6.7.2. Changing Payment ProcessorsΒΆ

Payment processors sometimes experience temporary outages. When these outages occur, you can use Waffle switches to disable the faulty payment processor or processors, then re-enable them after the outage is over.

The names of these switches use prefixes that are the value of the PAYMENT_PROCESSOR_SWITCH_PREFIX setting. By default, this value is payment_processor_active_. The following table lists valid switches and the payment processors they control.

Payment Processor Switch Name Default Value
PayPal payment_processor_active_paypal True
CyberSource payment_processor_active_cybersource True

In the unlikely event that all payment processors are disabled, the LMS will display an informative error message explaining why payment is not currently possible.
