AMSTERDAM | Adyen, the global payments solutions company, has announced that Shuttle, its popular chip & PIN mobile point-of-sale solution, has been selected to process mobile point-of-sale ticket sales at TNW Conference 2013, The Next Web’s flagship European conference in Amsterdam. Shuttle will also be used to process payments for food and beverage purchases at the conference, which is attended by around 2500 visitors and all the hottest startup companies globally between 25 -26th April 2013.
Adyen Shuttle is a mobile payment terminal that enables merchants to accept chip & PIN card transactions at the point-of-sale, connecting via Bluetooth to any Android or iOS mobile device. The solution is fully EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) compliant, meaning that it can process payments for all credit and debit cards. Crucially, the Adyen Shuttle terminal utilises the same Internet-based reporting interface as Adyen’s online and mobile payment solutions, meaning that merchants can implement a multichannel payment strategy through one, simple integration.
Patrick de Laive, Co-Founder, The Next Web, explained, “For an organizer or business owner it is expensive and often painfully difficult to accept on-site debit and credit card payments. The Adyen Shuttle erases this friction. It is easy to set up, reliable and accepts all card payments as part of an elegant solution. There are simply no more excuses for event organisers not to accept card payments.”
Since its European launch in December 2012, Adyen has seen phenomenal demand for its Shuttle MPOS solution across a very wide range of industry sectors and from businesses of all sizes – small specialist stores right up to multinational brands. Shuttle is currently being used to take card payments at point-of-sale by taxi and delivery firms, market traders, high street fashion retailers, driving schools, bed & breakfasts, boat rental, event organisers, luxury retailers and healthcare brands amongst many others.
All in Solo, a driving school based in Rotterdam, recently started using Adyen to take online reservations for driving lessons and uses Shuttle to take payment at point-of-sale. Rinus Verheij, Managing Director, All in Solo, said “The Adyen payment solution and Shuttle mobile point-of-sale device provides us with a low cost way to easily accept payments for lessons in our driving school cars. The solution will help us grow our business and increases security for our drivers who no longer have to carry cash in cars. The Adyen Shuttle is an essential part of the professional service we deliver to our customers.”
“Shuttle has been developed to bring complete mobility to point-of-sale commerce, and for events such as TNW Conference 2013, it makes accepting credit and debit card transactions easy,” explained Roelant Prins, CCO, Adyen. “We have been delighted with uptake for the Shuttle solution, which offers a natural extension of our online and mobile payment solution, and provides complete integration across all sales channels.”
