Payment services provider Mollie raises £81m in funding

Mollie is one of the largest PSPs in Europe, which expects to process over 10 billion Euro transaction volume this year

Payment services provider Mollie has today announced the closing of €90 million ($100 million) in its Series B funding round, taking the total amount raised by the company to 115 million Euro.

The round was led by TCV, one of the largest growth equity investors focused on technology.

Launched in 2004, Mollie is one of the largest PSPs in Europe, serving nearly 100,000 merchants across the continent, expecting to process well over 10 billion Euro transaction volume this year and doubling year-on-year. In the last year in Germany alone, processing volumes grew by 1000%.

This growth has been driven by Mollie’s differentiated approach to online payments for its customers. It offers a best in class product with superior design and easy integration, simple and transparent pricing, no lock-in contracts and best-in-class customer service.

TCV’s portfolio includes many household names: Netflix, Facebook, Spotify and Revolut, to name a few. This funding represents a huge endorsement of our business, our technology and our efforts to offer the best payment solutions that add value and help merchants unlock growth, said Adriaan Mol, founder of Mollie.

He said, other PSPs are purely focused on price and volume. But medium sized merchants are finding they need their relationship with their PSP to be more than transactional. They need a partner to help them grow, to help them continually optimise their business – it’s an approach that TCV recognises builds significant long-term value.

We are delighted to partner with Adriaan and the Mollie team, said TCV General Partner John Doran.

TCV looks to invest in category leading technology companies that are disrupting large markets – exactly what Mollie is doing today. Mollie is a customer obsessed company that delights its e-commerce merchant customers with beautifully engineered products and by putting the needs and priorities of merchants at the centre of everything they do, he said.

Muz Ashraf, Principal at TCV, added, we have been tracking Mollie for some time now, and believe it has built a product that is frictionless, highly developer-friendly and very localised. The proposition has resonated strongly with merchants and has catapulted Mollie to becoming a leading e-commerce payments provider in Europe.

Ashraf said, we are delighted to partner with Adriaan and the team and are excited for the journey ahead.
