Ready to integrate?

To support this payment method we offer an integration in which the payment page is hosted by Adyen. However, to ensure a seamless experience, the customer is directed straight from your site to the payment method, so the customer never lands on Adyen's page.

Directory Look-up

Directory Look-up is an additional integration which enables you to dynamically provide a list of the most relevant payment methods to your customers, based on their location or basket value.
