Dutch payments platform Adyen has enabled Interac Debit on Mobile for in-browser and in-app payments for merchants in Canada.

Adyen claims to be “one of the first to market with Interac Debit on Mobile via Apple Pay and Google Pay”.

At the same time, Adyen expanded its alliance with on-demand food delivery service firm foodora Canada.

Adyen president of North America Kamran Zaki said: “Part of our core value lies in our speed to market and the ability to provide local payment offerings on a global scale.

“We are excited to continue to work with foodora as they introduce new payment offerings, which will ultimately enhance their customers’ buying experience.”

Under the partnership, foodora will be able to accept Interac Debit payments through digital wallets. These include Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Commenting on the development, foodora Canada managing director David Albert said: “Expanding our partnership with Adyen and enabling Interac Debit transactions to grow our payment method options for our customers is a natural fit.”

Adyen expanded into Canada last year.

The launch enabled Canadian merchants to access Interac Debit for digital and in-store payments.

Earlier this year, the firm launched an open banking payment method as an alternative to card transactions.
