An overview of the steps from signing up for Adyen for Platforms to going live.

Step 1: Get in touch with us

Contact our Support Team to check if your use cases are eligible for Adyen for Platforms. We’ll get in touch with you to learn about:

  • Your business model.
  • The regions or countries in which you are you going to process payments.

We'll help you determine whether our current platform capabilities are a good fit for your use cases.

Step 2: Get your test accounts

When we confirm that Adyen for Platforms is a good fit for your use cases, your Adyen contact will provide you with your Adyen test credentials.

Your Adyen test credentials include:

  • API credentials for the following:
    • Legal Entity Management API: You'll use this API to create and manage legal entities that contain the information required for verification checks.
    • Configuration API and Transfers API: You'll use these APIs to create account holders and balance accounts, schedule payouts, transfer funds, or make one-off payouts.
    • Checkout API: You'll use this API to process payments for your users.
  • Username and password to the following dashboards:
    • The Customer Area, a dashboard where you can view insights into all payment activities and configurations for your merchant account.
    • The Balance Platform Customer Area, a dashboard where you can view the resources in your balance platform such as account holders and their balances.

Step 3: Design your implementation

After we identify your use cases, your Adyen contact will work with you to design your implementation. You'll need to decide on the following:

  • How to onboard and collect data from your users, ensuring that your platform is able to collect required information and accept document uploads.
  • When to split payments so you can send the fees to your platform and the remaining to your user.
  • How to do payouts.

Step 4: Build your integration

When you have your test accounts, start building your Adyen for Platforms integration. Refer to our integration checklist.

Step 5: Apply for your live account

After you have built and tested your integration in the test environment, you're ready to go live.

Reach out to your Adyen contact to take your account live.

Step 6: Configure your live account

The setup and configuration from your test Adyen for Platforms account is not replicated to your live Adyen for Platforms account. You need to replicate your test account setup in the live environment.

Follow our go-live checklist to make sure your integration is ready.
