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

Step 1: Get in touch with us

Reach out to your Adyen contact to register your interest for Adyen payouts. We'll get in touch with you to learn about:

  • Your business model.
  • The regions or countries in which you are operating and planning to make payouts.

Step 2: Design your implementation

Once your use case is defined, your Adyen contact will work with you to design your implementation. The design includes determining:

  • The setup of your business based on how your brand interacts with your users, their customers, and the card schemes.
  • How to onboard your business, ensuring that you can collect and provide the required information.
  • How to fund your payouts.
  • How to pay out.

Step 3: Get your test accounts

After you have designed your implementation, your Adyen contact will provide you with your Adyen test credentials.

Your 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, transfer funds, or make payouts.
  • 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 4: Create users in your Balance Platform Customer Area

Create users in your Balance Platform Customer Area to allow members of your organization to manage different functionalities in your Adyen account.

Step 5: Build your integration

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

Step 6: 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 7: Configure your live account

The setup and configuration from your test account is not replicated to your live 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.
