The Mollie payment gateway allows you to quickly and easily begin accepting donations online. The gateway provides your donors with an easy way to pay via a variety of payment methods. The gateway offers a modern interface and easy integration with support for recurring donations. The following article will describe how the plugin works and how you can begin accepting donations with Mollie today.

Getting Started with Mollie

In order to accept payments with Mollie using Give you will need to have an active Mollie account, the Mollie Give add-on, and the Give Core plugin installed and activated.

Click here for instructions on installing and activating Give Add-ons.

Note: You can always access your add-on purchase receipts, downloads, and licenses from your Give Account dashboard.

After the Mollie add-on is activated, go to “Donations > Settings” and click on the Payment Gateways tab. There you will see the default Payment Gateways (PayPal Standard, Test Payment, and Offline Donations). You should also see Mollie as an option as well. Click on the Mollie checkbox to enable it as an active payment gateway for your website.

Testing Mollie

We always recommend before accepting live donations that you first test the integration. To do this, place Give in Test Mode and then add the “Test API key” from the Mollie Dashboard to Give’s Mollie Settings screen.

Live Payments

To accept live payments ensure give is not in test mode and then copy the “Live API key” from the Mollie Dashboard to Give’s Mollie Settings screen.

Configuring Payment Methods for Mollie

The Mollie gateway can accept a variety of payment methods like iDEAL, SOFORT, as well as credit card, PayPal, and more. To configure the payment gateways you wish to accept in Give head over to you Mollie Dashboard and click on Settings:

The Mollie payment gateway settings screen.
The Mollie payment gateway settings screen.

On that screen you can toggle the gateways you wish to accept payments through:

Quick enable and disable payment payment methods within Mollie.
Quick enable and disable payment payment methods within Mollie.

When payment methods are toggled on or off you will see them appear on the Mollie payment screen after a donor submits their donation and is redirected.

Note: The available payment methods displayed on the Mollie screen depends on the currency being used. For example, the screen capture below displays all the available methods for Euro. For USD the only available methods are Credit Card and PayPal.
