Zero Subtotal Checkout

Zero Subtotal Checkout allows customers the complete their order when the grand total (including shipping) is zero. For example if you have a 100% off coupon or offer gift cards, this is the only way customers can check out without making a payment.


Customers will still have to select "No Information Required" in the Payment Information section of the Checkout page.

Zero Subtotal Checkout Settings

In your Control Panel, hover over Set-up and select Payments. Here you will have all your currently active payment gateways as well as any inactive gateways you have added for future use.


If you do not see the Payment Method, click on "View More Payment Methods" in the Setup->Payments Screen at the bottom, select "Zero Subtotal Checkout" and click on "Add Payment Methods".

To the right of Zero Subtotal Checkout, click Set-up:

Configure And Enable

On your Zero Subtotal Checkout configuration page, set Enabled to Yes and customize your settings:


Select a name for your payment gateway that appears on the front end.

New Order Status

Select a default status for orders completed with this payment method.

Payment from Applicable Countries

Select All Allowed Countries to place no country restriction on cash payments. Select Specific Countries to restrict payment to individual countries. Hold Command (Mac) or CTRL (PC) to select multiple options.

Sort Order

Enter a numeric value to determine the order your payment option appears (0 = first, 1 = second, 2 = third, and so on.)


When you finish your configurations, click Save from the top right hand corner. You can now checkout from your store with a $0.00 subtotal.
