Get balance

Balances API v2BETA
GEThttps://api.mollie.com/v2/balances/*balanceId*

When processing payments with Mollie, we put all pending funds — minus Mollie fees — on a balance. Once you have linked a bank account to your Mollie account, we can pay out your balance towards this bank account.

With the Balances API you can retrieve your current balance. The response includes two amounts:

  • The ‘pending amount’. These are payments that have been marked as ‘paid’, but are not yet available for paying out.
  • The ‘available amount’. This is the amount that you can get paid out to your bank account.

With instant payment methods like iDEAL, payments are moved to the available balance instantly. With slower payment methods, like credit card for example, it can take a few days before the funds are available on your balance. These funds will be shown under the ‘pending amount’ in the meanwhile.

Parameters

Replace balanceId in the endpoint URL by the balance ID, which can be retrieved by the List balances endpoint.
