What you need to know in advance

 

Activating payment methods in Shopify

  1. Choose a Klarna payment method and click the activation link:
  • Click Add app.
  • Log in to your Shopify account. 
  • On the installation page, click Install app.
  • Click Connect via Mollie and log into your Mollie account.
  • Choose your website profile. This tells us which website you are installing the payment method on. Click Select profile.
  • (Optional) Choose Enable test mode to test the payment method.
    • You can use test mode to make dummy transactions before your webshop goes live.
  • Click on Activate Mollie - [Payment method name].
  • If you’re using the old Mollie payment gateways, you should deactivate them.
    • You can tell the difference between the old payment gateways and the new by checking the name in Shopify. All the new Payment Apps have the name Mollie - [Payment method name]. Keep these ones activated.

     

    What has changed in the new Klarna Payment Apps?

    If you were previously using our Klarna payment gateways on Shopify, you will find 2 important changes when you begin to use the new Klarna Payment Apps.

    Auto-capture

    After your customer makes an order and pays with Klarna, the order status will immediately show as Completed in your Mollie Dashboard. A shipment will be created and you can see this on the order page under Shipments. This means that the order will be captured automatically: you will receive the funds after the standard settlement delay and your customer will receive an invoice from Klarna immediately.

    Order information

    You may see the line-items Fees or Discounts when you view a Klarna order in the Mollie Dashboard. You do not need to do anything if you see this. These line-items are added automatically to ensure that the total amount of the order is correct. Fees will show a positive amount and Discounts will show a negative amount. We have made this change because Shopify no longer shares the full details for orders with third party payment providers like Mollie.
