Why Is This Needed?

BigCommerce requests that a new payment method replaces an existing unused payment method. The documentation shows how to override the option to pay with a Check. If this is an option you need, contact the ChargerAfter merchant onboarding team for guidance.

  1. In your store portal, go to Store Setup > Payments > open the drop-down with offline methods > next to Check payment method, click the Set up button:

  1. Set up the Check payment method by filling in the following data:
    • Display Name: ChargeAfter
    • Available Countries: United States

  1. Save
