Using Adyen on Shopify

Adyen is a payment gateway for enterprise-level businesses to accept payments. For more information, refer to the Get started with Adyen and configuring third-party payment providers guides.

To ensure accurate data management, you can integrate Shopify, including Adyen's payments data, with your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. This integration ensures smoother data management and synchronization between your systems.

Ineligible or incompatible features for using Adyen

Certain features are unavailable or incompatible with the Adyen on Shopify integration:

  • Local payment methods (LPMs): Not all local payment methods offered by Adyen are available through the Adyen on Shopify integration.
  • Fraud tools: While using Adyen on Shopify, you won’t have access to fraud tools available on Shopify Payments, such as dispute management, card testing prevention, fraud control, and analytics. However, you can still use Shopify's fraud analysis and Shopify Flow to automate operations. Adyen offers its own fraud tools that might cost an additional fee.
  • Shopify Checkout: To use Adyen on Shopify, you need to use Shopify Checkout. If you’re on the Shopify Plus plan, then you need to use Checkout Extensibility.
