I have a client that will only be accepting payments by check at this time. It is a larger company that has same clients and they bill the client and check is mailed. However they want to be able to take orders online and I really wanted to try Craft Commerce. What I need to do is somehow bypass the payment step. I would like to be able to send them an invoice, but not one that says paid. Any suggestions.
A pure ghetto method would be to just go into the pdf template and remove the "paid" markup.
I can't remember off hand, but I think it is just a div. Inspect the element to find the hook (id, class). Then either comment out the css rules or remove that element.
It looks like this is the file you need to modify:
The Manual payment gateway is designed for orders to be received without taking a live payment, or to be paid later by check or bank transfer. It allows you to mark the order as paid at a later time by clicking 'capture' in the order review screen.
The manual gateway is included in the paid version of Craft Commerce.
