It wont be as easy to hide "Place Order" button directly because it comes separate with each payment method.

You can override individual payment method module's form.html (e.g. for Braintree : vendor/magento/module-braintree/view/frontend/web/template/payment/form.html) file but in this case also there are N no of payments you will have to do for all.

Hence, I would recommend to go through following steps:

  1. Create a button same as "Place Order"
  2. Hide default "Place Order" by CSS
  3. Trigger default "Place Order" on the click of your custom "Place Order" button
  4. You can apply any condition on your custom "Place Order" button

Have a look at this link in order to achieve above :

  • @NarendraVyas I am trying to achieve similar behavior but in our case we need to disable the button for customers based on customer group data and display a message instead of the button. How do we access session/customer data inside .js file as mentioned at zanetabaran.com post?

  • you can use magento customer-data.js, you can include that in js file. Apr 6, 2019 at 12:21

You can create a js file and include it on checkout page with following code.

define(['jquery'], function($) {
    $(document).on('change', 'input[name="payment[method]"]', function() {
            $('button.checkout').attr('disabled', 'disabled');

This should work.


Override the below template in your theme


After that update code from line no 139 to 149 with given below code

<button class="action primary checkout"
            click: placeOrderClick,
            attr: {title: $t('Place Order')},
            css: {disabled: !isPlaceOrderActionAllowed()},
            enable: isActive()
    <span data-bind="i18n: 'Place Order'"></span>
