Global financial technology platform, Adyen has announced the launch of its first in-house designed terminals, delivering on demand for mobile, discrete, reliable and affordable solutions with long-lasting battery, accepting payments spanning a tap, dip, or swipe.
Adyen chief operating officer, Kamran Zaki said, “Adyen’s commitment is to help businesses realise their ambitions faster, and creating our own terminals is the latest way we’re delivering on this promise. We always innovate based on customer feedback to deliver superior experiences with speed and flexibility. With our in-person payments offering, businesses have a full suite of terminals to choose from, enabling them to pick the best one to meet their specific needs.”
The company thoughtfully considered the model’s design details, ensuring the sound, look and feel speak to Adyen’s standard of excellence across payment experiences. The devices run on Adyen’s single platform, which enables end-to-end control, tailored payment flows, and high speed of innovation at the point-of-sale.
Adyen vice president of product – in-person payments, Derk Busser added, “By taking ownership of the terminal design, Adyen is assuring we put customer needs at the heart of their functionality. Our goal is to continuously reduce friction within the consumer journey. By designing highly mobile devices, we’re empowering businesses to collect payments not only when behind a checkout counter – but anywhere. The breadth of use cases this mobility provides signifies an exciting development in advanced, in-person purchases.”
The first terminal in the suite is the NYC1, the most affordable and flexible device, which enables businesses to offer a fully customised payment flow in their own point of sale app. It’s ideal for businesses that have already invested in hardware like phones or tablets and want to add payments to their set-up.
The NYC1 terminal is available now in North America, with coverage extending to other regions soon.
The second is the AMS1, an all-in-one terminal with an Android operating system that businesses can use to accept payments as well as run their own business applications. By consolidating applications, store employees can perform tasks such as accessing their cash register, managing inventory, and accepting payments on a single device.
The AMS1 is ideal for enterprise and platform businesses that want to be able to access operational apps via one device. The terminal will be globally available later this year, starting with Europe and North America.
