Payment Methods

API PaymentAPI Payment is used for API orders that come in via the API.
Authorize.net (Credit Cards)Authorize.net allows you to accept credit cards from your customers. It is a major payment gateway and is represented by almost every major bank within the US.
CashThis allows you to accept cash as a tender.
CheckThis allows you to accept a check as a form of payment.
Place without PaymentThis option is available in the storefront checkout.
Purchase OrderThis option allows you to enter in a PO as a form of payment.
Request a QuoteThis option appears in the storefront checkout as a payment option.
Store CreditThis option is available to use your store credit to pay for an order or a partial amount of an order.
StripeThis payment method requires you to sign up with Stripe. To learn how to configure this gateway, read this help article here.


There are some restrictions on what payment methods are available to you depending on the subscription plan you are on.

Authorize.net:

In order to use Authorize.net you must first establish an account with them and obtain the following two codes:

Login KeyThis is the unique ID that identifies your account. See the Support Article (linked below) for more information on obtaining your Authorize.net login key.
Transaction KeyThis is the unique ID that identifies what payment types you are able to process. See the Support Article (linked below) for more information on obtaining your Authorize.net transaction key
ModeThe mode is dependent on what you are trying to do. In Lead Commerce you can set the Authorize.net gateway to Test Mode. This allows you to test the checkout using test card numbers. Please Note: You need to ensure that your Authorize.net account is also in Test Mode. Once you are ready to process transactions, you will need to ensure that both Lead Commerce as well as Authorize.net are in Live Mode (i.e. Test Mode is turned off for both).
Transaction TypeAuthorize.net allows you to either Authorize the customers card (which allocates the funds needed for the order) or Authorize and Charge in which case the funds will be allocated and collected.


See the authorize.net support article for more details

Sales Channel and Customer Types

One of the features of Lead Commerce that makes it extremely powerful and configurable are Sales Channels and Customer Types. With both of these subcomponents you can specify which Payment Methods are available for either a specific type of customer (Customer Types) or a specific Sales Channel.


You must specify which Payment Methods you want to use for each Sales Channel. In addition, you can also specify which Payment Methods are available for Customer Types as well. If you specify any Payment Methods on Customer Type, then these will supercede any settings you have selected on Sales Channel.
