My team needs to enable a pay on account option for one of our clients, however this option does not seem to be available on Magento 2 as it is for Magento 1. Does anyone know of any workarounds?
I didn't checked but none of this options could work? https://marketplace.magento.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=payment%20on%20account
Can you share which module on Magento 1 you were using?
This could potentially work (https://marketplace.magento.com/ecomwise-creditlimit.html), however my client is not wanting to offer store credit persay. He has set up N/30 terms with many customers, who then send in a check 30 days after their order has been fulfilled, but when ordering online they need to be able to still submit an order without payment.
I haven't worked with Magento 1, but I found this documentation summarizing exactly what my client is wanting to accomplish: https://docs.magento.com/m2/b2b/user_guide/payment/payment-on-account.html
That's part of the B2B features.
B2B works only with Magento Commerce (aka Enterprise Edition).
