Mollie, one of the fastest-growing payment service providers in Europe, announced the launch of Mollie Payments for WooCommerce in the UK. The plug-in offers UK SMEs a WooCommerce webshop, a seamless way to support domestic and European payments. Mollie and WooCommerce, one of the world’s most popular open-source eCommerce solutions, already work closely together in other European countries and are now engaging in a long term partnership to grow their global footprint. 

Mollie Payments for WooCommerce provides customers with critical success factors it’s easy to install, easy to use, and supports businesses with UK and global payment methods such as debit and credit cards, PayPal and Apple Pay, as well as more than 20 local payment methods including iDEAL, Sofort and Bancontact. All of which can be easily toggled on and off in the Mollie dashboard. 

British eCommerce SMEs expanding into Europe risk making a major misstep if they can’t accept the payment types European customers favour. Mollie can support them with market knowledge, local payment methods, and key local integrations, such as bookkeeping software. The fully bespoke checkout system supports effortless payments, helping users increase conversion rates. 

Keala Gaines, General Manager Payments at WooCommerce, said: “WooCommerce research shows that 56% of UK merchants have added multiple or new payment gateways to offer their customers more options and better checkout experiences. Sellers should be implementing the preferred payment methods in the countries they’re hoping to gain traction in. WooCommerce merchants love Mollie’s simple integration, international options, and hyper-localisation.” 

Mollie’s personalised dashboard allows access to real-time data and insights at any time, with flexible pay-outs to ensure businesses keep a healthy cash flow. The WooCommerce plug-in is already available to Mollie’s Dutch, French, and German customers. 

Paul Falla, Co-Owner at UK heritage brand and launching customer of Mollie Payments for WooCommerce, Ernest Wright, said: “I’m a fan of Mollie’s human style of customer service. On the one hand, Mollie is top-notch and modern, but it also has a personal touch. And the personal touches, for me, are much more important than the last penny. Although I want the last penny as well, of course, but solving the customer’s problem is more important.” 

Ken Serdons, Chief Commercial Officer at Mollie, said: “We’re delighted to engage in a long term partnership with WooCommerce and grow our footprint together. We’re supporting an increasing number of UK businesses with their domestic payments, in addition to helping them succeed cross-border in this post-Brexit world. Mollie’s ethos is to deliver the easiest online payments for our customers and through our partners. We look forward to continuing to deliver high conversions to allow eCommerce businesses to stay focused without having to worry about the payments side of things.”
