PrestaShop: Set up subscriptions

Understand and set up subscriptions.

Understand subscriptions

Explore how Mollie supports recurring payments for regular billing using subscriptions directly through PrestaShop.



  • Minimize chargeback risk by clearly communicating the charge amount and frequency to your customers.
  • Ensure customer awareness by sending advance notifications before each payment, for example via email.

Supported payment methods

Customers who buy a subscription from your shop must use a supported payment method to make their initial payment. This authorizes future subscription payments as well.

  • Credit/Debit cards: If your customer initially pays with a credit/debit card, all subsequent payments will be by credit/debit card as well.
  • Other payment methods: If your customer initially pays with any other payment method, all subsequent payments will be by SEPA Direct Debit.

Your customers can use these payment methods for the initial subscription payment:

  • Apple Pay
  • Bancontact
  • Belfius pay button
  • Credit/debit cards
  • EPS
  • Giropay
  • iDEAL
  • KBC payment button
  • MyBank
  • PayPal
  • SOFORT bank transfer

  4. Scroll down to the Subscriptions section and select the default shipping option from the Select shipping option to use in subscription orders drop-down menu.

Beta-release: do not change the default shipping option after you have selected it, as this breaks all current subscriptions.

Create subscription products

Offer your products as subscriptions to increase recurring revenue from customers.



Do not use "Cart rules" with subscriptions as this leads to errors caused by incorrect pricing.
