Mollie Payments for WooCommerce arrives in the UK
April 4, 2022
Our effortless payments solution is now available for WooCommerce in the UK. The plugin offers businesses with a WooCommerce webshop a seamless way to support domestic and European payments. It is already available in other European countries as part of our long-term partnership with WooCommerce, one of the world’s most popular open-source ecommerce solutions.
Our WooCommerce integration provides customers with critical success factors – it’s easy to install, easy to use, and supports businesses with UK-relevant and global payment methods such as debit and credit cards, PayPal, and Apple Pay. It also offers more than 20 European payment methods, including iDEAL, Sofort, and Bancontact, which can be easily added and removed in the Mollie dashboard.
UK ecommerce SMEs who want to expand into Europe risk making a major misstep if they can’t accept the payment types European customers prefer. We help support them with these local payment methods, market knowledge, and key integrations such as bookkeeping software. Our seamless checkout system is optimised to help customers increase their conversion rate.
“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,” says Keala Gaines, general manager payments at WooCommerce. “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.”
A range of features to guide growth
The WooCommerce plugin includes our personalised dashboard, which provides access to real-time data and insights. We also offer flexible payouts to ensure businesses maintain a healthy cash flow.
Paul Falla is co-owner of heritage brand Ernest Wright, one of the first customers using our WooCommerce integration in the UK. He says, “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.”
“We’re delighted to engage in a long term partnership with WooCommerce and grow our footprint together,” says Ken Serdons, Mollie CCO. “We’re supporting an increasing number of UK businesses with their domestic payments and 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.”
