In order to grant access to locked payment methods to individual users please first make sure that the Unlock via User Meta settings is set to Yes on the plugin’s settings page:
With the unlocking strategy active you can now navigate to the profile of any user registered on your website and you’ll be able to find a separate checkbox for each locked payment method in the plugin’s settings.
If the checkbox is selected then said user is granted access to the respective payment method for all their unpaid orders and all future orders.
For example, if the payment methods Direct bank transfer and Check payments are locked and you wish to unlock the former it should look like this:
It’s possible to see at a quick glance whether a user is already unlocked for a particular payment method or not on the Users admin screen. This information is available in a new column called Unlocked for and this is how to interpret the symbols:
- A tick — user is granted access to said payment method via the current strategy
- A circle — the user is granted access to said payment method via another strategy
- A cross — the user does not have access to said payment method
