Our client does not want to use an online payment gateway

Our client does not want to use an online payment gateway but to take payment via cheque. Partly due to fees and secondly he knows the companies involved.

How can I configure payment gateways to use this type of payment. I’d like the company to have to register and then once payment made be allowed to view the restricted content.

thanks in advance.

    Hi @jjma,

    For this, here’s what I’d recommend

    Create a subscription with limited access that has a display price of what you would like to charge, but set the actual price to $0 Make this subscription public.

    Enable the free subscriptions gateway.

    Next create another subscription that is not public, and has the actual access rules your users will need.

    When they sign up, they’ll initially be placed on that limited access level, then you can manually upgrade their account from “Membership -> All members” after receiving payment

    Hi there Jon,

    I hope you are well today and thanks for your question.

    Currently out of the box there isn’t a manual payment gateway unfortunately, though i’ll flag the lead developer to see if there is any possible workaround for this :slight_smile:

    I have checked on my own install and can’t see a way that we can do this, but hopefully the lead developer may have a way :slight_smile:


    Kind Regards
