Shopware 6 Plugin: Automate workflows involving Mollie

Shopware 6 has a flow builder to automate your processes, which you can use in combination with the Mollie plugin. This guide contains a number of use cases that you can use as examples.

What you need to do in advance

  • To use the Shopware 6 flow builder in combination with the Mollie plugin, ensure you're using Shopware 6 version 6.4.6.0 or later.

  • The flow builder enables you to set up advanced automated workflows to meet your needs. Ensure that you understand how Mollie works together with the flow builder↗ before creating automations.

  • To avoid duplicate actions that result in unexpected flows, switch off settings in the Mollie plugin that can conflict with an automation. For example, if you use a flow that automatically marks orders as shipped, switch off automatic shipping notification.

Ship orders automatically

You can create a flow that automatically notifies Mollie when orders are shipped, so that the payment is settled on your Mollie account.

Tip

You can also enable automatic shipping in the Mollie configuration settings under Extensions > My extensions > [select Configure in the options menu] > Order Management, for example if your sales volume does not make it worthwhile to set up Flow Builder.
