Payment preferences

With PrestaShop, you can accept your customer's transactions using several different payment methods, such as checks, bank wire, cash on delivery, and through several partner modules such as PayPal, Moneybookers, HiPay, etc.

In the "Payment " page, you can see the following sections:

  • Modules list. Basically, a shortcut to "Payments & Gateways" section of the module list, in the "Modules" page. You can install modules directly from this page.
  • Three "restrictions" sections:
    • Currency restrictions. Choose with which currencies your installed payment modules should work.
    • Group restrictions. Choose with which user groups your installed payment modules should work.
    • Country restrictions. Choose with which countries your installed payment modules should work.




Installing a payment module is fundamentally no different from installing a regular module: simply click the "Install" button, and all that is left to do is to configure the module.
You should pay a lot of attention to the settings, and make sure they do point to your address or bank account. Configuring payment modules often means you must first be known by the payment service provider, meaning having an account on their service.

Let's install the "Cash on Delivery" module. Find the module in the list, and click on the "Install" button. PrestaShop will take care of everything, send you to the page with the list of all modules, and notifying you of the result. For instance, if a module needs to be configured before it can work, PrestaShop will display a notification box at the top of the page. In the case of the "Cash on delivery" module, there is nothing to configure.

Restrictions on Currencies

Depending upon the payment, the customer's choice of currency can differ.
You can limit the choice of available payment methods depending on the available currencies: you may want customers to be able to pay with any currency when using PayPal, but those paying Moneybookers should only pay using dollars, for instance.
