This feature is a Private Beta Release. Contact [email protected]  to enable Mollie payment gateway for your Test and Live site.

Sofort is a popular online banking method in Europe. It is available in Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and Poland.

In this document, we are going to learn about configuring Mollie Sofort. Chargebee allows you to configure and process Sofort payments with Mollie seamlessly. This helps you reach a larger audience in Europe.

To configure Mollie Sofort, you must have an account with Mollie and should have configured both SEPA and Sofort. This is because Mollie Sofort is generally used for one-time payments. In a subscription business, you will be charging your customers on a recurring basis. Therefore Chargebee handles recurring scenarios by converting Sofort payment method to Direct Debit (SEPA) payment method. The first payment will happen via Sofort and all future recurring payments will happen via SEPA.
