How can I use recurring payments?
Automatic periodic collection is possible through a subscription. A subscription can be set in 2 ways and we explain below:
Via a payment link
Add a payment link directly via a specific customer, or via the general payment links page. Here you can choose type "Subscription". Complete all required fields and add the payment link. When the customer pays the first installment via this payment link, the subscription will then start automatically. Because the customer has to make a first payment (via iDEAL, Bancontact, SOFORT, Belfius, KBC or Credit Card), a mandate will also be added by Mollie. Through this mandate you can collect from the account / card.
By adding a subscription manually
To add a subscription to a customer manually, there must first be a valid mandate.
This can be done by first sending the customer a payment link with the type "Mandate". The amount of this payment link can be € 0.01 or higher. With this the customer verifies his / her account number.
You can manually add a mandate (IBAN) to be able to collect directly afterwards. Note; this is not possible with the RCUR starter plan.
If there is already a mandate, the subscription can be added immediately.
- From the RCUR starter package you can use the Basic Mollie subscriptions. Click here for more information on how to add such a subscription.
- Do you have an RCUR advanced package or higher? Then we recommend using our Advanced subscriptions. These offer more options to make collection even easier. Click here for an explanation of how to add an advanced subscription.
More information about the processing time of a collection payment can be found in the help center of Mollie: When are the collection payments processed and paid out?
