Why did we add the option for Manual Credit Card Payments?
The origin of the idea behind this extension was that one of our clients primarily made their sales through service representatives. Well, out of the box WooCommerce does not support this feature. Closest thing to it is 1 of 2 options:
- Create order through admin area – email customer invoice
- Log out of admin and go through the checkout process posing as the customer
Are You Serious?!
This prompted us to search for a working option – saw a few options, each had their own problems. Pain in the @$$ to install, no installation instructions, altering pricing for the store, not enough features, and so on.. I am sure you know what I mean.
So we started from scratch, which turned into a evolving grand slam of useful features. First we need payments, then we needed to convert customers, then we needed to calculate shipping rates, then we needed to reload previous orders.
We have gotten some great recommendations, feature requests and do plan on setting up a roadmap to make the perfect plugin.
With a simple interface to help you close sales faster – everything you need is on one page, even a quick save button in the middle of the order screen so you don’t have to jump to the top!
To name a few benefits of our Manual Credit Card Processing for WooCommerce:
- Earn more revenue
- Close sales fast, efficient and smooth
- Works with Credit Card Payment Gateways
- Integrates Existing Shipping Methods
- Converts Guests into Customers
- Quickly Replicate Previous Order (no subscriptions required)
Is taking phone orders using manual credit card payments PCI compliant?
Manual Credit Card Processing for WooCommerce will not effect your websites PCI Compliance and SAQ process. We take advantage of the existing payment gateways and shipping extensions that your website uses already, adding no extra risk. The forms and options available are provided by the currently activated plugins. We have found a way to tap into them for your convenience!
Just got the plugin, it really does solve this gap in WooCommerce. One thing holding me back is integration with Dynamic pricing. We use ‘WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing’ for role-based pricing and qty discounts. This plugin can calculate shipping (sweet!), capture a cc on back-end (awesome!), save cc to user account (huge!), but doesn’t look like the pricing updates based on the role of the customer. I haven’t found any plug-in that can do this. Maybe the hook isn’t there??
Add working with dynamic pricing to the wishlist, please!
Thanks for the great feedback, that is a great point to bring up with Dynamic Pricing as I do see it is a popular plugin!
I will get that added into our roadmap and put it on our ToDo list.
