Wire transfers

The Wire transfer payment method allows you to provide payment instructions to your customers, such as the bank details and communication. They are displayed:

  • at the end of the checkout process, once the customer has selected Wire transfer as a payment method and clicked the Pay now button:

    Payment instructions at checkout
  • on the customer portal:

    Payment instructions on the customer portal


  • While this method is very accessible and requires minimal setup, it is very inefficient process-wise. We recommend setting up a payment provider instead.

  • Online orders remain in the Quotation sent (i.e., unpaid order) stage until you receive the payment and Confirm the order.


Wire transfer can be used as a template for other payment methods that are processed manually, such as checks, by renaming or duplicating it.


To configure Wire Transfer, go to Accounting / Website ‣ Configuration ‣ Payment Providers, and open the Wire Transfer card. Then, in the Configuration tab:

  • Select the Communication to be used;

    • Based on Document Reference: sales order or invoice number

    • Based on Customer ID: customer identifier

  • Tick the Enable QR codes check box to activate QR code payments.

Define the payment instructions in the Messages tab:

Define payment instructions

If you have already defined a bank account, the account number will be automatically added to the default message generated by Odoo. You can also add it afterwards and update the message by clicking Reload pending message.
