Reference - Payment methods

On this page, you can find all available settings for configuring payment methods.

You can manage the payment methods on the Payment methods tab in the Store configuration and Multistore configuration applications. See the difference in Choosing site or global e-commerce configuration.


Display name

Specifies the name of the payment method displayed to users on the live site and in the administration interface.

Code name

Specifies the string identifier of the payment method object used by developers in the code.

Unless there is a reason to set a particular value, you can leave the default (automatic) option, and the system generates an appropriate code name.


Allows you to type a text description for the payment method in order to provide further information.

Teaser image

Allows you to add a teaser image that you can display to store visitors.

Allow if no shipping is supplied

Specifies whether the payment method is offered to the customer if no shipping is needed. An order does not require shipping if there are no products with the Needs shipping property enabled placed to the shopping cart.

Select the check box if the payment method is offered even when shipping is not needed. Typically, you may want to disable payment on delivery when the customer is buying only e-books or other downloadable electronic products. In that case, clear the check box.


Specifies whether you can use the payment method object in your on-line store. If selected, you can select the edited payment method.

Payment gateway URL

Payment gateway provider class

Leave the values blank for both online payment methods implement on the live site and manual payment methods.

Order status if payment succeeds

Specifies a status that the provider automatically assigns to orders after a payment is successfully completed (either by direct payment transactions or after capture of funds when using delayed capture).

By clicking New or by selecting (new item…), you can create a new order status.

Order status if payment fails

Specifies a status that the provider automatically assigns to orders if a payment transactions fails (either standard payment, authorization, or capture of funds).

Order status if payment is authorized

Specifies a status that the provider automatically assigns to orders after successful payment authorization (if the payment is not fully completed).

Used by payment methods that support delayed capture transactions – initial payment only performs authorization without actually transferring funds, and the merchant later finishes the transaction by capturing the payment.
