How to accept payments from customers?
In this article:
- Manual payment methods
- Via payment gateway
To start accepting payments from customers, you will need to set up a payment method in your store. A payment method refers to the way in which you collect payment from your customers.
2. Manual payment methods
Manual payment method refers to transaction where the payment is not auto linked with orders.
By choosing these methods, customers won't be auto redirected to payment page upon checkout. Outside of order page, they'll need to self navigate to the chosen payment platform ( e.g. go to ATM or log in to their internet banking or wallet app account ), manually key in the order amount and complete payment. They shall notify you with payment proof once the payment is done.
Since the payment is not auto linked with order, you'll then need to self verify receipt and once confirmed, manually mark the order as paid. The amount paid using these methods is normally paid directly to merchants.
Here are the manual payment methods you can set up in EasyStore:
- Bank Transfer

3. Via payment gateway
A payment gateway is a service provider that facilitates transaction for payment made on your e-commerce website to your bank account. It allows you to accept credit / debit card or internet banking payments.
By choosing these methods, customers will be auto redirected to payment page upon checkout. The order amount will be auto applied too, customers just need to key in their account credentials ( e.g. card details or username and password of internet banking account ) and authorize charging.
Then, payment gateway will do their job to verify the payment with issuing bank. Once confirmed, orders will be auto marked as paid ( yes payment is linked with orders ). The amount paid will go to payment gateway first and settled with merchants on the settlement date decided by gateways.
To accept payment via payment gateway in your store, you just need to apply an account with payment gateway company and connect this account to your EasyStore through easy integration. Choose our pre-integrated payment gateway partners from here.
