Payment and Mollie in Drupal 8

Mollie logo

Mollie provides a facade for several payment methods (credit card, debit card, Paypal, Sepa, Bitcoin, ...) with various languages and frameworks support.

In some cases, you could decide to use the Payment module instead of the full Commerce distribution.
This tutorial describes how to create a product as a node and process payment with Mollie, only via configuration. A possible use case can be an existing Drupal 8 site that just needs to enable a few products (like membership, ...).

Get the Mollie Payment module

composer require drupal/mollie_payment

Composer will install the Mollie API client library for you into the vendor directory, so no need to download it into the libraries directory.

Enable the module, it will also enable the Plugin, Currency and Payment modules.

drush en mollie_payment

Enable the Payment Form module (that is shipped with the Payment module).

drush en payment_form

At the time of writing, you will need to use the Payment dev release.

composer require drupal/payment:2.x-dev

Then patch the line items ajax issue.

cd LOCAL_PATH/modules/contrib/payment
curl -O
patch -p1 < fix_ajax-1.patch

For deploying in other environments, make sure that your main composer.json file contains the patch into the extra section.

"patches": {
  "drupal/payment": {
    "Ajax broken in payment_form submodule": ""


If this error is triggered while viewing a line item:

Call to undefined function Drupal\payment\Entity\bcadd() in Drupal\payment\Entity\Payment->getAmount()

or this one while importing a currency:

Error: Call to undefined function Commercie\Currency\bcdiv() in Commercie\Currency\Currency->getRoundingStep()

bcadd or bcdiv is missing, so install the bcmath php extension.

Composer should warn you about the missing ext-bcmath, but in some situations it can happen that the modules are being required properly but the error occurs at runtime (e.g. your command line php version is 7.0 and your Apache vhost version is 7.1, with a bcmath enabled for 7.0 but not for 7.1).

It can be easily fixed, here we are using php 7.1 on our vhost

sudo apt-get install php7.1-bcmath
# restart your server, here we assume Apache
sudo service apache2 restart

Create a Mollie account

After signing up, you will immediately receive a Test API key and a preconfigured Test profile that you can adapt to your configuration.

Define the site URL under Contact information. Then define the desired Payment methods.
