Placing orders in Magento without paying?Is there any way to set the Magento backend up in a way that customers are
able to place orders without paying for them?So that orders are raised in the backend and we can then contact them
regarding their order?
There are two methods which you could use for this purpose
1) Cash on delivery
2) Check or Money order
You can change the title of these method to whichever you like. Customer will not have to do payment for this.
To enable it Goto System >> Configuration >> Payment Methods and enable either “Check/Money Order” or “Cash On Delivery”
