Setting up Payment Types by Buyer
There are two buyer payment options available for Local Orbit powered marketplaces, depending on the service plan you've chosen: credit card or purchase order. A market could accept all available payment options but assign specific permissions to different buyers. For instance, Institutional Buyer Jane might have the ability to pay by either credit card or purchase order, but Restaurant Chef Joe is only authorized to pay by credit card.
*Note: If you need to change your current payment configuration, please contact us and we'll take care of it for you. If you opted for just one payment type, there is nothing you need to do. All buyers will pay by the same method.
If you want to enable specific buyers to use a specific payment type, here are the steps to follow:
1. Click "Market Admin" then click "Organizations" select the organization you want to specify payment options for.
*When all options are enabled for you by Local Orbit, all of your buyers have the option to pay by credit card or purchase order. If you want to restrict a buyer to one type of payment option, follow the next step.
Note: Any changes you make to the market settings that differ from your current settings will only affect new buyers who register. If you want to change the payment method for existing buyers, you must go into their organizational settings and select the new payment method.
