Adyen Expands Into Canada, Adds Adidas As Client

Adyen Expands Payments Platform Into Canada

Adyen, the payments platform company, announced Tuesday (Oct. 30) that it has expanded into Canada and landed four new customers.

In a press release, Adyen said it was chosen by Dollar Shave Club, Adidas, Busbud and Canada Goose to process payments. The company said the expansion into Canada brings a unified commerce capability to domestic and global businesses with customers in that country.

According to Adyen, its single payments platform can be used across all channels: in-store, mobile or eCommerce. Instead of working with a number of suppliers and third-party connections, the company is simplifying payments for merchants.

"We are excited to provide Canadian businesses with a seamless payment experience. With Adyen, businesses can now place customer convenience at the forefront of their operations," said Kamran Zaki, president of Adyen North America, in the press release. “Eliminating boundaries across channels and geographies will help our customers expand within Canada and as they grow abroad. In addition, Canada is now easily accessible for businesses from other countries.”

Canada-based merchants can access all of Adyen's platform capabilities, including card acquiring for Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, UnionPay, Discover and Diners, Interac Debit for digital and in-store payments, and all the major wallets, including Alipay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and WeChat Pay. Adyen noted that the expansion into Canada boosts the company's global footprint, which already includes North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific.

Ayden's expansion into Canada comes as Walmart is boosting its services in that country. Last week, Walmart Canada announced that it has expanded its mobile pickup service in 22 additional stores. The company plans to expand the feature to all Walmart Canada Grocery Pickup store locations sometime next year.

“Walmart is always looking for innovative approaches to help our customers save time and money, and we’re constantly trying new things,” Lee Tappenden, president and CEO of Walmart Canada, said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to offer the mobile check-in technology to customers, potentially shaving valuable minutes off their online grocery pickup experience. Early next year, we’ll also trial Pickup Towers — another way we are using our stores to offer convenience and time-saving options to our customers.”
