How do I integrate and manage the Cheque/DD payment option at my web store?

  • The Cheque/DD checkout allows your customers to order the desired products without paying order amount while raising the order. These customers prefer to do the payment for their purchases through the orthodox/traditional methods like Cheque or DD (Demand Draft).

  • If you properly configure this checkout option to a product, end-user will be given an option to complete the order by choosing the Cheque/DD checkout option in the Payment Options section of Checkout page for that product.

  • If the end-users opt the Cheque/DD checkout option, they will be asked to send the Cheque/DD for the order amount as per the details mentioned by you.

  • You need to carefully fill the details like the cheques/DD should be drawn in favor of whom and should be payable at which place.

  • A particular group of customers may feel more secure with this checkout and it builds more confidence on your transactions. You can configure the 'Cheque/DD' checkout to your web store from here and change the help content for end-user about this payment option.

  • You can use the default 'Cheque/DD' payment option for your store or you can customize the 'Cheque/DD' payment option as per stock location if you deal with location-based products.
