Payment and shipping methods
In this tutorial we will provide you with a brief explanation on how to manage the payment and shipping methods available in the core instance of PrestaShop.
You should login to your store admin back-end:
Use the folder name you have set for your administrators’ back-end.
The first two menus we will explain are:
Payment module restriction
The first menu is for the currencies accepted on your store:
It is recommended here for the paypal payments to set the currency balance you have on your paypal account. It is easier to manage the payments and keep the accounting without the need to check exchange rates at the moment of the transactions.
The next tab is the Group Restrictions:
If you have created more than one group you may allow for it only certain payment method(s) and exclude others.
As you may want to sell your products only in certain countries you may apply the restrictions for that via the “Countries restrictions”:
Here you may restrict orders with checks and bank wires for certain countries for an example.
And the most important tab here is the first one on that “Payment” administration page “Payment modules list”:
The default modules which are available in the PrestaShop core installation are as you may see also on the above image:
Bank Wire – This is not an automated payment method. You may fill in your bank account information and when a order is placed with this payment method the customer may need to send you the details for the completed payment before you ship the product.
Cash on delivery – This method is recommended for trusted and continental deliveries only
Cheque – This is not an automated payment option. You should fill in here the details for the store owner of the name and address of the person who will cash the check. This is not very popular payment method outside the US. However you may limit is with the Countries Restriction function.
GoogleCheckout(https://checkout.google.com) – This is a pretty new payment processor compared with PayPal and MoneyBookers but it is recognized as a trusted and secured way to take payments on your store. Note that there are certain countries restrictions which may apply in order to register and take payments using GoogleCheckout
Hipay(https://www.hipay.com) – If you need to accept credit card payments you may review the policy of the payment processor and compare it with the rest of the options provided here. This merchant services provider is available in huge number of countries. Also it will provide service which will show your customers that they private data is secured.
MoneyBookers – This payment method will require MoneyBookers account to function. Depending on the account type and verification you may access MoneyBookers and Credit/Debit card payments. If you would like to start with a new MoneyBookers account you may register it here(http://www.moneybookers.com/app/)
PayPal(http://paypal.com/) – this payment method will allow you to accept payments from registered paypal users. The difference from next one we will explain is that the payments verification is manual.
PayPalAPI – In order to use this payment options you will need Paypal Premier or Pro account. Only these two PayPal account types will provide API access. This option is pretty good for store on which lots of orders are received as the payment verification is automatic.
If you do not offer downloadable products on your store you should offer for the shipment of your products. This you may manage via the “Shipping” tab in your PrestaStore administrator panel:
There is only a flat rare shipping module installed for the store by default. However you may add extra carrier modules by following the “How to install modules in PrestaShop”.
As for the modules support you may check with the carrier you will be using or check the “main community forum”( http://www.prestashop.com/forums/) of the script for contributions of such.
