Set Cash On Delivery ( COD ) By default payment option

Select the manage option on the cash-on-delivery option.

Steps to manage Cash on delivery option

  • Enable COD: tickmark on eneble checkbox
  • Title: Write the title shown to the customer on checkout
  • description: Write info shown to customers when they choose the COD option.
  • Instruction: write how that works
  • Enable shipping methods
  • Enable “Accept for virtual orders”

Method 2: Payment gateways title and description Programmatically code

	if( 'cod' === $gateway_id ) {
		$title = 'Cxc Cash on delivery';

	return $title;
