This is the Readme for the Magento extension PaymentFilter.
This module enables you to select which payment methods are available for every customer and customer group. Also, Payment methods can be disabled for specific products. A customer can only use the payment methods during checkout available to his (customer group OR himself) AND not disabled for the products in the shopping cart.
This extension supports Magento 1.3 through 1.9.
After installing this extension you have to configure the payment methods available to each customer group. You do that in the admin interface under Customers > Customer Groups. The default is NONE, so if you don't do that NO payment methods will be available and customers will not be able to check out.
The default for products is to allow ALL payment methods, so you only have to configure the payment methods available to every group. Only change the product level payment method configuration if you want to disable one or more for a specific products.
The whole extension can be disabled in "System > Config > Sales > Checkout" on a Global or Website scope.
If you ever uninstall the extension (I don't hope so ;)) your site will be broken, because Magento doesn't support database updates on uninstalls to remove attributes.
To fix the error, execute the following SQL:
DELETE FROM `eav_attribute` WHERE attribute_code = 'product_payment_methods'; DELETE FROM `core_resource` WHERE code = 'payfilter_setup'; ALTER TABLE `customer_group` DROP `allowed_payment_methods';
IMPORTANT! Then clear the magento cache.
This module replaces the extension RicoNeitzel_CGroupPayments that only included the option to filter by customer groups. That module is no longer continued. Please install this module instead.
If you have ideas for improvements or find bugs, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, with RicoNeitzel_PaymentFilter as part of the subject line.
