Check / Money Order

Magento Commerce allows you to accept payments by either check or money order. The Check / Money Order payment method is enabled for your story by default.

To set up payment by check or money order:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration.
2. In the panel on the left, under Sales, select Payment Methods. Click to expand Check / Money Order, and do the following:
a. To activate this payment method, set Enabled to “Yes.”
b. Enter a Title to identify this payment method during checkout.
c. Set New Order Status to "Pending” until receipt of payment is confirmed.
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

    Select each country in the Payment from Specific Countries list where customers can make purchases from your store.

e. In the Make Check Payable To field, enter the name of the party to whom the check must be payable.
f. In the Send Check To field, enter the street address where the checks are mailed.
g. Set Minimum Order Total and Maximum Order Total to the order amounts required to qualify for this payment method.

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

h. Enter a Sort Order number to determine the position of Check / Money Order in the list of payment methods that is shown during checkout. (0 = first, 1 = second, 2 = third, and so on.)
3. When finished, click the Save Config button.
