Offline Payment option for Ecommerce

Some clients, especially with larger ticket items, or items that are customized post purchase (where the cost could change), would be best served by allowing them to pay offline (by check or other method). This would allow orders to be accepted and dealt with and the payment to be mailed or whatever. the admin then could check a box to say it is paid for and fulfill it when they get the payment.

Many clients do not want to pay processing fees on either side for multi-thousand dollar items, but want to sell them online (many of these are older traditional businesses who typically process payments by mail or phone and don't want their cool new website to break their internal processes).

    I did come up with a work around solution. We have put a couple sales through it now and it seems fine, I created a new page with a form that is setup like the check out and I was able to have a section of the page populate with the cart items with totals using java script. When the customer submits the form the cart items and totals come through with the form results. After the customer gets the bank account details and an invoice and we have our own email workflow on Active Campaign that replaces the web flow confirmation emails.
    Hope that helps. Again this is a workaround but it works with not disrupting the sales process.

    I will now be working on developing a solution ourselves for this.

    This is an absolute fundamental to eCommerce. How and why is this not a top priority???
    There are few big holes in the ecommerce function for Webflow but this is a big one. If I knew this prior to starting on the project I don't think we would have gone with Webflow.
    I'm trying to bring over clients from Shopify to Webflow but I don't have a leg to stand on with out offline payment option, getting around no account page is bad enough. I can seem to find an explanation on why this in not available either. Does anyone know why?

    Yeah, what the f***...

    I‘m setting up a shop for a small business and there's no way to pay with bank account? Credit card only? Had a great expeience with Webflow so far but this is a serious f*** up right there...!!

    Are there any 3rd party methods to use within Webflow, at least? Can someone help?

    This is so frustrating. I love the platform and its (design-)possibilities. But because this feature ist still missing, I have to choose other platforms to setup ecommerce stores. I have a feeling that the implementation would be relatively simple after all. Dear webflow team, can you explain us why this feature does not exist yet?

    I opted for webflow to create my first ecommerce as it looks really cool and different. It is'nt easy for me as I am a total beginner. Its pretty annoying when I approach the final stage and realize I could hardly customize the payment methods. Bank Transfer has been so common and preferable for years now. How webflow didn't realize that. There may be not enough votes for webflow to consider this wish list. There is a reason why this wish list is still going on after the first post two years ago. I don't want customers to abandon their cart just because of the limited payment options.

    Most SME's and big companies in the Philippines are using COD payment (like Shopee, Lazada, Shopify, etc.).

    We had to stop with the E-commerce site and move to another platform because "simply" the payment platforms are not supported in our country, neither in too many others

    Shopify, Weblium, Duda..etc they all have this feature! I don't think it's hard to implement. It's a must-have if you're going to offer an Ecommerce solution. So please, do implement this.... please

    Also, it would be nice to get/show responses from Webflow here rather than just have an open forum (a place where customers can complain/ask for things). Sometimes people just need to be reassured we're being listened to. I was somewhat amazed at how irate some responses are here. I'm not one to write in these type of things but my appreciation for what you're doing is strong and I want to see you succeed. It will help so many businesses that otherwise are limited. Therefore building stronger competition, and a better experience for everyone, consumers!

    I don't mean to berate like other responses here. I've been in product and design roles most of my career (data prior) and understand the roadmap cues that come when managing a platform. Rather if you're looking to differentiate yourselves over the other e-commerce options, it feels as though this would be a relatively straightforward fix. I'm in love with your designing functionality. You do this far better than any other e-commerce platform, yet even if we can get the design and interactions spot on, it won't functionally work and therefore have to settle with an alternative. There are a few industries and segments this could gain a lot of steam. Perhaps even marketing specifically to those industries could be an easy way to get it off the ground. You make it easy for your clients to build THEIR presence online, start to finish this would be a wonderful addition and make the choice for Webflow that much easier. Thank you!

    Webflow, this might not be an issue for all of your users, but for a lot of small businesses looking for a customizable ecommerce solution it's a deal breaker.

    This is a must feature, why is it so hard to implement? Maybe webflow does not want to implement it ? If so at least let us know so that we can move on.
