Create mandate

Mandates API v2
POSThttps://api.mollie.com/v2/customers/*customerId*/mandates

Create a mandate for a specific customer. Mandates allow you to charge a customer’s credit card, PayPal account or bank account recurrently.

It is only possible to create mandates for IBANs and PayPal billing agreements with this endpoint. To create mandates for credit cards, have your customers perform a ‘first payment’ with their credit card.

Note

Created mandates are unique to your account and can not be transferred to other accounts.

Parameters

Replace customerId in the endpoint URL by the customer’s ID, for example /v2/customers/cst_8wmqcHMN4U/mandates.
