Adyen is a payment processing company that specializes in international payments. Adyen processes payments via 250+ payment methods, over 140 currencies from all over the world.


The following are the prerequisites for configuring Adyen with Chargebee

1. Setup Roles/Privileges in Adyen

Ensure that your ‘Adyen Webservice user' has the following roles enabled


  • API PCI Payments Role
  • Merchant PAL Webservice Role
  • Merchant Recurring Role
  • If you are going to use Chargebee API + Adyen.js (Easy Encryption), you also need to enable the API Client side Encryption Payments Role in addition to the above-mentioned roles.


2. Enter ‘Capture Delay'


The time between the authorization of payment and the capture of a payment is called the Capture Delay. Chargebee requires the Capture Delay to be set to Manual in Adyen.

To configure Capture Delay, Navigate to Settings > Merchant Settings > Capture Delay and select the Manual option.
