Cheque/Money Order

From PhpCOIN Documentation

Jump to: navigation, search

Using "Cheque or Money Order" as a payment method is a simple process:

  1. Log into phpCOIN on your website as an admin
  2. Add the vendor
  3. Add paylinks


Admin -> Vendors

If "Cheque or Money Order" exists in the list of available vendors, you can simply edit the existing record. If it does not exist, then click [Add New] to add "Cheque or Money Order" as a payment method that you will accept. The info should look like the following:

Vendor ID:  	(will be auto-completed by phpCOIN)
Status:  	On (Off to disable this payment method)
Vendor Name:  	Cheque or Money Order (for the drop-down lists)
Buy Return Param Name:  cheque
Buy Return Param Value: 1
URL / Website:  http://my.phpcoin.com/mod.php?mod=orders&mode=return
Use IPN:  	YES (We do NOT want phpCOIN to mark the invoice as
               paid if the user clicks the "confirm" button
Notes:


Admin -> PayLinks

Select the PayLink you want to edit, or click [Create New] to create a new one. Paste the following code into the order link, changing the parameters shown in bold:

Vendor Product Id:  	(Auto-created by phpCOIN)
Vendor ID:  	(From the drop-down, choose "Cheque or Money Order")
Product ID:  	(From the drop-down, choose the product that this
                paylink applies to)
Description:  	Cheque or Money Order Product x (for listing)
Order Link:  	Enter your instructions, similar to the following:
 To pay by Cheque or Money Order, please........... (remainder of your instructions here)

In the above link, the <> tells phpCOIN that it should replace the tag name with the actual value at run-time. For example, leaving <return_link_buy> means that phpCOIN will enter the actual return URL when it displays an order paylink. It also means that you could move your site to another URL entirely but would not need to adjust your paylinks.

Notice that there is NO button for them to click. At this point in time, their info and order is already in the database, so you are good to go. If you wish to have "confirm" and "cancel" buttons for them to click, add the following to the "Order Link" field

 <form method="POST" action="mod.php">
 <input type="hidden" name="mod" value="orders">
 <input type="hidden" name="mode" value="return">
 <input type="hidden" name="cheque" value="1">
 <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="<prod_desc>">
 <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="<prod_id>">
 <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
 <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="<total_amt>">
 <input type="submit" value="confirm" name="confirm">
 </form>
 
 <form method="POST" action="mod.php">
 <input type="hidden" name="mod" value="orders">
 <input type="hidden" name="mode" value="return">
 <input type="hidden" name="cheque" value="0">
 <input type="submit" value="Cancel" name="cancel">
 </form>


Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Repeat the above steps as many times as necessary, so that you end up with one PayLink for each product or service that will allow Cheque or Money Order as a payment method.
