API changes January—April 2016

Occasionally, we will add new resources, new fields or new possible values to existing fields to the Mollie API. All changes will be documented in the API changelog. These changes allow you to do more with your current integration with Mollie.

In the first four months of 2016, we have launched new APIs to create a representation of your customers with us, added richer information to the credit card payment detail object and made API improvements that ease reconciliation of settlements.

If you have any feedback on our APIs, please do not hesitate to contact us.

April 2016

  • Added checkoutPreviewUrl preview URL to the links object in Get profile.
  • Added refunds top level endpoint. Use this endpoint to retrieve all refunds on your organization, instead of on a single payment. Requires an OAuth token.
  • Added payment detail cardFingerprint to credit card and Bancontact/Mister Cash payments. It is a randomly generated identifier for each card (unique per Mollie account) usable for identifying returning customers and fraud detection.

Allow your Dutch customers to pay online

The Dutch are generally a cosmopolitan lot with a strong international outlook. We all speak multiple languages, study, work and travel across the globe and buy abroad as well.

Figures released on April 6th show that in 2015 the Dutch spent over EUR 500 million at foreign online shops. This represents 3% of total online spending in the Netherlands and an increase of 16% compared to the previous year.

Almost a quarter of these purchases were made in China followed by Germany (16%), the UK (15%) and the US (12%).
