multiple payment options possible

hi there,

one of the things I had to check during the evaluation of foxycart is that it should be possible for our customers to pay offline, to get a bill from us.
everything seemed ok, BUT, I want to let customers choose on how they want to pay!
is there a possiblity to let them choose?
I couldn't check this with the free account, and now that I've payed, I realize that one can only choose between ONE possibility.
uahh! aaargh!
how should we proceed to let customers pay by bill OR by credit card?

regards
stefan

    First things first, could you vote for Multiple Payment Options here: http://requests.foxycart.com/

    So with that out of the way: What are you using for your payment gateway at this point? If you're planning on using the offline processing you could do a little extra javascript to allow the user to select between the default CC fields or the PO field. If you're using a gateway it's a little trickier, so let us know.

    hi I did vote on requests:
    http://requests.foxycart.com/pages/4162-general-requests/suggestions/78980-multiple-payment-options-po-cc-etc-
    I don't seem to be the only one... uff...

    could you elaborate your method please?
    what's CC and PO?
    do you have a working example somewhere?

    we're planning on selling items via credit card soon (as soon as paypal standard is available) but we defenitely don't want to loose the ability of purchase order (which is switzerlands preferred payment method and also the most flexible.. you can trust swiss people that's why we use this method... ;-)

    cheers

    "CC" = credit card. "PO" = purchase order.

    Haha, you can trust the Swiss with money, that's for sure, though the US IRS has recently begun to penetrate into the privacy of Swiss accounts. Interesting stuff, there.

    Anyway, are you using a gateway currently?
  • we are using Purchase Order at the moment!

    but wer're planning a gateway, but still, we don't want to loose PO! is this possible?
    could you elaborate a little?

    cheers

    Hey stefan. That's something that has been requested quite a bit and it's definitely on our list. If you haven't already, please vote for it here: http://requests.foxycart.com/pages/4162-general-requests/suggestions/78980-multiple-payment-options-po-cc-etc-
  • Multiple payment options per category would be awesome indeed. Just like Multiple Shipping options. Why can't I give that 10 votes?
