Adyen’s pitch is that its technology enables payment via a single page and single click by making nifty use of AJAX and, the company claims, is shown to boost conversion rates and reduce costs by as much as 50%. Additionally, Adyen’s system offers tools to measure and optimize online conversions, and merchants can control the look and feel of the payment page. It’s already been used to power Barclaycard’s new SmartPay payment service and has also been implemented by Vodafone and Groupon, amongst others.
With regards to Spil, gamers can purchase virtual items and credits for various games – you know the sort of thing. Similar to, for example, Farmville on Facebook, players of Spil’s Happy Harvest and other titles can buy credits using Adyen.
