Here you can add a preferred payment method for the customer and configure automatic payments.
This panel is active after you have configured an external payment system and assigned it to a customer's currency. Automatic payment configuration is available with payment systems that do not require credit card security code verification (they either store the security code or use tokens to process payments).
If the external payment system supports token-based payment processing, this panel becomes active once a customer adds a payment method via the self-care interface.
To add a payment method, click Add method and enter the payment method data (e.g., credit card and cardholder details).
To view the payment method details, click .
To delete the payment method, click .
