Option of an off-line payment ?

Is there possible for customer to select an "pay on delivery" for a purchase, or is the only option an on-line CC payment ?

Statisticly, at this point,, 60% of my customers want this kind of payment, and it works great.

Wondering if this is possible with this cart system ?

Not at this time. Our software is specifically designed to work with PayPal and Google Checkout and later we will be adding other merchants.

Offline payments will probably not be included in the software for security reasons. You would need to have a secure location to store credit card data which means some sort of database would need to be setup.

Hm,,

My englis is not the best, so i probably have not described the situation.

i mean off-line like :
1. Customer buys something
2. Cart system sends info on purchase to my e-mail
3. I send the merchandise to customer
4. Customer pays the postman before he gives him the package.

This is what i ment :cool:

Ok that makes sense. Honestly I don't see anything like that appearing in the software anytime soon.

Scott: I wonder if this can be easily done with a minor tweak in the code: have an option that when clicking on the Checkout button, instead of of hooking into the payment module, it simply sends the cart's content as an email much like what the Flash Form does. Or, is the cart's info being managed by PayPal/Google instead?

The issue is where to send the credit card information when the click purchase. We would not want to send that over e-mail so there has to be a place to store it.

There is no credit card info included in this e-mail. The customer does not nead to enter a credit card for this kind of purchase because he pays cash to the postman on delivery.

Customer only neads to enter the shipping address (his info).

cod or money order would not be a bad idea

these payments won't need a database for storage

How about on the view cart page bottom where it reads "Print This Page" adding a second link "for mail in orders" where we can put our address and money orders, etc accepted?

The shoping cart already doesn't have live inventory so there is no harm there and the link would be before the software tries to submit a credit card number.

Or when you add the customizable extra pages I will put one in there I suppose! :cool:
