Manual Payment Processing
Already have a merchant account
If you have a merchant account for your bricks and
mortar business, manual processing can work for you
as well. With your e-store, you can take orders and
periodically enter your sales into your point-of-sale
terminal. Using this method will save you from having
to signup for additional services.
Adjustable payment terms & payment periods
Even though most internet transactions are handled
with a credit card, not all businesses work in this
manner. For example, if you have repeat customers who
are given Net 30 terms, they can place orders online
and you can bill them later. You are able to offer your
customers the convenience of placing Web orders without
having to change your way of doing business.
Note about manual payment processing
One thing to keep in mind with manual processing is that
orders are put on hold until you login and mark them as
paid. If you are selling electronic downloads, your
customers will not have access to their download until you
log in to your control panel and process the order.
