Payment methods can be managed on the Payment Methods page (Store Setup > Payment Methods).

The payment methods are shown as a list.

A store admin can edit existing methods, enable/disable methods, delete methods, and change the order in which methods are shown to customers at checkout.

Editing Existing Payment Methods

It is possible to edit payment methods in the list.

To edit an existing method:

  1. Locate a payment method that needs to be edited on the Payment Methods or Payments page depending on the software version you use.

  2. In X-Cart 5.4.x, click Configure for this payment method.


    In X-Cart 5.5.x, click Settings.

  3. Edit the payment configuration settings.

  4. Click Save changes.

The payment method settings will be updated.

Enabling / Disabling Payment Methods

You can enable/disable a payment method in the storefront by switching the INACTIVE/ACTIVE toggle to the right of its name.

  • X-Cart 5.4.x

  • X-Cart 5.5.x

Deleting Payment Methods

To remove a payment method from your store’s payment methods list, click on the Trash icon below the method name.


Sorting Payments On the Storefront

The Names, Descriptions & Sorting page tools facilitate a store admin to order payments on the storefront and edit titles and descriptions of the payment methods available in your store.

  • X-Cart 5.4.x - Store Setup > Payment Methods > Names, Descriptions & Sorting


  • X-Cart 5.5.x - Store Management > Payments > Names, Descriptions & Sorting

By default, all configured online methods come first, but you can change the payments order if required by drag-n-dropping them to the required position.


Also, you can add a payment description and change the name of a payment that displays to customers.


Click Save Changes to make the updates active.
