Adyen expands POS offering to Singapore
Dutch payments platform Adyen has expanded its point of sale (POS) offering to Singapore.
The move expands the firm’s in-store coverage from 1,500 cities across 21 countries to more than 4,000 cities across 27 countries.
Adyen said its in-store solution will allow merchants to unify their retail channels in a single payments system.
The new clients of the firm include ASICS, Schuh, Lush, City Sightseeing, Dunkin’ Donuts, Hema, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Coolblue, and Action.
Adyen chief commercial officer Roelant Prins said: “Adding Adyen POS enables retailers to recognise returning customers and curate more memorable in-store experiences. With Adyen’s single payment platform managing all customer payments, the traditional boundaries to unified commerce are removed and online payments can be unlocked in-store.
“For example, customers can refund ecommerce orders in-store, or in-store purchases can be linked to a customer’s digital account automatically. Customers can also use saved cards on their devices to enhance mobility in the checkout. This creates an experience that meets the demands of today’s customer and increases the likelihood of repeat business for merchants.”
At the same time, the firm unveiled Terminal API, which supports transactions on cloud or internet and allows shoppers to make payments from any device or location on the shop floor.
“Terminal API makes life easier for merchants, creating a more flexible infrastructure that eliminates compatibility issues between different local networks, legacy systems or cash registers. Ultimately this saves them both time and money,” Prins noted.
