The Magento built-in payment methods don't support this ability.

But, if you have custom payment method and your custom js component extends Magento\Checkout\view\frontend\web\js\view\payment\default.js, you can use selectPaymentMethod method. In most cases, it will be enough to call it in the initObservable method:

define(['Magento_Checkout/js/view/payment/default'], function(Component) {
    initObservable: function () {

If your payment js component has lazy initialization, you should call selectPaymentMethod on some onReady event.

  • This solution will rewrite the selected payment method. End-users can't change the payment method anymore.

One more example with preset default payment method as Credit Card (braintree):


var config = {
    config: {
        mixins: {
            'Magento_Checkout/js/model/checkout-data-resolver': {
                'BalanceInternet_Checkout/js/model/checkout-data-resolver': true


], function(
) {
    'use strict';

    return function(checkoutDataResolver) {
        checkoutDataResolver.resolvePaymentMethod = function() {
            var availablePaymentMethods = paymentService.getAvailablePaymentMethods(),
                selectedPaymentMethod = checkoutData.getSelectedPaymentMethod(),
                paymentMethod = selectedPaymentMethod ? selectedPaymentMethod : 'braintree';

            if (availablePaymentMethods.length > 0) {
                availablePaymentMethods.some(function (payment) {
                    if (payment.method == paymentMethod) {

        return checkoutDataResolver;
