Since the company operates internationally, it needed apayments providerthat could help enable it to accept the right payment methods in that country, and scale quickly and globally.

We were specifically looking for someone who could facilitate payments in the countries we needed them in, offer all the different payment methods and make sure the approval rates stacked up and were maintained - and Adyen was able to deliver on all three,” said Ksenia Kouchnirenko, director of strategy and business development.

As a subscription-based merchant, it is crucial for SurveyMonkey that recurring payments are as frictionless as possible.

This includes offering local customers the option to set up subscriptions using their preferred payment methods.

SurveyMonkey has also benefited from our rich transaction data, which it uses tooptimize paymentsevery step of the way.
