Payment On Invoice

Fruhmann edited this page Jan 7, 2019 · 26 revisions

With Payment On Invoice, payment is made on receipt of goods or services. An invoice is either delivered with the ordered items or emailed to the consumer immediately after order placement, or both. Payment terms (e.g. merchant's IBAN/BIC, due date) are usually stated on the invoice.

Payment On Invoice Configuration

  1. Select Extensions/Extensions.
  2. From the extension type dropdown list, select Payments.
  3. Scroll down to Wirecard Payment On Invoice.
  4. Click the edit button in the Wirecard Payment On Invoice line to open the Payment On Invoice configuration page: Payment On Invoice Configuration

Payment Action

Payment On Invoice transactions allow only payment action Authorization, which triggers the transaction type authorization for payment method Payment On Invoice.

Successful transactions (i.e. payments for orders) are not yet confirmed, but the consumer receives an invoice with a provider transaction reference ID and merchant bank account details. Once the consumer has successfully transferred the outstanding amount, the transaction will be captured.

Should the shop system be unable to match a payment transaction with an order, the corresponding order will not be updated. You can, however, inspect the transaction and update the corresponding order yourself.


The descriptor is the text representing an order on the consumer's bank statement issued by their bank. It provides information for the consumer, as it associates a specific debit on the consumer's account with the respective purchase in your shop.

  • If the descriptor feature is Disabled, the consumer's bank generates a default entry for each purchase.

  • If the descriptor is Enabled, the descriptor text consists of the first 9 characters of the shop name and the order number.

  • To modify the descriptor, use the method createDescriptor in the file catalog/model/extension/payment/wirecard_pg/helper/additional_information_helper.php.

Enable this feature to send the descriptor with each request/response.

Send additional Information

If this feature is Enabled, additional data will be sent for the purpose of fraud protection. This additional data includes billing/shipping address, shopping basket, and descriptor.

Note: The additional information includes the descriptor even if the descriptor option is set to Disabled.

Payment Details On Invoice

If this feature is Enabled, the payment details for the purchase will automatically be added to the invoice you can generate in the OpenCart order management.

Delete Canceled Order

If this feature is Enabled, every time the payment process is canceled before completion of the authorization/purchase, the corresponding order will be automatically deleted from the OpenCart order management.

Delete Failed Order

If this feature is Enabled, every time the payment process fails to complete the authorization/purchase successfully, the corresponding order will be automatically deleted from the OpenCart order management.

Supported Post-Processing Operations

To access post-processing operations, go to Wirecard Transactions options to open the transaction table, which lists all successful transactions: Wirecard Payment Gateway Options

Click a Transaction ID to open the transaction detail view. It shows all available post-processing operations, e.g.: Wirecard Payment Gateway Transactiondetails

Payment On Invoice supports the post-processing operation Cancel.

Cancel: Triggers transaction type void-authorization. The payment will be canceled/voided and the corresponding order in OpenCart order management will be updated to status Canceled.

Please be aware that stock management is not included in the post-processing operations triggered in the Wirecard extension but only in OpenCart order management.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
