The application links with your Shopify checkout page seamlessly, and you can begin renaming payment methods on your store.

Step 3 – Click on ‘ Create Payment Customization’ on the right side of your screen.

Step 4 – Choose the ‘Rename’ option from the Shopify script method menu.

Note – The renamed payment method will only be visible to the customers that belong to the condition applied.

Step 5 – Name the customization title for your reference. Enter the payment method that you want to rename. Make sure it is exactly the same as it is displayed on the checkout page. You can also add more payment methods that will be renamed along with the same condition.

The app provides multiple options to select rule type:

Cart Details

  • Total Amount or Subtotal Amount – To display the renamed payment method, enter an amount and select whether it should be larger or less than it.

 For example, ‘Cash on Delivery (COD)’ payment method will be displayed as ‘Bank Deposit’ if the order total is equal to or greater than $2000.

  • Total Weight – Create a rule based on the cart’s total weight and display the renamed method if the total weight is greater or less than the set number.

Cart Has Any Items

  • SKU or Collection – Select various collections from your store and specify whether or not they should appear in the order.

For example, for any specific collection, you can change the Payment Method such as ‘Bank Deposit’ to ‘Bank Deposit (Extra 5% Discount)’.


  • Country Code – Enter the name of the country from the dropdown menu, and the renamed payment method will be displayed if the order contains or does not contain that country based on the rule you’ve defined.

For example, display ‘Express shipping’ payment method as ‘International Shipping’ if the order address does not contain the USA country. (This example is for a store that supplies from the USA).

  • Province Code / State Code – Customers in different states will see different names for the same payment method.
  • Zip Code / Postal Code – To effortlessly categorize the order, select from multiple criteria such as Contains, Does not contain, Starts with, and Does not start with.
  • City / Area or Address Line – Select from a variety of detailed parameters to detect orders from certain addresses and display various payment names.


  • Customer tags – Input your store’s customer tags and select whether they should or should not be included in the purchase.
  • Total Spend – Select whether the total amount spent by the consumer on the store is larger or less than the amount specified in the rule to display the renamed delivery method.

For example, display ‘Cash on Delivery’ as ‘Bank Deposit’ if the total amount spent by the customer is less than $200.

  • Company – Make a rule out of it by noting the company names and whether or not they appear in the order.

Delivery / Shipping

  • Title – Display a different payment name if the customer selects a specific delivery method.

For example, if the chosen delivery method is ‘Express Delivery’, payment method name will be displayed as ‘Pay with PayPal’.

Step 7 – Enter the new payment method name that you want to display on the checkout page.

Step 8 – Click on Create and your condition will be updated.
