Payment In Advance

Olivia Felsberger edited this page Aug 9, 2019 · 1 revision

With Payment In Advance, the consumer places an order and pays after receiving the merchant's payment details (IBAN/BIC, due date). When the transaction is completed the merchant delivers the goods or services. The purchase is balanced with the delivery.

Payment In Advance Configuration

  1. Select Shop Settings/Payment Methods.

  2. Scroll down to Wirecard Payment In Advance. edit

  3. Click Wirecard Payment In Advance to open the Payment In Advance configuration page: Payment in Advance Configuration

Purchase Price From/To

During checkout, the consumer can choose Payment In Advance only if the total purchase price is within the specified limits. Select the limits according to your Wirecard contract.


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 is set to No, the consumer's bank generates a default entry for each purchase.

  • If the descriptor is set to Yes, the default descriptor text consists of the first 9 characters of the shop name and the order number. To modify the descriptor, use the method getDescriptor in the file Extend/Model/Payment_Gateway.php.

    • Allowed characters: umlaut, 0-9, a-z, A-Z, , +, ,, -, .
    • Max. length: 27 characters

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

Send Additional Information

If this feature is set to Yes, 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 No.

Delete Canceled Order

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

Delete Failed Order

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

Payment Action

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

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.

In case the shop system is 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.

Supported Post-Processing Operations

To access post-processing operations, go to Wirecard Transactions 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 Transaction Details

Payment In Advance supports the post-processing operation Cancel.

Cancel: Triggers transaction type void-authorization. The payment will be canceled/voided and the corresponding order in OXID 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 module but only in OXID order management.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
