Product in the spotlight: The Mollie App
In our new "Product in the Spotlight" series, we’ll be highlighting a different product, feature or plug-in each month. For this first edition, we’re zooming in on the Mollie App.
What is the Mollie App?
We're kicking in an open door here, because the name obviously says it all: the Mollie App is the mobile app that gives you as a customer access to your Mollie account. With the Mollie App, you have your business at your fingertips anytime, anywhere. The app is also completely free.
The Mollie App was launched in 2019 for iOS and in 2020 for Android. Since then, we have been systematically adding new features. So keep a close eye on the app to discover the latest features.
Anyone on your team can use the Mollie App. Through the settings menu in your Mollie Dashboard, you can assign team members to your organization. What information they get to see depends on their role (administrator, developer, finance, support or just consulting).
How does the Mollie App make your life easier?
As an entrepreneur, you're often on the go: from one appointment to another, from your desk a quick trip to the warehouse, etc.
Do you like to be in control and want to keep an eye on your transactions and your Mollie account balance at any time of the day, without needing your PC? Then the Mollie App is the solution you're looking for. But the app has much more to offer.
What can you do with the Mollie App?
We list the 5 most important features of the app.
1. Check your Balance and Payments
Check the available balance of your Mollie account at any time of the day. Thanks to the handy graph, you can also easily compare the transaction volume with previous periods. This gives you insight into the evolution of your income.
2. Manage your transactions and make refunds
The Mollie App is an excellent tool to track and manage your transactions. You can also process refunds.
3. Accept Payments with Payment Links and QR codes
Create a Payment Link or QR code, share it with your customers and let them pay immediately. You can even personalise payment requests so they completely match your business.
Letting customers pay via a payment link (or QR code) is an excellent solution if you’re doing business on the go, have a pop-up shop or just want to offer quick, easy payments for the best customer experience. Your customers will be able to pay using the payment methods you have activated in your account. Reporting and reconciliation are integrated with all the online payments you receive.
In the Mollie app, you can create payment requests with one tap of a button share it through your preferred channels (email, SMS, chat services etc).
4. Manage your orders: send, cancel and refund anytime, anywhere
As long as an order has not shipped, you can change the number of items or cancel the order through the Mollie App. You can also refund the amount of an order once it has been paid or shipped.
5. Get real-time notifications
Enable real-time notifications so you’re always up to date on how your business is doing. For example, you can set the app to notify you whenever you receive a new payment or when an order is about to expire. In the settings menu, choose which push notifications you want to receive.
How do you get started with the Mollie App?
Download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
Link your Mollie account to the app by logging in with your email address and password. Choose the organisation you want to connect to the app and tap “Next”.
The app will then show you some suggestions to enable useful features like push notifications. You can also activate your fingerprint or facial recognition to quickly login. You can always adjust this later in the Settings menu as well.
Jannes from WANDStyle
I use the Mollie app 6 to 10 times a day. It’s the easiest way for me to check how much turnover we’ve made anytime, anywhere [...] The app also lets my employees easily generate and send out payment links. I find it very handy that I can see the turnover for each day, week or past 30 days. Without even opening up my laptop, I can immediately see if I need to check something, such as orders that are due soon.
