PaymentMappings XML file

Configure the mapping from payment method to payment method configuration and payment actions. You can change what payment rule a payment method uses by changing the PaymentMappings XML file. The behavior of payment processing also changes; when a different payment rule is specified, the actions the system takes also change.

Note: You cannot change the payment rules associated with refund methods because the rules are not configurable for refund methods.
