Dropbox partners with Adyen for European payments

Cloud-based storage provider Dropbox is partnering with global payments company Adyen to offer more local payment methods in Europe.

Dropbox will now offer direct debit payments in 12 European countries including Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain, bypassing the need for a bank card to use the service.

After the rollout of direct debit payments in Europe, the company will look to offer more localised payment options in Europe and other markets including Latin America and Asia. Dropbox has yet to confirm which other payment methods are being introduced, but a Venturebeat report suggested that iDEAL, Sofort, Giropay and Klarna might be contenders.

While in the US, Dropbox could rely on credit card payments, offering the likes of PayPal and Discover as alternatives. With software-as-a-service technologies expected to reach $75 billion in global sales in 2015, the company is making it easier for customers in new markets to access its premium 1TB paid plan.
