Dutch payments firm Adyen announced the launch of its first in-house designed terminals which was designed to facilitate diverse payment use cases. The terminal range marks the latest step forward in Adyen’s growing unified commerce offering.
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.
The first terminal in the suite is the NYC1, the most affordable and flexible device within the in-person payment range.
The device 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.
A key use case is platforms who want to offer a simple and affordable payment device to their small business customers. There is also strong usability among enterprises who see mobility as a way to deliver more seamless in-person experiences – from mitigating long lines at checkout to freeing up sales associates to provide more personalised service.
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 all on a single device.
It simplifies day-to-day operations while also providing the same benefits as the NYC1.
The AMS1 is ideal for enterprise and platform businesses that want to be able to access all operational apps via one device.
The terminal will be globally available later this year, starting with Europe and North America.
“Adyen’s commitment is to help businesses realize 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,”
said Kamran Zaki, COO at Adyen.
“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 purchase,”
said Derk Busser, VP of Product, In-Person Payments.
