Payment Gateways - our review of Magento’s best offerings

23 June 2023

We understand the importance of choosing the right payment provider for your Magento 2 store. A seamless, secure, and efficient payment process is essential to maximise conversions and provide an excellent shopping experience for your customers.

That's why we’ve carefully curated a list of our preferred payment providers, each offering unique features and benefits to suit your business needs.



Mollie is a modern payment gateway, which integrates into webshops to allow merchants to process a variety of payment methods, all through one place (e.g. cards, applepay, klarna).

The process of integrating with Mollie, from installation and setup to configuration, is incredibly seamless for both clients and the development team. Their extensive documentation, developer-friendly APIs and integration tools make it easy to set up and configure Mollie as a payment gateway for Magento 2, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free payment processing experience.

Mollie's dedicated team remains available throughout the entire integration journey, providing assistance from beginning to end. They are readily accessible to address any issues that may arise after Mollie becomes your chosen payment provider, whilst actively seeking feedback from clients and agencies to enhance their services.

Mollie will work with you and compare your current payment provider if you are looking at changing this, and review the costs currently spent vs what they could save you! We have seen savings of up to 12k per annum from switching to Mollie.

  • Wide Range of Payment Methods: Mollie supports a wide array of payment options, including credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers, e-wallets (such as PayPal and Apple Pay).
  • Competitive Pricing: Mollie offers transparent and competitive pricing structures, with affordable transaction fees and no setup or monthly fees. This pricing model allows Magento 2 merchants to optimise their costs while benefiting from a reliable payment solution.
  • Strong Security Measures: Mollie prioritises the security of transactions and customer data. They are compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and use secure encryption protocols to protect sensitive information.
  • Fast Settlements: Mollie offers fast settlement times, ensuring that merchants receive their funds quickly after successful transactions.
  • Responsive Customer Support: Mollie provides responsive customer support, offering assistance via email, phone, and chat. Their clients, no matter what size, receive a Customer Success Manager who is readily available.
  • Analytics and Reporting: Mollie provides comprehensive analytics and reporting tools that give merchants valuable insights into transaction data, customer behaviour, and payment performance.
  • Efficiency: by using one integration to supply multiple payment methods, this reduces the risks and weight of a Magento store which otherwise could have 3+ payment method integrations.
  • Investment: One notable aspect of Mollie is their commitment to keeping their platform up to date. They regularly update their module, actively addressing bugs and staying in line with industry trends.

We enjoy working with the Mollie team because of the product capabilities, superior user experience, and our clients love the fair pricing. We have seen the platform work especially well for SMBs who want to be able to contact their PSP at any given time, or want to upgrade their checkout at a reasonable cost.
