Jaydeep Sinh Parmar,can do this by Magento Event/Observer

First,using payment_method_is_active disable on depends current store.

Code for this:

Module config.xml code:


Observer code is:


    public function filterpaymentmethod(Varien_Event_Observer $observer) {
    /* call get payment method */
    $method = $observer->getEvent()->getMethodInstance();

     /*   get  Quote  */
     $quote = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();

    /* Disable Your payment method for   adminStore */
    if (Mage::app()->getStore()->isAdmin()):
        if($method->getCode()=='YOUR_PAYMENT_METHOD_CODE' ){
        $result = $observer->getEvent()->getResult();   
         $result->isAvailable = false;

Please check the last Answer for this following stackOverflow Link:



Have a look at this extension. It allows you to set payment methods to only be used in the backend http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/admin-payments.html

The code is available on github (https://github.com/getsquare/Magento-Admin-Payments)


Go to System > Configuration and select the Default Config as the current configuration scope. Then select Payment methods tab and disable your payment method.


you can simply disable it in your module's system.xml where the configurations are located

That will done the job for you

  • But this way payment method disable for fronted also. Commented Feb 11, 2015 at 5:52
  • It shouldn't. Make sure you have selected the correct option as the current configuration drop down

  • I think you tell me to disable system->configuration->Sale->payment-method->My-Method Enable = No. Commented Feb 11, 2015 at 6:08
  • Yes, that's correct. But ensure what is the configuration scope you selected.

  • yes if i follow this process with right scope it will surely remove that payment method for back-end as well as front-end at checkout & I don't want to remove that payment method for customer checkout.By the way i find right answer and again thanks for your time. Commented Feb 11, 2015 at 6:52
