Payment methods lookup (or Directory Lookup)

When integrating an ecommerce website or a mobile app with the Adyen payments platform, a merchant can 'fetch' all available payment methods from Adyen. In return, the Adyen payments platform responds with a list of card networks and local payment methods supported for the specified payment amount in the current region. The merchant can then display this targeted list to a shopper.

The process of fetching available payment methods from a directory of all payment methods is called Directory Lookup.
