Payments made by shoppers via electronic commerce (like websites, web shops, social networks) for either goods or services provided by merchants. These payments are usually made using cards or local payment methods that have been optimized for ecommerce.
Other types of electronic payments are in-app payments and point-of-sale payments. Merchants usually require a payment service provider to process these payments. Adyen allows its merchants to accept omnichannel payments (ecommerce, in app, and in store).
