Will orders using a Misc or Open Terms payment method be marked as Paid in Pressero?

Payment methods on Pressero can be setup as integrated payment methods (such as Authorize.net, Paypal, Moneris, etc.) or they can be setup as non-integrated payment methods, called a Misc or Open Terms payment method. Any site needs to have at least one payment method of either type available for checkout on the site.
A non-integrated payment method that uses a Method Type of Misc, which is also sometimes referred to as an Open Terms payment method, allows the site users to checkout without providing an immediate payment on the orders. An integrated payment method is one that puts the site user to a payment window to enter their credit-card informaiton after checking out from the site.
Each order placed on the system has a Paid setting. The Paid status of the order can be seen on the orders list in Pressero admin, on the order history on the site, when editing the order in Pressero admin, when using the Report Writer to generate a report on the orders, or checking the downloadable job tickets and detail reports for the order.
Orders placed with a non-integrated payment method either get marked Paid or not marked Paid depending on the price amount on the order.
  • An order placed using a Misc (Open Terms) payment method with an order price of $0.00 WILL be marked as Paid after checkout.
  • An order placed using a Misc (Open Terms) payment method with an order price of greater than $0.00 WILL NOT be marked Paid after checkout.
The reasoning here is that if there is no dollar amount on the order, the order does not require a payment. If the dollar amount is greater than zero then there is still payment required on that order, and that payment will happen later outside of the Pressero site, but will be recorded on the order in Pressero.
An order that is not marked paid will not finalize to being a full order from the Pending orders listing. Any pending orders will have to be marked paid by adding a payment transaction to the order by editing them from the Pending orders list, and using the Payment area and the +Add Payment button.
