I need to disable the CoD payment method for carts with downloadable products. I started working on a plugin, but got hung up on this - have no idea how to get product types from cart.

Any ideas?


Best idea to use event/observer concept.

Fire an observer on event: payment_method_is_active.


namespace [Vendorname]\[Modulename]]\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager;

class ObserverforDisabledCod implements ObserverInterface
    public function __construct() {}

     * @param \Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
      $result = $observer->getEvent()->getResult();
      $method_instance = $observer->getEvent()->getMethodInstance();
      $quote = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();

      if(null !== $quote){
          /* Disable All payment gateway  exclude Your payment Gateway*/
          if($method_instance->getCode() =='cashondelivery'){
                $items= $quote->getAllVisibleItems();
                foreach ($items as $eachitem) {
                        $result->setData('is_available', false);

Didn't work for me, needed to make the following changes:

  1. Replaced $result->isAvailable = false; with $result->setData('is_available', false);
  2. Replaced $items= as $eachitem with $items as $eachitem

(magento 2.1.7)
