Create customer payment

Customers API v2
POSThttps://api.mollie.com/v2/customers/*customerId*/payments

Creates a payment for the customer.

Linking customers to payments enables a number of Mollie Checkout features, including:

  • Keeping track of payment preferences for your customers.
  • Enabling your customers to charge a previously used credit card with a single click.
  • Improved payment insights in your dashboard.
  • Recurring payments.

Note

This endpoint is a shortcut for creating a payment with a customerId parameter.

Parameters

Replace customerId in the endpoint URL by the customer’s ID, for example cst_8wmqcHMN4U.

This endpoint accepts the same parameters as the Create payment endpoint. For recurring payments, the following parameters have notable differences in comparison to regular payments:

sequenceTypestringoptional
Enables recurring payments. If set to first, a first payment for the customer is created, allowing the customer to agree to automatic recurring charges taking place on their account in the future. If set to recurring, the customer is charged automatically.
redirectUrlstringoptional
If the recurringType parameter is set to recurring, this parameter can be omitted. Since the payment will take place without customer interaction, a redirect is not needed.

Access token parameters

If you are using organization access tokens or are creating an OAuth app, you have to specify which profile you are creating payments for using the profileId parameter. Organizations can have multiple profiles for each of their websites. See Profiles API for more information.

For these authentication methods the optional testmode parameter is available as well to enable test mode.

profileIdstringrequired for access tokens
testmodebooleanoptional

Response

201 application/hal+json

A payment object is returned, as described in Get payment.
