Use payment terms configured per customer to help them use the payment conditions guaranteed by their contract with your company.
Payment term is a set of conditions required for the sale to be completed, e.g. the period that is allowed to a buyer to pay off the amount due. Payment terms may also include cash in advance requirement, cash collection on delivery, a deferred payment period of 10/20/30 days, etc.
To use payment terms in the storefront:
- Enable Payment Terms Integration in the system configuration.
- Create a Payment Term with the conditions you would like to offer your buyers.
- Link a Payment Term to a Customer Based on Their Sales Agreement (optional).
- Create a payment rule and add your integration to it to display this method to the customers at checkout.
