In the Online Marketing area, click on eShop.

Click Manage eShop.

From the main menu, select Settings > Payment.

Select the desired payment method from the dropdown list:

  • Third party payment methods such as PayPal, BillSAFE, Skrill

  • Free: With this payment method there are no additional costs for the customer.

  • Fixed price: With this payment method the customer must pay a fixed fee.

  • Exemption limit: With this payment method, the customer must pay a fixed fee up to a certain order value. There are no additional costs above this order value.

  • Direct debit: With this payment method, the customer must provide his account details during the order process. The data is checked for completeness, but not for correctness, that is, the system neither checks whether the account data is correct nor whether the account is funded. There are no additional costs for the customer.

  • Direct debit by fax: With this payment method, the customer is shown a fax form during the order process, with the help of which he can send his account data to you. There are no additional costs for the customer.

Click on the General tab and set up the following:
