Soundcloud has issued statement to TNW NEWS that it will be using Adyen to power its subscriptions service:
“We identified issues with our current payments system for Premium subscriptions, the original system was implemented when SoundCloud was a much smaller entity. We identified a new payments service provider, Adyen, that was more suitable to today’s needs (Premium subscriptions in multiple currencies) and the future (increasing Premium subscriptions). We undertook a review of our payments service provider alongside other solutions. We needed to find a provider that was more optimal for our high growth rate. It doesn’t affect other payment solutions by third parties using our API, such as Ganxy and Vibe desk or other distribution solutions such as Tunecore.”
It provides really helpful customer service.
Adyen provides REST API for integration having complex integration comparing to PayPal or wepay. Adyen is for you if you need more and more payment options and if you are working with multiple payment methods. It provides flexible payment options that you can enable or disable any time from its dashboard.
As It provides flexible payment options that you can enable or disable any time from its dashboard, I am personally recommend to use this payment service as being merchant.
