AMSTERDAM, August 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Adyen (AMS: ADYEN), the global fintech platform of choice for large enterprises, is pleased to announce the launch of its first in-house designed terminals. Innovated to facilitate a variety of payment use cases, the terminal lineup marks the latest advancement in Adyen’s growing unified commerce offering. Running on the company’s single platform, the new devices remain inherently flexible, to meet a rapidly changing payment landscape and ever-changing customer needs.
“Adyen’s commitment is to help businesses realize their ambitions faster, and building our own endpoints is the latest way we’re delivering on that promise,” said Kamran Zaki, COO at Adyen. “We are always innovating based on customer feedback to deliver superior experiences with speed and flexibility. With our pay-in-person offering, businesses have a full suite of terminals to choose from, allowing them to choose the one that best meets their specific needs.”
Adyen remains focused on driving innovation in unified commerce, ranging from enterprise to SMB via platforms. The devices fulfill customer wishes to be mobile, discreet, reliable, affordable, with long battery life and accepting payments with a click, dip or swipe. The company has carefully considered the design details of the model, ensuring that the sound, look and feel all match Adyen’s standard of excellence in all payment experiences. The devices run on Adyen’s unique platform, which enables end-to-end control, personalized payment flows and high innovation speed at the point of sale.

By designing highly mobile devices, we empower businesses to collect payments not just behind a checkout counter, but anywhere. of the use cases that this mobility provides means an exciting development in advanced in-person shopping.”
The first terminal in the suite is the NYC1, the most affordable and flexible device in the in-person payment range. The device allows businesses to offer a fully personalized checkout flow within their own point-of-sale application. It’s ideal for businesses that have already invested in hardware like phones or tablets and want to add payments to their setup. A key use case is for platforms that want to offer a simple and affordable payment device to their small business customers. There’s also a strong user-friendliness among businesses that see mobility as a way to deliver smoother in-person experiences — from reducing long checkout lines to freeing up sales associates to provide more personalized service. The NYC1 terminal is available now in North Americawith coverage soon expanding to other regions.
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 apps. By consolidating apps, store employees can perform tasks such as accessing their cash register, managing inventory, and accepting payments on a single device. It simplifies daily operations while offering the same advantages as the NYC1. The AMS1 is ideal for companies and platforms that want to be able to access all operational applications through a single device. The terminal will be available worldwide later this year, starting with Europe and North America.
With the NYC1 and AMS1 line of terminals now in Adyen’s in-person payments repertoire, the company is eager to identify forward-thinking ways to improve consumer journeys.
