To the general public, Adyen is best known for their spectacular IPO. Yet millions of people in the Netherlands and abroad engage with the company on a daily basis. Adyen has built a payment platform from scratch to process payments simply, quickly, and safely. Leading companies like Facebook, Spotify, Netflix, Microsoft, Nike and De Bijenkorf use it, along with a growing number of smaller businesses like restaurants, online retailers and museums.
Adyen’s infrastructure is directly connected to virtually every payment system: from Visa, MasterCard and other credit and debit cards to PayPal and Apple Pay. They provide the ideal payment solution for online, mobile, and in-store transactions. What makes Adyen unique is that they have created a premium product to build partnerships that help companies grow. For this payment provider, payment processing is not a commodity, it’s a strategic proposition.
Since their inception, Adyen has experienced incredible development. The company, with its future headquarters on Rokin, Amsterdam, now operates from 25 offices across five continents. In 2020, Adyen posted net sales of over €680 million and processed more than €300 billion in payments. And the ceiling is still a long way off. Adyen’s next goal is payment volumes topping €1 trillion per year. Given their 25+ percent annual growth, it seems like only a matter of time.
