Monetize large volumes of API transactions across continents, currencies, and payment methods

We are happy to announce we’ve added Adyen to our portfolio of payment gateway integrations, making it easier for more companies to monetize their APIs. Accepting and managing payments internationally is made even more complicated by exchange rates and local taxes, laws, and regulations – in addition to deciding which of the constantly evolving choices of payment methods to accept. Our new Adyen integration simplifies this process for large enterprises with high volumes of monthly API transactions and companies that do business across continents, currencies, and payment methods. This feature is now available to all API providers on 3scale plans that include billing (Power, Pro, and Enterprise).

Adyen delivers a frictionless payment platform for international businesses to deal with online, mobile, and in-store transactions. It supports about 250 payment methods around the world, including the most popular debit and credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express as well as regional cards, alternative payment methods such as SEPA credit transfer and Bitcoin, and digital wallets like PayPal and Apple Pay.

Adyen is one of the fastest growing companies in the payments industry with over $50 billion of processed transactions in 2015 and over 100% growth year-on-year. A wide variety of companies including air travel, automotive, telecommunication, and software companies as well as public institutions have already chosen Adyen for managing one-off transactions and recurring payments.

“This integration makes 3scale even more attractive to API providers already using Adyen, as well as API providers looking for a payment platform to handle high transaction volumes across the globe. At 3scale, we know that accepting and managing payments can be complicated for large organizations that do business internationally. Adyen delivers a frictionless payment platform for global businesses to deal with online, mobile and in-store transactions painlessly.”
– Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale
