How to disable all payment methods and allow only ACH?
Do we have the option to provide only ACH payments on checkout?
Is there any option to allow Stripe ACH payments on the portal?
In Chargebee, you can use Smart Routing rules as an option, to disable all the payment methods and allow only the ACH payment methods for US customers.
The USD has to be enabled on the site level.
Stripe should be configured as a payment gateway.
Direct Debit (ACH/eCheck) should be enabled by navigating to Configure Chargebee > Payment Gateway > Stripe.
On the Checkout page and customer portal setting on Stripe, Display Direct Debit as a payment method should be set to ‘All Customers’.
This option is applicable only for direct debit payments via Stripe ACH (Plaid only) for USD. Hence, Plaid Authentication should be enabled.
Once the above prerequisites are met, go to Configure Chargebee > Payment Gateway > Smart Routing and remove the payment gateway for USD for all the payment methods except Direct Debit (Stripe).
With the Smart Routing feature, you can configure rules for automatically selecting a gateway account based on the payment method that the customer chooses and the currency of the transaction, so that the gateway account can be assigned by Chargebee automatically.
Ensure you have enabled Stripe as a payment gateway if you have not configured it yet. Navigate to Settings > Configure Chargebee > Payment Gateway > Add Gateway. Refer to this link for more details.
Ensure USD is enabled under Settings > Configure Chargebee > Currency
