How To Configure Check/ Money Order Payment Method In Magento 2?

For those who don’t understand thoroughly what check and money order are, we will summarize their basic definition as follows:

What is Check payment?

Check is a document used to write against your own checking account. The stores receiving the check then will be able to take it to a bank to cash it, or the check can be deposited into their checking account. The amount of money the check was written out will stay in the account until the store receives the document cash/ deposits it. Nowadays, using check payment is more and more popular.

What is a Money Order payment?

The money order is a prepaid financial instrument that is used when personal checks and cash are not accepted. An individual can purchase a money order at their personal bank, post, etc. Since these financial instruments are prepaid, the funds are always guaranteed.
