Dutch fintech Mollie to power payments for carmaker Mazda
After launching its newest product, Connect for Platforms, last week, Mollie is now partnering with Mazda to continue its global expansion.
Amsterdam–based fintech Mollie is continuing its global expansion in a partnership with carmaker Mazda.
The multi-year agreement follows a series of big moves to expand the business over the last year.
The payment service provider invested €1m in tech businesses last December, raised $800m in Series C funding, appointed a new CEO and chair last summer, and just last week launched its newest product, Connect for Platforms.
Mollie’s latest product, a new solution for online SaaS and marketplace platforms, will allow Mazda Motor Europe to scale new products and aims to provide a smooth digital and e-commerce experience for consumers.
It says it will provide “effortless, convenient and frictionless” payments.
“We’re excited to pioneer this innovative next step for the automotive industry, and to work with Mazda to develop future-focused e-commerce products and marketplace solutions.”
The payments solution will provide Mazda with an easy way to accept and integrate payments across both the UK and Europe.
A range of features, such as hosted onboarding and relevant global and local payment methods, should allow its regional dealers to sell products and services easily.
By digitalising the automotive industry in this way, Mollie says regional dealers will be able to have confidence in their payments while also receiving localised customer support from the company.
“We want to develop an innovative solution that will disrupt the automotive industry, and to do so, we need a partner that is future ready. That partner is Mollie,” vice president customer experience, communications and public affairs at Mazda Motor Europe, Matthias Sileghem, said.
“As we roll out our marketplace offering across the UK and ultimately throughout Europe, the simple, localised and transparent solutions that Mollie offers, allows us to remain focused on our growth and our customers.”
The new technology has started in the UK with the rest of Europe expected to follow in the second half of the year.
