System messages

Stay informed of important events related to your Adyen account.

System messages inform you of important events related to your Adyen account, for example scheduled maintenance, service downtime, chargebacks, or fraud.

All system messages appear in the System messages widget in your Customer Area. You can also subscribe to get system messages by email so you don't have to log in to the Customer Area to get these important updates.

There are two types of system messages:

  • Service messages: live updates about payment processing with Adyen and related services.
    For example, service disruption, scheduled maintenance, platform changes, deprecation of firmware, or payment method availability.
  • Automated messages: transaction-level messages generated automatically.
    For example, chargeback or fraud notifications, or when your server doesn't accept webhook notifications we send.

Admin users get emails for all types of service messages by default. You can manage your subscription to system messages in your Customer Area, but you are not able to manage subscriptions for other users.

Required roles

To be able to see, subscribe to, and unsubscribe from system messages, your user must have one of the following roles:

  • Merchant admin
  • Merchant financial
  • Risk admin
  • Merchant dispute management
  • Merchant system messages role

Get system messages by email

You can subscribe to system messages at the company level and at the merchant account level.

You will receive system messages at the email address linked to your user.
