Setting Up Direct Bank Transfer Payment Method

Direct Bank Transfer, or Bank Account Clearing System (BACS), is a payment method that does not require online payment. Orders made using Direct Bank Transfer will be Pending until payment clears outside of ProfilePress.

You, as the website owner, should confirm that payments have cleared to your bank accounts before marking the order as complete in ProfilePress.
