I was just playing around with my payment methods. I deleted them. Then I tried to re-add them with the same names and settings but I couldn't. "Name "Manual" has already been taken."

Apparently they have been soft deleted? How do you reinstate a soft delete?

Commerce soft deletes payment methods instead of hard deletes them because even if a payment method is no longer in use, you still need to be able to have a reference to them for existing orders.

You can "un-delete" the payment method by going into the craft_commerce_paymentmethods table in the database and changing the isArchived column from 1 back to 0.
