At this time, it's not possible to set or restrict payment methods for your customers checking out on your store based on a customer tag. Payment methods are a store-wide feature that cannot be segmented out based on conditions.
With that said, is there a particular reason why you want to limit the customers available payment methods? If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
thanks for answering
my goal is to show only the manual payment method to a group of trusted users, is there any way to achieve this
This is something we really need too.
Our use case is that we want to have all of our customers paying by credit card to lessen the accounting workload of tracking Direct Debit payments.
However we have a couple of big customers who insist on Direct Debit and they are big enough that we have to allow this for them. But we don't want it to be an option for the others.
And no, leaving it available and then just telling them afterwards that they can't use it is not acceptable as that just upsets people.
I would like to have this feature to only allow bank-transfer/invoice payment option to wholesale customers. I don't want to offer this to regular customer as cash-collection becomes a headache otherwise.
It seems Shopify-plus enables this but it is way too expensive for SMB while wholesale channel is a very common way to sell for SMB.
Any updates on this?
I would also like this feature for trade customers where we give a discount and want these customers to pay by bank transfer as we cannot bear the cost of payment fees in addition to the discount.
Yes, same here.
We want to allow our resellers to select payment per invoice but certainly don't want all other customers to be able to use this method!
This is NEEDED BADLY!!!
Currently we tell these customers to create their carts and abandon them, then contact us, so we finish their order.
An ugly hack.
Especially, as you do not allow the shop owner to convert an abandoned cart into an actual order. So we have to copy everything by hand. SUCKS!!!
+1 to this. It would be ideal to be able to set different payment options for different user groups and help automate the management of Wholesale /VIP customers
It's quite silly how Shopify includes alternative payment methods but no method to restrict them
We want to add a manual payment method for select customers, and we can't do it - not even with an app?
Shopify allows us to have the manual method for everyone, or not at all. So our choice is between a massive financial liability, or not implementing basic features that all our non-Shopify based competitors offer.
In this regard our business is now at a competitive disadvantage, for no reason other than that we chose Shopify for our platform.
+1 to this, we need to be able to offer alternative payment methods to our wholesale customers that are not to be available to the general public. Crude workarounds are not ideal, Shopify you should really look into implementing this.
This is a glaring omission to Shopify! We too need to be able to restrict the manual payment to certain customers only. Please add this capability.
+1 We also need this feature very badly so that we can show Net 30 as an option to our wholesale customers. I figured there must be some way to show the option to customers based on their tag(s), but it seems there isn't. There seems to be a really strong desire for this feature by at least some segment of your customers. Can we at least have a decent workaround, please? A way to hack it together using liquid to suppress or enable based on the customer's tag? Something?
I’ve just had a chat with Shopify support who agree this would be a very good feature for many users and is going to submit it to the developers, he suggested they will look at demand from this thread too so if this is a feature you want please reply and give it a +1 so we can show Shopify we need it!!
+10 this work makes life so much less of a pain. We having to do this all manually right now, not even able to run the order through Shopify because of the fact that we can't select payment methods that are not available everywhere!
+100 we need this for our wholesale clients, we have managed to be creative with different hack, but its still not nice to show all the options in the checkout.
Yes. We need this too. Currently we are telling our most trusted customers to mail us manually if they want to pay upon invoice. This is really ugly and against the ease of use and customer friendly features that Shopify known for.
Please add this feature sooner than later. +1
