You don’t need complex plugins or integrations to start accepting payments with iDEAL (and other payment methods) in WordPress! Get (test) payments running on your site within 15 minutes!

Use Paytium to create a simple payment form for a product or service. Accept donations or create a small webshop. Paytium supports one-time payments and subscriptions/recurring payments.

Accept popular payment methods

Besides iDEAL you can also accept payments with credit cards, PayPal Bancontact/Mister Cash, SOFORT, Bitcoin, Belfius and other payment methods! View a full list at Mollie.

After completing a short and guided setup, you can start adding payment forms with iDEAL (and other payment methods) to your posts or pages. Shortcodes can be inserted with a few clicks directly from the iDEAL button in the WordPress editor.

Paytium forms can be added in the Classic editor as shown in the below video, and as a block in the new Block editor. In the block editor, add the new “Paytium Code” block by typing /Paytium.

Flexible: get creative with iDEAL payments

There is no limit to the amount of Mollie iDEAL forms you can create in your posts and pages. You can use different amount types.

  • static, users just click the “Pay € 20” button
  • dynamic, users select an amount in a dropdown
  • custom, users enter an amount in a text field

Pro versions: when you need to grow

When your payment form really starts to bring in some money, and you need to grow, or want to automate things, consider the Pro versions!

Examples of what you can do

  • Collect donations for charity, allow people to enter their own amounts
  • Add a link to your site on your invoices and ask customers to pay online
  • Sell simple products, with registration of customer address details
  • Accept online payments for services such as a workshop or coaching sessions
  • And more!

Custom fields: collect all the information you need

Need more information from your customers, or want to ship something? Add your own fields and view the collected information in the WordPress admin. You can create an email field, text fields, radio buttons and more! Read more in the manual.

Yes, this is the Gravity Forms & iDEAL alternative you have been waiting for!

Automatically process recurring payments

Paytium also supports recurring payments, even for iDEAL payments. Setup a simple subscription, ask customers to pay once to confirm, and see how the next payments come into your bank account automatically.

Yes, recurring payments also work with iDEAL payments! When iDEAL is used for the first payment, the next (automatic) payments are processed with SEPA direct debit (automatische incasso). Read more in the recurring payments for WordPress manual.

What’s the big deal about iDEAL?

Paytium supports almost all Mollie payment methods, including iDEAL but excluding Klarna. But iDEAL is a little special to Paytium, because it’s Dutch (and so is Paytium’s developer).

The payment method iDEAL is a Dutch payment method supported by almost all Dutch banks. It allow’s Dutch consumers to pay easily via the online banking app or the banks website. iDEAL is the most popular payment method in the Netherlands, and 60% of Dutch consumers prefer iDEAL over other payment methods like PayPal. iDEAL is a semi-automated direct online transfer from the consumers bank account to your Mollie account/bank account.

Even though iDEAL is the most popular payment method in the Netherlands, other payment methods like PayPal are becoming more popular. Our advice is to always accept at least iDEAL as payment method in your payment forms, but also enable all other payment methods that are available via Mollie. Consumers like to make payments in their favourite payment method, so it’s best to just allow them to make the payments in anyway they like.

A nice thing to know about iDEAL, is that iDEAL payments can not be refunded by consumers. This is of course possible with PayPal or credit card payments. Some businesses see this a big benefit for iDEAL, but consumers off course see this as a limitation. But with good communication between you and your consumers/customers, this shouldn’t be a problem for iDEAL payments. You, as a Mollie user, can refund iDEAL payments via the Mollie dashboard. It’s just that consumers can’t initiate the refund.
