Payment Rules Configuration¶
You can configure one or more payment rules that enable the payment methods for the provided destinations.
See a short demo on how to create payment rules, or keep reading the step-by-step guidance below.
Create a Payment Rule¶
To create a payment rule:
Ensure that the integrations for the payment methods that you plan to use (PayPal Payflow Gateway, PayPal Payments Pro, etc.) are already configured.
Navigate to System > Payment Rules in the main menu. The list of payment rules opens.
Click Create Payment Rule. The corresponding page opens.
In the General Information section:
Select the Enabled check box to activate the payment rule. You may keep it clear while you are drafting and testing the conditions.
Specify the payment rule name and sort order to set the priority compared to other payment rules.
Select the payment currency.
When setting a payment rule for the PayPal integration, make sure to select the currency that PayPal supports, otherwise, the payment will not be processed. For the list of currencies supported by PayPal, refer to the Currency and Currency Codes section.
Select Stop Further Rule Processing if you would like to prevent applying other payment rules with lower priority.
In the Destinations section, add one or more destinations to apply this payment rule for. The payment rule applies when the billing address matches the provided destination(s). To add a destination:
In the Expression section, specify the expression that describes the conditions when this payment rule should be applied. For example, account = 1.
For detailed information about the expression language used in the shipping and payment rules, please see the Expression Language for Shipping and Payment Rules guide.
In the Payment Method Configurations section, you may enable one or more payment methods with this payment rule. To add a payment method, select it from the list and click + Add.
Only one unique payment method per integration may be selected in the payment rule.
To enable several PayPal Payflow Gateway/ PayPal Express options with different payment settings, create a separate payment rule for every unique option and for each specific currency. Find the list of currencies supported by PayPal in the PayPal Currency and Currency Codes topic. You still can use one copy of PayPal Payflow Gateway and one copy of PayPal Payflow Gateway Express Checkout in the same payment rule, as these are different payment methods.
The single Wirecard integration enables you to set up the following payment methods:
- WireCard – Credit Card—Via this payment method a buyer can pay for the order using a credit card.
- WireCard – PayPal—When this payment method is used, a buyer is redirected to the PayPal site where they can complete the payment using their PayPal account or credit card.
- WireCard – SEPA—Via this payment method a buyer can pay for the order in EUR using a SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area) payment.
You can add any combination of these payment methods in a single payment rule. However, if you want to enable WireCard – SEPA, then in step 3 you must select EUR for Currency.
In the Websites section, specify the website(s) that the payment rule should apply to, if you have more than one website. This field is optional and may be left empty. Hold the Ctrl key to choose several websites, if necessary.
Please note that application of payment rules to websites is only available for Enterprise customers.
- When no website is selected, the payment rule is always applied by default.
- When at least one website is selected, the payment rule will apply to the orders created in the storefront of the specified website.
