SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 7 September, 2017 - Adyen, the payments platform of choice for the world's leading companies, today announced an expansion of its current payment processing offerings in Singapore via a direct credit card acquiring license for Visa and MasterCard.

Merchants also benefit from Adyen's on-the-ground expertise, including optimization of local market conditions, ensuring merchants increase opportunities for conversions.
"Adyen was founded on a vision that optimizing the payment cycle would lead to greater benefits for merchants and end customers. Our direct credit card acquiring capability makes it possible for our customers to benefit from the best acceptance and authorization rates.

We are better equipped to help Singapore-based businesses achieve complete control of their payment process -- optimizing revenue, creating a better customer experience and helping companies deal with issues more quickly and efficiently," said Warren HAYASHI, President, Adyen, Asia-Pacific.
"We work closely with Adyen for our payment process. Now, with the expansion of Adyen's service offerings to include direct acquiring, we are presented with an end-to-end perspective on the payment flow. The new offering will allow us to make tremendous improvements in terms of speed and control which in turn will lead us to make more data-driven enhancements to the overall payment experience as we rapidly expand and acquire new customers," said Chen Chow YEOH, Co-Founder of Fave.
