Offline Payments are a Payment Method that allows for vast flexibility regarding forms of payment used for a purchase. These can be cash, checks, Paypal, Venmo, Apple Pay Cash, Bank Deposits, or any of a company’s accepted forms of payment.

Offline Payment Process For a Customer
When a customer is in the Order Checkout page, at the point of payment, they can choose Offline Payment as an option by selecting it in the Add a Payment Method menu.
The Customer will proceed to place the order, which will internally mark it as a pending order, and it will be paid for at a later time.
With their preferred method of communication, a company will need to reach out to the customer to give instructions on how to submit payment for their placed order.
Following the company’s payment instructions, the customer pays the Offline Payment. Once the payment is received, an admin will then need to manually mark the order as paid.

When the order is marked as paid, the shipping process begins for the customer’s order.
