Amsterdam-based Adyen has teamed with Tokyo-based JCB International to enable Adyen merchants in 28 European countries to accept payments both online and in stores from over 84 million JCB card members worldwide.
In 1981 JCB became the only Japan-based payment card brand to go global, and since then JCBI has been steadily growing its presence in Europe by expanding its merchant network. Currently, cardholders can pay with JCB card at about 26 million merchants worldwide including several million merchants in Europe. The Netherlands is a strategically important country for JCBI, as this is a major destination market for European JCB card members, while in France, Adyen will be the first JCB Licensee to be able to offer JCB acceptance to French merchants. The partnership with Adyen is key for the expansion of JCB in France and will improve the card acceptance for JCB cardholders visiting this country.
Adyen holds full acquiring licenses for Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners, Discover and Union Pay schemes enabling its platform to process payments from any sales channels including online, mobile, and point-of-sale (POS). The Platform is highly scalable and can be completely customized to meet any merchant requirement. Adyen processes over 250 local payment methods and 187 transaction currencies used on six continents, making it the ideal partner for international expansion.
Adyen is headquartered in The Netherlands, with offices in London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, San Francisco, Boston, Sao Paulo, and Singapore. The company processed more than $US 14 billion in payments transactions in 2013.
