Check / Money Order

Magento Open Source allows you to accept payments by check or money order. The Check / Money Order payment method is enabled for your story by default. You can accept checks and money orders from only specific countries, and fine-tune the configuration with minimum and maximum order total limits.

To configure payment by check or money order:

1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.
2. In the panel on the left under Sales, choose Payment Methods.
3. Expand the Check / Money Order section. Then, do the following:
a. To accept payment by check or money order, set Enabled to “Yes.”
b. Enter a Title to identify the Check / Money Order 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

    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. 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 or PO Box 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.)
4. When complete, tap  Save Config .
