How to Use Mollie for Mobile Payments in Ionic App

Mollie is in the same space as PayPal, Stripe and enables your business to receive online payments. Mollie also offers APIs for developers which means you can easily add Mollie supported payments to your app.

Connecting to Mollie Payment API

To show you how simple it is to connect to Mollie API, I created a Server Code script that initiates a payment.

var url = "";

var XHRResponse = Apperyio.XHR2.send("POST", url, {
  'body': {
    'description': 'My cool new product',
    'redirectUrl': ''
  "headers": {
    "Authorization": "Bearer test_qgzeg5Bb................"

Apperyio.response.success(XHRResponse.body, "application/json");

This is how the script looks in the Server Code editor. The right side shows the script tested and the response from Mollie:

Building an Ionic app

Once you tested the connection to Mollie Payment API, the next step is to build an Ionic app that uses the script and makes a payment.

This is how the Ionic app looks inside the visual editor:

In this app you can enter a price, and product description. When you click Purchase, the script you wrote above will be invoked. In the Payment ID card you show the transaction id from Mollie. This means the payment was successful. You can include any other information from Mollie Payment response.

Running the app:

This is how the scope looks with the makePayment function:

Connecting to any API is very straight forward using Server Code script as you can see in this short example.

If you like this, quickly create an account and build your next app with any APIs.
