In this article, we’ll consider the basic payment methods supported by Magento 2 and describe how to configure them for a web store.
Initially, Magento 2 supports several basic payment methods that do not require the services of third-party payment processing companies.
To configure any of the methods, first, you should go to Stores in your Admin Panel and then open the Configuration section. From this section, you can start to set up the required method.
The configuration of every payment method starts with choosing the Merchant Location of the store, for which the settings should be applied. To do this, expand the box next to the Merchant Country field.
Merchant Location for Magento Payments
If you leave this field blank, the country you specified in the General Config section will be selected automatically.
So, let’s consider each method individually.
1. Cash On Delivery Payment
The Cash On Delivery Payment method can be set as the default payment option for a web store. If needed, this method can be chosen for some particular countries.
First, in the Configuration menu, expand Sales and click on the Payment methods tab in the panel under Sales.
Here, you will see the list of payment methods. Find the Cash On Delivery Payment section and click on it to expand. The panel with all the required settings will be opened.
