Can I change which selectable credit card types will display during checkout?
However, there are some gateways on which the credit card fields are hosted externally on the gateway side (for example Shift4 Payments, and some versions of PayPal). In these cases, adding or removing credit card types from the list will have no effect on the payment module.
When using most payment gateways, your Shift4Shop store will have the 4 major credit cards listed for use during checkout. These are Visa, American Express, Mastercard and Discover.
However, you may want to add or otherwise delete a specific card for business reasons. For example, your credit card gateway provider may charge a higher rate on a specific card provider and you'd like to remove this card type as a displayed option altogether. You can easily specify which cards you display during checkout by going to the "Credit Card Types" section of your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager and setting your card preferences there.
In other words, depending on your credit card processor, it may be possible to select "Visa" from the drop down menu, while using a Discover Card and still have the order go through.
If there is a specific card type you're trying to reject altogether, please be sure to check with your credit card gateway/merchant provider to see if they may have a way to effectively block the card type completely.

Once there, you'll see the cards that your site is currently set to "accept" in the card selection drop down menu.
