Is it possible to implement a payment method per currency level? The site in question needs to accept both USD and Indian Rupee. When a client pays with USD, it needs to be connected to a US bank/payment method, when paying with Indian Rupee, it needs to be connected to an Indian bank/payment method.

The site scope will be: one domain; one language; two currencies.

Is the above model feasible or it's better to stick to a multi-store or better alternative? e.g.

  • site.com/en
  • site.com/in
  • I think better you manage two store views for each country and two payment methods against each as well – Sukeshini Jun 19 '14 at 18:28
  • @Sukeshini That might hinder the user experience a little. Thoughts? – monocat Jun 19 '14 at 23:06
  • You can only checkout in base currency, you need two separate website views and enable Website Pricing instead of Global. – user2935 Jul 20 '14 at 13:47

You can do using Event observer. Create config.xml under app/code/local/Bh>ZeroSubtotalpaymentmethod>etc. code of this file is

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

Create Observer.php under app/code/local/Bh/ZeroSubtotalpaymentmethod/Model/ code is

class Bh_ZeroSubtotalpaymentmethod_Model_Observer {

    public function filterpaymentmethod(Varien_Event_Observer $observer) {

        /* call get payment method */
        $method = $observer->getEvent()->getMethodInstance();

        {   $quote = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();
            $result = $observer->getEvent()->getResult();   
            $result->isAvailable = false;
            $quote = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();
            $result = $observer->getEvent()->getResult();   
            $result->isAvailable = false;

I would scope both language and currency at the store view level. So in your case you would have 2 store views, both with english language, each with different currency specs. You could make language be store level but I think you may find that you want to reserve store level for a different, more general grouping.

If you set your store in this format, you can achieve it easily





           - English

  - INDIA(1)


           - English

Everything except payment method should set same for two stores and then set different payment methods for each store.

Hope it helps

  • That was one way I was thinking of approaching it but how can I utilize the currency. For example, it would be great when a shopper switches the currency, the page redirects to "currency" store. – monocat Jun 20 '14 at 18:33
