Magento 2 Payment Methods & Extensions

Starting an eCommerce site can be difficult, and one of the most common problems our clients run into when starting their site is payment methods. Many platforms don’t offer modern solutions to payment methods or are heavily burdened by their inefficient payment methods.

Luckily, Magento 2 offers real-world solutions at cheaper prices than other platforms offering similar solutions. 

Setting up payments with Magento 2 is much simpler than other platforms. To start, head over to the “stores” tab on your Magento interface. Under “All Stores,” you’ll spot a button for configuration. After clicking it, you’ll enter the “sales” tab. You’ll be able to manage all your payment methods from this tab.

When you first set up your payment options, make sure to set up your location under “merchant location.” After setting your location, you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of payment methods including Braintree, bank transfer, money orders, check orders, and many options for PayPal. Many of these options require additional setup so make sure after selecting them you check out their details with the drop-down arrow located next to them.

Some users of Magento 2 need other payment options available to them beyond what it offers “out of the box.” Fortunately, Magento has a large support for 3rd party payment extensions to make this possible.

Along with adding different payment methods, some 3rd party extensions will allow you to manage extra fees in addition to normal payment. This can be helpful for your eCommerce site if you decide to charge cart fees to generate extra profit. Some of these extensions can even handle shipping fees.

Another benefit to payment extensions is that they let you customize your customers’ experience at checkout. Many extensions will let you add service options such as gift wrapping options and warranty options. These choices will make your eCommerce site more competitive and user friendly.

Keep in mind you will need to pay for these extensions; however, North Texas Web Designs can help you through the process.

  • The most important thing these days is SERVICE…period. That is, a company provides it, or they don’t! Now don’t get taken like we all have, there are many levels of service from basically nothing (“are you sure you have the device plugged IN and turned ON?” or “I can’t understand what you are saying, can you speak English? or do you even know how to spell WEB PAGE?….totally useless service) to placing the service call, having a human answer the phone that can speak and understand English without a “out on the edge” accent and expeditiously remediate the problem! One that is with you the entire way. In my opinion PWD/NTWD provides the highest level.I have been with NTWD for about 5 years with several Web Sites and numerous email accounts and yes I did have a glitsh, well more it was a change of server. I was on the phone with them and the problem was resolved, just like that! It wasn’t really a problem but a change in configuration, even better.The next most important thing is quality. NTWD provides top quality work. Basically anyone can build a web page or host data or email. Mike at NTWD delivers the best that is possible, always there and only a phone call away….if you happen to need help. SECURITY????? That is a big concern and should be of everyone! I am totally concerned about security but not with my NTWD services. I know they are covered, Mike keeps up with technology.I have a choice and so do you. You want to have a strong and SAFE site and service? Do not go any further, simply go to NTWD. As an overall package (design and service), there is none better.Dang I forgot to mention money, fees, skins, bucks, green backs, dough, bread….etc. You want a strong quality product (and service) for a very reasonable price……. The work is done for you. Go to NTWD. Don’t go anywhere else. If you already have, get your tail to NTWD as soon as you can.
