Offline Credit Card Processing allows store owners to process credit card orders offline by accepting the credit card information and splitting the card number into two parts; partial save to the database while the rest e-mailed to the store owner.
Here is a breakdown of this Plugin’s functionality on a standard Order:
- Customer generates an Order and provides card details at Checkout
- Partial non-critical card details are assigned to the Order; stored in the WordPress database
- An e-mail is sent to the store owner with the remaining card details
- The store owner receives an e-mail with partial card details and a restricted link to view the Order and stored card details
- The store owner clicks Payment Accepted deleting the stored card details
- The store owner deletes the e-mail with partial card details and restricted link as it has now expired
Please see the Plugin FAQ for additional information.

This allows us to process the card offline using a separate software that we already have, correct?
Yes, Offline Credit Card Processing (OCCP) collects the card details from the customer at Checkout and presents it to the store owner to process via their in-store merchant facility or virtual card processor.
That’s right, non-critical card details are partially stored in the WordPress database with the remainder sent via e-mail to the store owner.
From the Settings screen you can toggle different partial card storage formats to suit your store needs, for example:
- XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-4321, etc.
You cannot store or e-mail complete card details, card details are split between the WordPress database and the store owner e-mail notification.
Does it allow for e-mails to be sent out saying that the order’s been taken, and we’ll follow up?
If you are using WP e-Commerce you can customize the standard Purchase Receipt to include a prompt that you’ll follow up with the customer shortly. You can find this under Settings > Store > Admin > Purchase Receipt within the WordPress Administration.
For Jigoshop and WooCommerce you can customize the message displayed at the Order Received screen and confirmation e-mail via Settings > Offline Credit Card and/or Jigoshop/WooCommerce > Settings > Payments > Offline Credit Card screen.
We recommend store owners using OCCP to deploy a valid SSL certificate at Checkout as well as within the WordPress Administration. Further, since OCCP e-mails partial card details to the store owner (or a preferred e-mail address) we recommend creating a unique e-mail address and limiting access to it (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
