With the Customers API you can create simple minimal representations of your customers in the Mollie API.
For recurring payment processing, the Customers API is required. Tracking mandates, charging recurring payments, and creating subscriptions are all done on a per-customer basis.
For regular payment processing you can optionally ‘attach’ payments to a customer as well. This improves the hosted checkout experience for the customer, and improves the insights provided by the Mollie Dashboard.
The Customers API allows you to provide customer information. Although not required, we recommend at least providing a recognizable name for each customer. This makes it easier to manage your customers and their payments in the Mollie Dashboard.
For a step-by-step guide on charging your customers recurrently, refer to Recurring payments.
