Adyen payment processing - has anyone heard of this?

Hello everyone, 


I've just made my first hire and when I paid via credit card, the payment was taken from a company called Adyen UK. Has anyone had the same? 

There is no mention of Adyen on the Upwork payments sites, so I contacted Upwork who claimed they have never heard of Adyen. All very odd. 


If anyone knows anything, it'd most grateful for your feedback. 


Best wishes,

Odd! They are a 'payment' company:


But I don't see how they could have been involved in your transaction unless you have signed up in some way. Or perhaps your bank has? (Guessing on my part).

Odd was exactly what I thought! Smiley Happy


I've not (knowingly) signed up to Adyen. I am a little frustrated that Upwork takes quite a long time to respond as I am getting pressured to resolve the issue. 

The only response so far was, they've not heard of Adyen and if I can supply more information. I've replied so, let's  hope they'll get back to me soon. 


Thanks so much for the quick response!

Hi Annete,


I have checked with our Financial team and can confirm that Adyen is our international processor.
