Point-of-sale payments (or In-store payments)

Payments made by shoppers via point-of-sale systems to buy products or services from merchants on a physical location (for example, a store or a ticketing booth). These payments are usually made with cards (swipe, ICC, or contactless).

Other types of electronic payments include ecommerce and in-app, which are based on similar infrastructure and usually require a payment service provider for merchants to automate and maintain these payments. Adyen allows its merchants to accept payments across all possible channels (ecommerce, in an app and in a store).
