LAS VEGAS, USA & SAO PAULO, BR | Adyen, the global payment solutions company, has today announced at Imagine eCommerce, the world’s premier Magento developer conference, that an Adyen Payment Module is now available on the Magento ecommerce platform in Brazil. The move follows significant growth in merchant adoption of Magento, in addition to supporting Adyen’s own rapidly expanding international and Brazilian customer base in the region.
The Magento ecommerce platform provides merchants with unprecedented flexibility and control over the look, content and functionality of their ecommerce store. With many Magento merchants already using the Adyen Payment Module in the US, Europe and Asia, Adyen’s internal team has worked closely with E-Smart, a local Brazilian Magento provider, to develop an offering tailored to meet the rigours of the Brazilian market. Integrated into the Adyen Payment Module for Magento are a wide range of features, including Instalments, Portuguese language functionality and all the most relevant local payment methods.
Vinicius Pessin, CEO, E-Smart, explains, “E-Smart works alongside merchants through every step of the process to develop ecommerce offerings that can handle the complexities of the Brazilian market. Together with local, like-minded partners such as Adyen, we are able to provide merchants with the strategic ecommerce support they need to allow them to focus on other core business requirements. A number of our customers using the Magento platform have already begun successfully processing payments using the Adyen module, including the likes of GrupoSTR, Tonini, TimeSuplementos and Universalcosmeticos.”
The Brazilian market poses a variety of challenges to ecommerce merchants from a payments perspective. For instance, card processing via a Brazilian acquiring partner is crucial as 30% of all issued consumer debit and credit cards have not been enabled for international processing. In addition, local payment methods such as Boleto and instalment-based transactions have rapidly grown in popularity. Paying by instalment now makes up almost 80 percent of all ecommerce purchases in Brazil.
“The integration of features specific to the Brazilian market on the Adyen Payment Module for Magento provides merchants with an easy way to optimise payment processes for their Brazilian customers,” explained Roelant Prins, CCO, Adyen. “Adyen understands that the ability to manage acquirer relationships through a single payment module, whilst also providing a comprehensive payment overview, is extremely attractive for merchants looking to simplify processes. We are delighted to make this announcement at Imagine Ecommerce, and look forward to working with many more Magento merchants in the future.”
Adyen & E-Smart are attending Magento’s International Imagine Conference in Las Vegas this week. For more information on the Adyen Magento Payment Module please contact Jean.Mies@adyen.com
