To enable a "payment method" only for admin can you please refer the below link

  1. Magento2: How to add a payment method to admin create order?

  2. https://blog.e-zest.com/making-payment-method-visible-only-for-admin-in-magento-2

It's worked for me, Try the below one




<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="https://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Gta_AdminPay" setup_version="1.0.1"></module>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="payment_method_is_active">
        <observer name="gta_payment_filters" instance="\Gta\AdminPay\Observer\PaymentMethodAvailable" />


namespace Gta\AdminPay\Observer;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager;

class PaymentMethodAvailable implements ObserverInterface
    public function __construct(\Psr\Log\LoggerInterface $logger
        $this->_logger = $logger;     
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $result          = $observer->getEvent()->getResult();
        $method_instance = $observer->getEvent()->getMethodInstance();
        $quote           = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();

        /* Enable All payment gateway  exclude Your payment Gateway*/
        if ($method_instance->getCode() == 'checkmo') {
            $result->setData('is_available', false);
            $result->setData('is_available', true);

  • you need to create a di.xml file prnt.sc/uroaz3 Oct 2, 2020 at 5:57
  • After creating the module and enable Check / Money Order, It's showing on frond-end also. My module : app/code/Gta/AdminPay/etc/di.xml => justpaste.it/9jtbn, app/code/Gta/AdminPay/etc/module.xml => justpaste.it/2pupr, app/code/Gta/AdminPay/registration.php => justpaste.it/24mph, app/code/Gta/AdminPay/Plugin/Payment/Method/Checkmo/Available.php => justpaste.it/96fs0 Anything else i missed out?

If you need a payment option that is only available internally (admin area), we created an extension for that https://github.com/customgento/module-admin-payment-m2.
