Gateway slug: manual

The manual gateway is for use when payment is taken offline by cash, cheque, PO or what have you. The manual gateway simply approves all payments.

Payment flow

The process for Manual gateway goes like this:

  1. You call perch_shop_checkout() and the user gets sent to your success page.

Step 1: Initiating checkout

if (perch_member_logged_in()) {

  // your 'success' return URL
  $return_url = '';
  $cancel_url = '';

  perch_shop_checkout('manual', [
    'return_url' => $return_url,
    'cancel_url' => $cancel_url,

The order is always successful - the manual gateway approves all orders.

  if (perch_shop_order_successful()) {
      echo '<h1>Thank you for your order!</h1>';
      echo '<h1>Sorry!</h1>';
