Get started with Adyen

This guide shows you how to start accepting payments in your webshop, app, or store. The key steps are below, split into business (legal and commercial) and technical (integration and testing) flows. To make the application as easy as possible, our Support Team is here to help at any step of the journey.

The steps from creating a test account until completing your live account application typically take about a week. Some business and technical steps can be completed in parallel. 

It is possible to do the business steps prior to the technical steps, but not advised to do the technical steps prior to the business steps in case there are any issues with your application.
