Afterpay is working with Adyen to process payments across key markets including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Europe, US and the UK to support the company’s global growth and momentum.
Adyen’s global reach and focus on enterprise businesses as an acquirer provides Afterpay with the capability needed for its fast growing business.
Adyen and Afterpay began their local payment method partnership in 2018. A number of Adyen’s merchants already offer Afterpay’s instalment payments – including MandM Direct, Revolution Beauty, and Superdry – with more expected to come online.
The payment service is now available to Adyen merchants in the UK, France, Italy and Spain.
