Magento 1.7 brought two new core payment methods: Cash On Delivery and Bank Transfer. Until now, European stores that needed those methods had to use 3rd party extensions like Phoenix_BankPayment and Phoenix_CashOnDelivery.

Both are still maintained after the release of Magento 1.7, so obviously they did not become redundant.

I am wondering if I should give the new core methods a chance and would like to read some practical experiences: are they useful and sufficient?

  • I do not know about the BankPayment module, but the cash on delivery extension doesn't introduce a new payment method. It just allows you to set an additional fee to orders.

I did not analyse the new core modules, but the Phoenix Media team says that the feature set is different, so that a replacement is not an option. Hence I would stick to the Phoenix Media extensions - they work flawlessly.
