New Payment Method added: Money Order
Open, MediumPublic


@Eileenmcnaughton I just created the new payment method we discussed, Money Order, in Civi. Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks

Event Timeline

Hey @LeanneS

Could you remind me, is this going to be another thing engage will process (and thus need to be handled on import)?

@DStrine Yep! This will be an option included in the files imported with the Engage import.

DStrine triaged this task as Medium priority.May 26 2021, 3:22 PM

I tried to hand enter a money order contribution and it looks like the 'check number' field disappears when 'money order' is selected as payment method. Is there a way to have that field attached to it?

On the Engage files the money order numbers still go under the 'check number' column for import, it is only the payment method that is different. I just did a test import for a single money order contribution as well and it came back with the error: INVALID_MESSAGE No payment instrument specified.

Per our talk in civi fortnightly, we'll hold off on this until we hear back from engage.

@DStrine @Eileenmcnaughton I've gotten approval on our end for this addition to the file so we can move forward with using the Transaction ID Civi field for Money Order Number data. In the file the field will be 'Money Order Number.' I will let Engage know they can start on the programming they need to do on their end for this addition.
