Dutch e-commerce payments processor Adyen said this week it has established a presence in France that will enable e-commerce companies around the world that want to sell to French consumers a smoother entry to the market. Adyen, which grew out of European e-commerce payments pioneer Bibit, specializes in providing local payment methods to merchants interested in expanding globally. Having a physical presence in one of the biggest European economies will enhance the expertise Adyen can offer its clients regarding operating in France, according to Peter Caparso, president of Adyen in North America.

“Adyen is committed to providing our merchant base the proper local expertise and guidance in assisting and accelerating their global monetization efforts,” Caparso told “The French market is one of the largest markets in Europe and, therefore, naturally very important for the typical Adyen merchant. Adyen takes a truly local approach to this market by having the best local people in an office in Paris as well as having direct integrations into the French card networks. This ensures that Adyen makes it seamless for business to be successful in the French market.”
