AMSTERDAM | Dutch-based Payment Service Provider Mollie and international commerce platform Shopify announced a collaboration that enables Shopify stores to easily sell to consumers in Belgium and the Netherlands. This news follows Mollie's recent announcement of launching its online payment service in the Belgian e-commerce market.
iDEAL and Bancontact / MisterCash
Through this collaboration, existing and new Shopify shops are able to tap into the most popular online payments in the Netherlands (iDEAL) and Belgium (Bancontact / MisterCash) with just one integration. The payment methods are instantly activated on the merchant’s site by entering the Mollie key in the Shopify platform.
The integration enables 120,000+ Shopify stores to more easily target the 25 million Dutch and Belgian online shoppers that spend over 17 billion euro online every year. In 2014, almost 14 billion euro in B2C e-commerce sales was generated in the Netherlands.
Making payments easier
“Entering into new markets is an essential part of Shopify’s growth,” said Louis Kearns, Product Director, Merchant Services at Shopify. “That’s why integrations like the one with Mollie are so important. It makes the entire process of starting an online store and accepting payments that much easier.”
Total eCommerce solution
“The partnership leverages the qualities and capabilities of both providers and fits perfectly with the way that we do business” says Remco Boer, Director of Mollie. “We are specialised in payments and Shopify has a great commerce platform.
