hi there, I'm thinking about using the e-commerce module but the payment options are kinda debar me. the favourite payment method of my client would be just paying by bill (it's national anyway, Switzerland) and I was wondering if that's possible or at least if it's possible to add this as a second payment method?
thanks for any help!

Hi Wilhelm,

I have never used the commerce module , but I know for sure that it is possible to build your own payment options. (you are lucky, paying by bill sounds like a very easy one... ;-) ....

yes I know. well I'm not really good at PHP and not really familiar with e-shops - yet - but well, everybody needs to start somewhere, right. I thought probably somebody would have already created a payment option like that and could give me some advices?

This might help i've done similar
##### ecommerce/code/Ivoicepayment #####


* @package ecommerce

* Payment object representing a invoice payment
class InvoicePayment extends Payment {
* Process the Cheque payment method
function processPayment($data, $form) {
$this->PaymentMethod = "InvoicePayment";

$this->Status = "Pending";

$this->Message = "<p class=\"warningMessage\">Payment is outstanding.</p>";

$result['Success'] = "Success";
$result['PaymentID'] = $this->write();
return $result;

function getPaymentFormFields() {
return new FieldSet(
// retrieve cheque content from the ChequeContent() method on this class
new LiteralField("Chequeblurb", '<div id="Cheque" class="typography">' . $this->ChequeContent() . '</div>'),
new HiddenField("Invoice", "Invoice", 0)
function getPaymentFormRequirements() {
return null;

* Returns the Cheque content from the CheckoutPage
function ChequeContent() {
return "Payment is outstanding.";

* Function used for in template to check if payment is cheque.
function IsInvoicePayment(){
return true;



// Then to add this new payment type add the following to you config file
//'DPSPayment' => 'Credit Card (DPS)',
//'ChequePayment' => 'Cheque',
'InvoicePayment' => 'Invoice Payment'

Hope thats some help
