Thread: PayPal. Limiting to in stock orders.

  1. #1

    Default PayPal. Limiting to in stock orders.

    FInal question for today, we sell about 80% of our goods as preorders, and as such we do not accept Paypal as we don't like taking payment up front until goods are ready to ship.

    Our items are separated on the site by instock, and preorder, so does anyone know if there is a way to set up payment options with Paypal, so that the Paypal option will only be available to customers if they order instock and ready to ship items? So for any orders that contain any preorder items, the Paypal option will not be available?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Can't think of a way around this which would do it automatically. You could accept cheques as a payment method and then use the language to change the wording to suit IE Pay Later (Only Available for PreOrder Products) but you are depending on the customer then selecting paypal or pay later.

    An option which may help is Authorize and Capture. This allows Paypal to check the customers account, check they have the funds available and then "lock" them to the purchase, though the money stays in the customers account. When the order is ready to be shipped you can the Capture the money for payment. Its only now that the money is actually transferred from their account.

    I think the problem they will have with doing that is that some of their products can take 2,3 and 4 months plus before coming into stock. PayPal recommends that you capture payments within three days of the original authorization and I think the maximum is 29 days.
