WHMCS Module - No payment needed, still asks for payment details.

Hello,

I've got WHMCS setup and I created a test plan for my new service, it was a free plan but it required me to add my card details.

I have seen some WHMCS installations where the payment method is No Payment Needed.

Does anyone know where I can get this module or if you made the module yourself could I buy it?

    Note having a $0 invoice can be problematic in the EU where it is against the law to have such.

    Wait, it's illegal to charge someone nothing in the EU? O.o

    Maybe because you need to pay tax on it?

    Excuse me for my incompetence in this area, but how can you pay tax on nothing?

    That's why it's illegal.

    Oh... I see.

    So how would someone offer a free service to the EU?

    @concerto49 @zen @0xdragon

    When someone orders a free product is doesn't create an invoice, it marks the order as no invoice due so were are all fine here.

    I'm looking for a payment gateway which is No Payment Needed. Meaning anyone can order without having to enter bank details.

    I would recommend creating your own payment gateway add-on, it would be like 10 lines of logic.

    I'm looking into it.

    Add it to modules/gateways then activate it in WHMCS

    Its not exactly that it is illegal, zero invoices are raised millions of times a day no doubt all over the EU, when it comes to limited/registered companies invoices have to follow fairly strict accounting rules is all.

    You can have a 0 invoice as long as it details the reason.

    You cant have for example:

    buyer

    seller

    invoice number: 1234

    Item: a service

    Price: Free

    but you can have:

    buyer

    seller

    invoice number: 1234

    Item: a service

    Price: £10.00

    Credit line: £10.00 discount for xyz reason

    Total Price: £0.00

    Notes: explanation here.

    I assume it's because eventhough you're not paying anything you're still entering a binding contract because of the invoice.

    You can spam me with any yearly shared hosting deal.

    You can make invoices of 0 euros or whatever you want aslong you are not a registered company.

    In the netherlands you have to register at KvK (Kamer van Koophandel) as company and pay taxes to them if you want to have a legit business

    you need to add around 20% VAT (tax) to the customer's order, otherwise its illegal.

    20% is almost double or tripled of Payment processor fees.

    that's probably the main reason providing hosting services in europe is more expensive than in the USA..

  • A more simple 'null gateway' would be the following

    I don't remember where i got it from but yeah just save that text to /modules/gateway/null.php and choose null gateway.
