Adyen and Billie Collaborate to Bring B2B BNPL Services to Europe

In a strategic move, FinTech leader Adyen has joined forces with B2B payments platform Billie to introduce buy now, pay later (BNPL) payment solutions to online shops and marketplaces across Europe, as stated in PYMNTS.

The partnership enables Adyen’s clientele to seamlessly integrate Billie’s B2B BNPL solution in Germany, Austria, Sweden, and the Netherlands, with plans to expand to more countries in the future, as stated in a press release on Tuesday (Feb. 20).

This collaboration is poised to address common challenges in B2B commerce, including cash flow management, payment default prevention, fraud mitigation, and simplification of collection processes, the release highlights.

By leveraging Billie’s B2B BNPL solution, businesses can move away from traditional corporate credit cards, benefiting from real-time credit approvals, robust fraud protection, and improved conversion rates, according to the release.

The integration of Billie’s solution into the Adyen platform is designed to streamline online payments for buyers through eCommerce and mCommerce channels. Business buyers can now make purchases and defer payments for up to 30 days, while merchants receive payment upon shipment of goods.

Adyen, known for its comprehensive online payment solutions, provides access to over 150 payment methods through a single platform tailored for enterprise-level transactions.

While Germany, Austria, Sweden, and the Netherlands are the first markets to experience this integration, France, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland are expected to follow suit in the near future.

Christian Grobe, co-founder and co-CEO of Billie, expressed optimism about the partnership, stating, “Our collaboration will empower thousands of merchants across Europe to expand their customer base, modernize their B2B payment systems, and venture into new markets with confidence.”

PYMNTS Intelligence’s research indicates that BNPL solutions can simplify and expedite B2B payments, offering similar benefits to businesses as they do to individual consumers. By breaking down substantial payments into smaller, manageable installments, BNPL can help businesses navigate the challenges of inventory acquisition and cost management, as outlined in the PYMNTS Intelligence report “Is BNPL the Next Driver for B2B Growth?”
