How do I activate credit and debit card payments?

You can make an activation request for credit and debit cards payments in your Mollie Dashboard. We’ll then check your website and make a decision based on our policy. This review usually takes 5-7 days and we’ll send you an email with the decision.


Conditions for accepting credit card payments

We have a stricter policy when it comes to activating credit and debit card payments because of the risk of chargebacks. When you make an activation request, we review your website for the following:

  • Products or services that are allowed by card schemes.
  • Shipping times and prices.
  • Returns and refunds policy.
  • Contact details such as a contact form, email address or phone number.
