Benefits of payments via the Mollie Checkout

  • The payment screens are suitable for web, smartphones and tablets.
  • All payment methods you have enabled are – when relevant – shown to your customers. A newly activated payment method is available immediately for all of your visitors.
  • If the customer’s first choice of payment method is not successful, it’s very easy for the customer to select and try another one. If a customer appears to not have sufficient credit on a checking account a retry by credit card could easily be attempted. We handle this for you without asking you to implement any extra APIs.
  • Full support for QR codes.
  • Mollie optimizes the order of payment methods. For Dutch customers we know to list iDEAL at the top while for Belgians we start off with the payment method Bancontact. A lot of effort goes into this and we optimize this using A/B-testing. This way we improve your conversion without your effort.

Single Click payments for returning customers

Single Click payments increase conversion. This feature allows your customers who have paid with credit card to complete their next payments with just one click. A recognizable credit card with information gathered from the customers’ previous payment is presented and allows the customer to reuse this card.

  1. Create a unique customer using the Customers API.
  2. Store the customer’s id safely in your database. It’s needed for performing Payments API calls for the customer.
  3. Specify the customerId parameter each time you create a payment for this customer.
  4. Returning customers are now shown the credit cards they have used in the past, enabling them to charge their card of choice with a single click.
