Adyen Now Enables Interac Debit Mobile Payments In Canada


On the heels of its Canadian launch last year, Adyen announced the addition of Interac Debit on Mobile for in-browser and in-app as a payment method for Canadian merchants. The company is also growing its partnership with on-demand food delivery service company foodora Canada, which allows the firm to take Interac Debit payments via digital wallets with the inclusion of Google Pay and Apple Pay, according to an announcement.

The company is one of the first to market with Interac Debit on Mobile via Apple Pay and Google Pay, which lets Canadian merchants transact using Interac Debit through digital wallet payments both in-app and via the mobile web. With the news, merchants can now offer shoppers in Canada the flexibility of paying with the method of their choice through all channels from point of sale to mobile, among others.

Adyen President of North America Kamran Zaki said in the announcement, “Part of our core value lies in our speed to market and the ability to provide local payment offerings on a global scale.” Zaki continued, “We are excited to continue to work with foodora as they introduce new payment offerings, which will ultimately enhance their customers’ buying experience.”

foodora Canada Managing Director David Albert said, according to the announcement, “Our priority is to continually enhance the foodora user experience by offering greater convenience and increased accessibility.” Albert continued, “Expanding our partnership with Adyen and enabling Interac Debit transactions to grow our payment method options for our customers is a natural fit.”

Interac Corp. AVP Retail Payments Nader Henin said that the company was excited to work with Adyen, which has a strong record of quickly bringing brands to market. Henin said, “Already recognized as a global payments leader, we are pleased to support Adyen’s expansion into the Canadian market with foodora, allowing Canadians to pay when they want, how they want and stay in control of their money, using Interac Debit as their payment of choice.”
