You probably already know that Magento allows you to set up different payment methods – check and money order, PayPal, all sorts of credit cards and much more.

Turning payment methods on and off in Magento is easy, all you have to do is log in to your Admin Panel and follow the steps from our tutorial.

Let’s begin by navigating to System and clicking on Configuration.

Next, from the left-hand side menu, choose Payment Methods under Sales.

Setting up payment methods
First, we will click on Saved CC and determine Credit Card settings.

We need to choose whether we want it enabled or disabled.

We chose Enabled, left Credit Card as a title and moved on to choosing which credit card types we would allow as a payment method on our store.

Same as always, to choose more allowed credit card types, use Ctrl+Click, or hold the mouse button and drag to select.

Next, we mark that it is needed to request credit card security code and choose applicable countries.

Now we will determine other payment options.

Click on Check/Money order, enable it, and repeat the process.

Add applicable countries and move on to setting other payment methods.

Do the same for Bank Transfer Payment, or any other payment method that you want to provide for your customers, and make sure you save your settings once you’re satisfied with how everything looks.

That means finding orange Save Config button in the upper right corner of the page and saving your configuration.

And you’re done!
