Adyen to Process ‘Crowdfunding’ Payments for Indiegogo
March 4, 2013
Dutch e-commerce payments provider Adyen today said it has been chosen by Indiegogo to process online payments outside the U.S. San Francisco-based Indiegogo specializes in “crowdfunding”—pooling small individual contributions over the Internet to fund a range of initiatives that could include startup funding, political campaigns, disaster relief, R&D, scientific research and many others. Adyen will process online payments for Indiegogo in Europe and Canada. In addition to card payments, the Amsterdam-based processor said it will support payments to Indiegogo via Giropay, iDEAL, Trustpay, Sofortuberweisung and others, depending on the geographical source of the payment.
“Adyen’s payment solutions help thousands of online merchants like Indiegogo expand their international operations, grow their customer base and tap into the global e-commerce marketplace,” said Peter Caparso, president of Adyen North America. “With campaigns and contributions already coming to Indiegogo from all four corners of the world, we look forward to supporting them with global payment solutions that enhance their localization efforts.”
