To the right of these settings, you will also see an action wheel with an "Advanced Settings" listing. Clicking this button will give you the following configuration options:

  • Order Amount Min; & Order Amount Max:
    These were set during the initial creation of the payment method (see step 7 above). Here you can edit them as needed.

  • Customer Group:
    This was set during the initial creation of the method (See steps above). Here you can edit the setting as needed.

    • "All": Will make the method available to all of your shoppers - regardless of the pricing group they belong to.

    • "None": Will make the method available to shoppers who do not yet belong to a customer group.

    • "Phone Orders": Will make the method available only when using the Phone Orders function.

    • Individual Group: Or you may limit the use of the payment method so that it applies only to one of your existing customer groups.

  • Order Status
    This setting will determine which order status that orders using this method will automatically go into. Your choices are New or Unpaid.
    Since it is an online payment method, you will likely want it to go to new since payment is typically applied by the gateway.

  • Country/State Exclude List
    When you initially added the payment method, you set the country and state that it would apply to (See step 6 above)
    With the "Edit Exclude List" link, you can further limit which countries and/or states that are excluded from using the method.

  • Confirmation message

Once your advanced settings are configured, click the "Save" button to set them. After clicking Save, you'll once again be at the payment module. Your final step is to save your changes.
