Logicblock lets you choose from a number of different payment methods. To access the Payment Methods section, go to Config > Order Settings > Payment Methods from the main navigation menu.

- Enable Purchase Order Number On All Payments: Always displays the Purchase Order field on the checkout page.
- Require PO number when Purchase Order is selected: Forces the user to enter a purchase order number if they select PO as a payment method prior to checkout.
- No Payment Needed Description Text: You can use this field to enter text you want displayed when orders do not require payment.
- Maximum PO Number Length: Maximum number of characters you want to accept for the PO number.
- Show Detailed Payment Errors: Provide additional details to the customer when payment fails to go through.
Payment Method Filtering
This functionality allows you to choose which payment methods different customers can use. Here is how you can set up payment method filters:
Step 1: Create a User Group
In the admin under People > More > User Groups & Permissions
Create a New Group
Skip the first box, do not assign any permissions to customer groups.
Hit "Save Changes".
Step 2: Filter Payment Method
Next, we're going to go edit the payment method.
- Go to Config > Order Settings > Payment Methods
- Click EDIT on the payment method you want to limit visibility on.
- Uncheck the box for "Visible to All Users".
Select the Group from the right that you want to make this payment option visible to.
Click the arrow to move it to the left.
It will then appear on the left.
Hit "Save" in the top right.
Saving these changes will now show this payment method only to the customers that you have put into these Groups.
Visible in Roles
Finally, you can select the user(s) that you want to have access to the payment method by manually editing the user and selecting the appropriate group under their account settings. This can also be done en-masse via spreadsheet.
You can quickly export your users and under the accountrole column header enter the group name (case sensitive). If user has more than one group assigned, separate groups using a semicolon ";". Then send the file to us via a support ticket to be imported onto your site.
We recommend either Authorize.net or PayPal for Business as our preferred payment gateways.
To accept credit card payments online you need a relationship with a payment gateway. A Payment Gateway is a service that authorizes and processes payments for online retailers in real-time. It is the equivalent of a physical POS (Point-of-sale) terminal located in most retail outlets. Payment gateways encrypt sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, to ensure that information passes securely between the customer and the merchant.
Select your Payment Gateway and click "Edit"

Require Purchase Order Roles
This feature lets you choose which customers will be presented with the option of paying via purchase order during checkout.
To allow a user group to pay with a purchase order, simply drag the desired group from the right box to the left box that says Member Of.

Logicblock supports integration with several third-party tax providers. To get to the Taxes page, go to Config > Order Settings > Taxes. As you can see on this page, we recommend Avalara and TaxJar as they work most smoothly with our system's framework.
TaxCloud is a free service that keeps track of taxes all over the country.
If you decide to manage your taxes with TaxCloud spreadsheets, the rates are not updated automatically and must be periodically updated.
