The Other Payments option should be selected when the default payment methods are not appropriate. Other payments are commonly used for Checks, External Credit Card Reader Terminals, Chip and Pin Terminals, or Gift Cards or Other Payment Types. Map any external identifying numbers, IDs and verification codes manually in the provided field at checkout. Any number you input is added on the order details page in WooCommerce for accounting tracking. The name Other Payments, can be renamed to customize the title for your business.
For Example: When accepting Check Payments, the cashier will input a Check Number in the provided POS field. When using an External Terminal Card reader, a transaction ID will be provided by that standalone system. The Transaction ID can be added in the provided POS field, allowing the business to map the transactions to the WooCommerce order. The Other Payments method should be selected to accept other payments like Gift Cards or any other external payment method that requires a number to be added to the WooCommerce order.

Frequently Asked Questions
No! We believe you work hard to earn sales for your business. We don’t change any additional fees or commissions for payments process by the POS or processed by the Pay by WC, WooCommerce payment bridge.
If you are using Ingenico or Stripe credit card readers, yes! If you are using another credit card reader device, no. Why? The quick answer. The challenge for credit card readers, we need to integrate the SDK for the payment process to support their reader. As a result, we add support for credit card readers on a case by case basis and depending on demand from our customers needs. Get your credit card reader device on our list of readers to support, submit here for review.
You are using a payment mobile app, external credit card reader device or chip and pin reader device. Here’s how it works. On the POS, the cashier will select all the products the Customer wants to buy. Once the order is ready for checkout. Click Pay. At the payment options. Click “Other Payments” (This can be renamed to customize for the business). Now after clicking Other Payments. You will see an Order ID number was generated for the order. The Cashier will now go to the payment mobile app, external credit card reader or chip and ping for payment. Manually type in the price amount of the order from the POS view. For example, type to charge: $25.00 and in the notes add the Order ID from the POS. The Customer can use that reader to insert their credit card. The payment will be processed by that device (Not the POS). Once it’s done processing, most mobile payment apps, external credit card readers or chip and pin readers provide a transaction ID or payment ID of the payment being successful. After the payment is done, take that transaction ID or payment ID and manually type it into the POS. Click Pay. The order is now processed in the POS. The order data will include the transaction ID or payment ID from the payment to perform reporting if required in the future by the business owner. The POS will only be used to create orders and determine the price to use on the the payment mobile app, external credit card reader or chip and pin reader to process for payment.

Yes. Using the Pay by WC, WooCommerce Payment Bridge, we support PayPal. Customers can use the QR code workflow to process a PayPal payment directly on their device.
Unfortunately, the POS doesn’t support split payments functionality. The POS is built on top of WooCommerce core functionality. Any features and functionality in WooCommerce, we can develop parity with the POS plugin app. Right now, WooCommerce doesn’t support native functionality for splitting payments. As a result, our POS doesn’t offer this functionality. If or when WooCommerce adds split payments functionality, we will definitely add the support. This is a popular request from our community of users, we’ve also asked our users to raise the feature request with WooCommerce on their GitHub page here: https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce/issues, the more users requesting the support the higher the likelihood the feature will be added. Sorry we can’t offer this support now, but hopefully we can in the future.
No. At this time, a data connection is needed to process any payments types for orders placed in the POS. We currently don’t support an offline mode.
