Split payment authorization and capture

Authorize customer payments and capture funds separately to have more control over your store's cash flow management.

Mollie seamlessly supports Shopify functionality for separating payment authorization and capture. For instructions on how to configure the relevant Shopify settings, refer to these Shopify guides:

Understand Klarna and Mollie

Shopify's restrictions on third-party payment providers, like Mollie, impact Klarna order settlement and information in the Mollie Dashboard. Understanding these restrictions is important for Shopify store owners using Klarna, as it affects the order status, shipment, settlement, and order totals displayed in the Mollie Dashboard.

πŸ“˜

In Scandinavia, Mollie for Shopify accepts Klarna payments only in the currency of the Scandinavian country set as your store's address. To accept payments in multiple currencies, you need to create separate sub-stores with different store-address countries.

Understand Klarna order settlement information in your Mollie Dashboard

After your customer orders and pays with Klarna, the order status is immediately marked as Completed in your Mollie Dashboard, creating a shipment that you can find under Shipments when you open the order on the Orders page. Klarna invoices your customer immediately, and you receive your funds after the standard Klarna settlement delay.

Understand Klarna order totals in your Mollie Dashboard

Shopify does not share complete order details with payment service providers such as Mollie. Consequently, Mollie may apply a fee or subtract a discount from the Klarna order overview in your Mollie Dashboard to ensure accuracy of the total order amount. No further action is required on your part.

Mollie Onsite Cards

Optimise your checkout with Mollie’s Onsite Cards app for Shopify to deliver seamless customer experiences and boost conversion. You can collect your customers' card details directly by integrating into Shopify checkout. That means there’s no need to redirect buyers to an external payment page.

🚧

By installing onsite cards, this will override the default payment methods in your store. Please refer to the Shopify documentation for more details.

New merchants

New merchants have to install the new Onsite Cards app to ensure that the embedded payments option is offered during checkout.
