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.

  • First time I have ever used Craft Commerce. My client is very specific about what he wants and I am currently working in the trial version to make sure it will do the job. I used the dummy gateway, and still needed to add a credit card number to continue. So with the paid version I will be able to not have the payment screen at all? Apr 29, 2016 at 13:05
  • I love Commerce so far. You did a great job working it with Craft. Just have an issue with variants. Each product has five variants, but I only want one of those variants to show based upon currentUser. Week and a half of searching and still cannot figure out how to do it. Apr 29, 2016 at 13:08
  • @user1663102 correct, the full version allows a simple: 'complete order' button with the manual payment method. May 2, 2016 at 16:26
