Mollie powers Mazda with simplified payments

March 24, 2022

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with Mazda Motor Europe to provide effortless payments for their new marketplace platform. We have signed a multi-year agreement that will help the automotive firm deliver a seamless digital and ecommerce experience for its customers that offers effortless, convenient, and frictionless payments.

Our Connect for Platforms product is an innovative new solution that allows SaaS, marketplace, and other platform businesses to facilitate effortless purchases and payments between buyers and sellers. Mazda is using Connect for Platforms to create a marketplace that will allow it to scale new products and guarantee that payments are sent to the correct regional dealer.

“The future of online sales lies in marketplaces, and we are delighted to be working with Mazda to help them grow this business offering further,” says Ken Serdons, Mollie CCO. “We’re excited to pioneer this innovative next step for the automotive industry and work with Mazda to develop future-focused ecommerce products and marketplace solutions.”

Mazda will use Connect for Platforms across the UK and Europe. It provides them with innovative and simplified features to help platforms excel, including hosted onboarding, intelligent dashboard, and relevant global and local payment methods, enabling its regional dealers to sell products and services via the global brand with ease. This digitalisation of automotive retail gives Mazda dealers the peace of mind of using a compliant and automated payment solution with localised customer support.

“We want to develop an innovative solution that will disrupt the automotive industry, and to do so, we need a partner that is future ready. That partner is Mollie,” says Matthias Sileghem, vice president customer experience, communications and public affairs at Mazda Motor Europe. “As we roll out our marketplace offering across the UK and ultimately throughout Europe, the simple, localised and transparent solutions that Mollie offers, allows us to remain focused on our growth and our customers.”

Mazda is already using Mollie Connect for Platforms in the UK and will roll it out to the rest of Europe in the second half of 2022. Find out more about Connect for Platforms.
