Understanding Payment Methods
System > Configuration > Sales > Payment Methods
Magento Go supports a wide variety of payment methods, services, and gateways you can offer for your customers’ convenience.
The following payment methods do not require the use of a third-party service provider or gateway.
- Cash On Delivery Payment
The Cash On Delivery payment method, also called “collect on delivery,” or COD, lets customers pay for their purchases upon delivery.
- Check / Money Order
Magento Go allows you to accept payments by check and money order. By default, the Check / Money Order payment method is enabled.
- Zero Subtotal Checkout
The Zero Subtotal Checkout payment method can be used only if the shopping cart subtotal equals zero. Such a situation may occur if, for example, a discount covers the entire price of an item and the customer selects free shipping. This payment method is visible only for orders created from the Admin panel.
- Bank Transfer Payment
The Bank Transfer Payment method lets customers pay for purchases by making a direct bank transfer to your merchant bank account.
- Purchase Order
The Purchase Order payment method lets commercial buyers make purchases from your Magento Go store by purchase order rather than cash or credit.
