Can I use Mollie to sell alcohol in the UK?

Yes, you can. However, we will ask you to provide proof that you are legally allowed to sell alcohol in the UK before we approve your account. You will need to submit a personal licence and premises licence to use our services for selling alcohol online.


Conditions for the sale of alcohol

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are not selling alcohol to anyone under 18 years of age. The following are some steps you can consider taking:

  • Include a declaration on your website that alcohol can only be sold to over-18s.
  • Ask the customer to verify during checkout that their age is over 18 years.
  • During delivery, make sure your delivery drivers ask for an ID to verify the customer’s age.

You should check with your local authority about the specific rules you need to follow when selling liquor online.
