Payment Methods: Bank Transfer Payment (Exaple)


Melting allows you to accept payments from your customers by bank transfer to your merchant bank account.

To enable bank transfer payments:

  1. From the Admin panel, select System > Configuration.
  2. From the Configuration panel on the left, under Sales, select the Payment Methods tab.
  3. Expand the Bank Transfer Payment section. Then, do the following:
    1. To activate this payment method, set Enabled to Yes.
    2. In the Title field, enter an appropriate title to identify this payment method during the checkout process of your Melting store.
    3. Set New Order Status to Pending so that new generated orders are appropriately defined as Pending in their status until they are processed completely.
    4. In the Payment from Applicable Countries field, select the countries where this payment method can be used:
      • All Allowed Countries: Customers from all countries in the default countries list can use this payment method.
        NOTE: To define which countries are listed by default, modify the Allowed Countries field in System > Configuration > General > Countries Options.
      • Specific Countries: Customers from only those countries selected in the Payment from Specific Countries list can use this payment method. (The list appears when you select this option.)
    5. In the Instructions field, you enter instructions for your customers to set up a bank transfer. Depending on which country your bank is in, and your bank’s requirements for transfers, you might need to provide your customers with the following information:
      • Bank account name
      • Bank account number
      • Bank routing code
      • Bank name
      • Bank address
    6. In the Minimum Order Total and Maximum Order Total fields, specify the minimum and maximum order totals that qualify for this payment method. If an order exactly matches the minimum or maximum total, it qualifies for this payment method.
    7. To set the position of Bank Transfer Payments in the list of payment methods that is displayed during checkout, enter a numeric value in the Sort Order field. Enter 0 for the top of the sort order list, 1 for the second highest in the list, and so on.
  4. When finished, click the Save Config button.
