been appreciated.
  • Adyen has had a very high uptime over the last year.
  • Adyen does not have the best auth rates we have seen, especially in some of the LATAM markets.
  • Adyen has not been rather expensive compared with its competitors.
  • Adyen has not introduced the latest payment method our customers have been asking for.
They get the job done, but we need to reduce our opex costs.

We need help in creating fraud models that will be effective for our sellers.

We need the ability to make transaction processing more than a commodity

In our company, we use Adyen to manage payment done by card and auto/renewals. It is used in customer support to manage payments, failed transactions and cancel old auto-renewals when the accounts are not migrated into our new CRM. It is mainly used for billing and payments information and eventually from the CS department and from the finance one. It is the tool we use to recall payments done by credit card when the information is not registered in our main CRM system.
  • Reckon genuine payments and trust list user when they cannot pay with their credit card.
  • Cancel payment details to avoid auto-renewals.
  • Refund payments in one click to the original source.
  • When looking for payments details such as last 4 digits card (for instance), it would be great to display more details about the transaction in the results, as the full name of the card holder.
  • The layout is not the best one. There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to website design.
  • A functionality to disable the credit card details instead of deleting it at all.
Adyen is a good tool to manage payments and to switch between different currencies. Easy to understand, despite the poor design, it allows you to manage payments and billing easily. It is pretty useful to refund payments and check the status of refused one. You can trust list users and allow them to pay when they got locked by the system for any reason, or you can understand if the reason for rejection is due to an issue on the user side and advise accordingly.
