Adyen claims its payment solutions — which span online, mobile and in-store — provide a smooth transaction experience for merchants, because they only have to interact with Adyen and not any third party suppliers.
The company offers merchants end-to-end payment infrastructure connecting them with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and others, as well as support for mobile wallet services including Alibaba's Alipay, Apple's Apple Pay and Alphabet's Google Pay.
"Eliminating boundaries across channels and geographies will help our customers expand within Canada and as they grow abroad," Kamran Zaki, president of Adyen's North American unit, said in a statement Tuesday. "In addition, Canada is now easily accessible for businesses from other countries."
Traders gushed over Adyen's stock market debut earlier this year, with shares of the company nearly doubling in value on the day. Its stock price is currently up more than 18 percent since its Amsterdam float.
The company garnered much attention prior to its initial public offering when it was chosen by eBay to be the e-commerce's main payment processor, taking over from PayPal. Adyen will process most of eBay's payments from 2021 onward.
Adyen has been a profitable company since 2011 — five years after it was founded — an unusual phenomenon in both the financial technology industry and the broader tech sector as a whole.
The firm, which is currently valued at $15.9 billion, recently posted first-half net profit of 48.2 million euros ($54.7 million), up 75 percent from the previous year.
One of Adyen's fiercest rivals, Stripe, last month said it had upped its valuation to $20 billion after a $245 million capital injection led by Tiger Global. Much speculation has been made about a potential IPO for the firm, but it has consistently ruled out plans to do so.
