In a multi-restaurant scenario, does anyone know if it’s possible to define different payment types for each restaurant or even a different set up for the same payment type? If not, all payments would appear to be going to one account which would need to be aportioned later.
If you use the multi-vendor extension available in the marketplace you can specify a different payment provider/setup for each location.
Brilliant! You’ve thought of so much already. Thank you.
I’ve just looked at the information available for this extension. This is a move in the right direction but it isn’t exactly what I need. Possibly more than.
TI is already designed for multiple restaurants in most ways but doesn’t discriminate when it gets to payments. I can have a different location, menu, staff, opening times and so on for each restaurant I set up. However, all payments have to go to one payment transport. The extension you suggested might do what I need but the information available on the marketplace page promotes it’s commission based earning capability. Sounds good if you need that but at $149 annually just to be able to be able to accept payment to a different account; that’s a cost I’d prefer to avoid.
If you are using stripe then you could look at the stripe multi connect extension. Alternatively write your own payment gateway.
Given there are zero costs elsewhere I personally don’t feel $149 per year is in any way unreasonable.
ryanmitchell I wholly appreciate that the cost is relatively small, albeit recurring. It just seems I’m paying for as they say, a sledge hammer to crack a nut. There are multiple payment types and I can create more. Being able to assign these payment types to specific locations seems a perfectly reasonable and logical request without also installing an extension which offers things I’m not needing right now.
The annual cost is just to receive updates… you could just pay once and after 12 months not get updates. If you feel the cost is too much, roll your own payment gateway integration… as you said most of the work is done already so simply extend what is there.
However, do bear in mind the paid extensions are the only reason the free version can exist 🙂
ryanmitchell I do appreciate that, honest.
