If you want your customers to use payment methods other than credit cards on the Commerce web store, you can create custom payment methods that are displayed on the Commerce web store and accepted as valid payment methods for web orders.

You can also integrate alternative non-credit card payment methods provided by payment service providers (PSP) into your NetSuite account. For more information on these payment methods, see the help topic Alternative Non-Credit Card Payment Methods for Web Store Orders.

To set up an alternative non-credit card payment method:

  1. Go to Setup > Accounting > Accounting Lists.

  2. Filter Accounting Lists for Payment Methods. In the Type field, select Payment Methods.

  3. Click New to create a payment method.

  4. Leave the Credit Card box blank.

  5. Check the Display in Web Site box.

  6. If this payment method needs a payment processing profile, select a payment processing profile in the Supporting Merchant Accounts box.

  7. If this payment method redirects your web store customers to check out on a third-party website, check the External Checkout box.


    Check this box for online alternative payment methods offered by payment service providers. With these payment methods, Commerce web store customers can check out using payment information that they have stored on the third-party website, without disclosing their credit card numbers or any other credentials on your Commerce web store.

  8. Click Save.

After setting up the payment method, note that it does not automatically display on the Payment Information screen in the Commerce web store. You must set up your website to display non-credit card payment methods. Follow the steps below.


Before you expose non-credit card payment methods on your web site, make sure you have associated these payment methods with payment processing profiles, or you have set up a sales order processing workflow to collect payment for inventory shipped.

To display a non-credit card payment method on the web site:

  1. Go to Setup > Site Builder > Set Up Web Site.

  2. Click the Shopping subtab.

  3. Check the Allow non-credit card payment methods during checkout box.

  4. Click Save.

Now, the payment method you set up displays on a Site Builder site.
