Shopfront supports creating and using an unlimited amount of Payment Methods. Payment Methods are any type of payment you can receive, this can include Cash, EFTPOS, Direct Debit and more.
Note; Newly created payment methods will need to be enabled for the registers individual to be able to finalise sales with them. Please refer to the related section below on how to enable payment methods for registers.
