Selecting Accepted Payment Methods
You can allow your customers to choose from up to seven different payment methods for the orders they place in your web store. See the step-by-step guide below for instructions on how to choose payment methods and for descriptions of each of the available methods. Once you select payment methods using this tool, they will be displayed to customers during the web store's checkout process.
- Open your web store's Merchant Tools in a browser. Click the link for Store Settings and select Order Processing.
- You'll see a list of the available payment methods under the Accepted Payment Methods section. Check the payment methods you will allow customers to use when placing orders in your site. Uncheck the methods you would like to disable. Each method is described in more detail below:
Credit Card: check this option to allow customers to place orders in your site using credit cards.
Electronic Check: check this option to allow customers to place orders in your site using electronic checks. You can then print the electronic check off later for processing.
Purchase Order: check this option to allow customers to place orders in your site using purchase orders.
COD: check this option to allow customers to place COD orders in your site. Specify the additional fee that will be added to the order in the Amount field.
Phone or Fax: Recorded: check this option to allow customers to place phone or fax orders in your site. In a phone or fax order, the customer submits their information, then prints the order page and either faxes it or calls it in. Many customers still prefer this method of ordering because it eliminates the necessity of sending credit card data across the net. The customer's information, however, is still recorded in your database and can be retrieved using the sales reporting tools.
Phone or Fax: Non-Recorded: This payment method functions in the same way as Phone or Fax: Recorded with the exception that the customer's information will not be written to your database upon the completion of an order.
PayPal: this option will allow customers to process orders using PayPal. You must still configure your site to use PayPal according to these instructions
