Mollie iDEAL forms & donations with Paytium

Description

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

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

Use Paytium to create a simple iDEAL payment form (NL: betaal formulier) or a small webshop. You can also use Paytium for subscriptions/recurring payments.

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

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

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.

Why iDEAL via Mollie?

Why does Paytium only support Mollie as payment service provider?

  • Mollie is the cheapest payment provider with 29 cents per iDEAL transaction
  • Your money is automatically wired to your bank account daily, and for free
  • No hidden, setup or monthly costs, only pay for actual transactions
  • Fully certified by “De Nederlandsche Bank” (DNB), just like the big banks
  • Mollie is the very best in payments, based on my experience with iDEAL since 2008
  • Super fast and friendly helpdesk (via email and telephone)

Where can I find the documentation?

Paytium is a relatively simple plugin but… we have documentation anyway! To learn more please read the manual. If you still have questions, feel free to email david@paytium.nl.

Can I get advice about iDEAL and this plugin?

Yes, it would be my pleasure to advice you on the best way to implement iDEAL payments, email david@paytium.nl.

Can I accept recurring payments?

Yes, you can! Learn more about recurring payments in the recurring payments for WordPress manual!

Can I use my own (custom) form fields?

You can create your own payment forms by using custom fields in Paytium. Read more in the custom fields manual.

Does Paytium work on local WordPress installations?

No, you can’t. Payments can not be processed when originating from a desktop or localhost WP installation. I advice installing and using Paytium on live sites only, maybe in a sub directory, for example yourdomain.nl/test.

Do I need a chamber of commerce (KVK) number?

Yes, according to law you really need to be a company, and have a “Kamer van Koophandel” number to accept iDEAL payments.

What if the Setup Wizard doesn’t work?

Go directly to Mollie, create an account, and copy the profile keys to Paytium > Settings.

Can I redirect users to another page after the payment?

There is a hook which you can call to redirect users to another page after they return to the site. The hook is called ‘paytium_after_pt_show_payment_details’ and you can add it to your functions.php file. There is an example of the code on Github. Replace “/category/geen-categorie/” at location.replace with the URL you want to redirect to.

In the following example, you see how you can send users to different “Thank you” pages depending on the page that the Paytium shortcode was used on.

Can I add/code my own process after a payment is placed?

Yes! There is also a hook which you can call at the moment Mollie sends the payment details back to the site via their webhook. after they return to the site. The hook is called ‘paytium_after_pt_payment_update_webhook’ and you can add the code to your functions.php file. There is an example of the code on Github.

Can I just change the text after payment (without redirect)?

Yes, you can! Use the plugin Say What, when installed go to Extra > Text changes. Make a new text change with these details. Replace “Replacement string” with your text.

Reviews

Super plugin, precies wat je zoekt

Paytium is een super handige plugin die op eenvoudige wijze betaalformulieren maakt. De koppeling met Mollie gaat heel soepel. Maar het allermooiste is wel de geweldige support! Op de website staat veel, maar een aanvullende vraag werd snel en accuraat beantwoord.
Bedankt Paytium!

Fijne plugin, superservice

Wat een fijne plugin om even snel een iDEAL betaling via je website mogelijk te maken. En wat een superservice van David als je er niet helemaal uitkomt.Blij mee.

Wat een service!

Bij Paypro was ik maandelijks €15,- kwijt. Als starter is het zó zonde om dit maandelijks te moeten betalen. Bij toeval stuitte ik op Paytium. Ik had nogal wat wensen. Zo moest na betaling mijn klant automatisch toegang krijgen tot het online product. Ik heb David van Paytium gemaild en hij heeft het persoonlijk voor mij in orde gemaakt! En het werkt! Top!
