Managing payment methods

For Ceres stores, payment methods are integrated via plugins. To access the available payment plugins as well as instructions on how to install them, visit the payment section in the plentyMarketplace . On this page, you will find information on how to manage payment methods and which settings to select. Moreover, you will find an overview of market payment methods. For a detailed description on how to activate market payment methods, refer to the pages of the corresponding markets.

1. Specifying the default payment method

Proceed as follows to specify the payment method to be set by default in the order process in your online store.

Specifying the default payment method:

  1. Go to Setup » Client » Select client » Orders.

  2. Select a payment method from the Default payment method drop-down list.

  3. Save () the settings.

2. Permitting the payment method in a customer class

You need to permit payment methods in the basic settings of your customer classes. These settings also relate to the standard end customers. New payment methods need to be added to the list of permitted payment methods. Vice versa, you can exclude payment methods from this list to prevent the payment methods from being used by a particular customer class. After having set up a new payment method in your system, check the settings under Permitted payment methods for each of your customer classes. For further information, refer to the Creating a customer class page.

SSL certificate and encryption

We generally recommend that you use SSL encryption for your online store if you work with payment data and customer data. This is required for payment methods that work with an iframe.

3. Offering a discount based on a payment method

You can offer your customers a discount when they use a specific payment method. This is a customer class setting which enables you to offer a discount on payment methods in the webshop. For information on how to set this up, refer to the chapter Setting up a discount based on the method of payment of the manual.

4. Shipping without payment

Some payment methods require items to be shipped before the payment was received, e.g. with payment on invoice. If the stock is limited to net stock, then the system will check whether stock is available and will set the corresponding order in status 4 or 5. To solve this, go to Setup » Orders » Settings and select YES for the option Status changes to 4 instead of 5 if stock is missing. If there is no limitation set up for the stock, then the order will be placed directly in status 5.

The following payment methods require shipping before payment:

  • Invoice

  • Debit

  • Cash on delivery

  • Amazon

For further information, refer to the Stocks page of the manual.

5. Payment methods for markets
