By external payment method, do you mean the ability to select a payment gateway on the checkout which pulls the customer out of the checkout flow to process the payment before they are redirected back? If that's the case, that is supported. You would simply redirect customers to the `webUrl` property of the checkout object where they can finish the process. If the merchant has an external payment gateway set up, they will be able to select that as an option.

 

Cheers.

do you mean by redirecting "shoppers" instead of "merchants"?

@South yes, sorry. I meant customers/buyers. I'll update my post.
