Customize payment descriptions

Include order details such as order number and customer name in the payment descriptions that appear in your Mollie Dashboard.

All payments are listed on the Payments page of your Mollie Dashboard. A payment's description is displayed in its Details column. It can also appear on your customers' bank statements depending on the payment method used and the customer's bank.

By default, the payment description includes the PrestaShop, PrestaShop order ID, Mollie order status, API method used, and refund status.
