BACS (Bank Transfer)


Bank Account Clearing System (BACS), commonly known as direct bank transfer or wire transfer, is a gateway that doesn’t require payment to be made online.

Orders using BACS are set On Hold until payment clears outside of WooCommerce. You, as the store owner, should confirm that payments have cleared bank accounts you list in BACS before processing orders in WooCommerce. It’s important to verify that you are paid before shipping an order and marking it as Processing or Complete.

For more information, see Managing Orders.
