How To: Enable Credit Card Bypassing

If your site is setup with a payment gateway, your event registration, member dues and catalog sales processing will allow payment online. You can turn off credit card processing site-wide by going to Meetings > Settings > Payments and checking the box marked "Disable credit card processing?"

You can also control whether people can bypass the credit card payment screen and choose to pay with a check or cash. The general setting for meetings is under Meetings > Settings > Payments, and is labeled "Allow users to pay by check or cash (credit card bypass)?"

You may also customize the message that appears. Additionally, there are other settings in General > Configuration related to bypassing payments. Search for BYPASS for a full list and descriptions.
