Setting up a custom payment method

If you want to accept manual payments that aren't processed by Shopify, such as checks, store credit, or third-party terminals, then you can set up a custom payment method.

Shopify tracks the following order details for custom payment methods:

  • Order number
  • Associated customer information
  • Line items
  • Order total, including taxes
  • Order date/timestamps
  • Custom payment type used


  1. From Shopify POS, tap > Settings > Payment settings.

  2. Under Custom Payment Types, tap Add custom payment type.

  3. Type a payment type name into the field and tap Save.

  4. Tap to enable or disable the custom payment type.
