To get started, you’ll need a Mollie account. If you haven’t done so already, create a free Mollie account and set up your account. After providing us some basic details about your website and company, you'll be able to start processing payments within minutes.

All that's needed to enable payments in your WooCommerce store is to copy your Mollie API key into the Mollie for WooCommerce plugin.

- Copy the Live API key and/or the Test API key
- Next, navigate back to the Wordpress Admin panel

All that’s left is to choose the payment methods you would like to offer your customers.
Step 3 - Enable your payment methods
Mollie offers a variety of payment methods that help you grow on the global market such as CreditCard and PayPal, or in local markets such as iDEAL for the Netherlands. You can enable any payment method you’d like.
Enabling payment methods for your WooCommerce store is as easy as flipping a switch.
First, you will need to first activate payment methods in the Mollie Dashboard.
- Navigate to your Website profile in the Mollie Dashboard and click on Payment Methods
- Simply switch the toggle to enable or disable a payment method
Next, you'll need to activate the same payment methods in your WooCommerce store.
- Head back to the Payments settings where you inserted your API key(s)
- Scroll down and toggle the same payment methods you enabled in the Mollie Dashboard
And that’s it! Your store is now all set up to start processing payments through Mollie. Mollie does all the heavy lifting for you in the background so you can focus on running your business.
