Changing the name of the payment gateway for alternative payments on the Checkout Page

Hi all,

I'm using Mollie as an alternative payment gateway for my German speaking customers and I'm not satisfied with the look / name of the specific gateway on the Shopify Checkout Page. Here's a picture of the example for a SEPA Bank Transfer:

The name "Bank transfer (Mollie)" will not be 100% clear to my elderly potential customers who are used to the right German name "SEPA Banküberweisung". By using this name it will definitely decrease my conversion rate. I have read multiple articles about changing the name of alternative payment gateway that is shown on the Shopify Checkout Page but I couldn't find a solution to my problem.

Does anybody know a solution to this?

Thx in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Hi there @christopher_da!

Great idea to change this wording to make sure this is clear for all your customers. I carried out a trial on my own test store to see if this is possible and I believe this is possible to do using our theme language editor. I will walk you through the steps here:

  • From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  • Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Actions > Edit languages
  • Click the tab that includes the text that you want to change
  • Edit the text
  • Click Save.

I found the exact correct heading to change by searching for "credit card" and editing the text under "credit card label", it looks like this on the language editor:


And this should then change the wording at checkout like so:


Please do let me know if this works correctly for you! I'd love to help you out with some business growth ideas - how do you feel things are going at the minute? Is there anything you'd like to improve or change?

Hi Ivy,

this is of course possible for Shopify payments, but I'm trying to do this with Alternative Payments such as "Mollie".
