To set up bank transfer payments:

2. Click to expand the Bank Transfer Payment section. Then, do the following:
a. To activate Bank Transfer Payment, set Enabled to “Yes.”
b. Enter a Title to identify Bank Transfer Payment during checkout.
c. Set New Order Status to “Pending” until payment is authorized.
d. Set Payment from Applicable Countries to one of the following:
  • All Allowed Countries

    Customers from all countries specified in your store configuration can use this payment method.

    Specific Countries

    After choosing this option, the Payment from Specific Countries list appears. Select each country in the list where customers can make purchases from your store.

e. Enter the Instructions your customers must follow to set up a bank transfer. Depending on the country where your bank is located and your bank’s requirements, you might need to include the following information:
  • Bank account name
  • Bank account number
  • Bank routing code
  • Bank name
  • Bank address
f. Set Minimum Order Total and Maximum Order Total to the amounts required to qualify to use this payment method.

An order qualifies if the total falls between, or exactly matches, the minimum or maximum total values.
