We currently accept two payment methods: PayPal and Credit Card. Is there a way to show which payment method was used in the transaction on the CiviContribute receipt?

I'd like to show it in this table within my receipt:

{ts}Credit Card Information{/ts} {$credit_card_type}
{ts}Expires{/ts}: {$credit_card_exp_date|truncate:7:''|crmDate}


  • try using {$paidBy} variable in the receipt template. Commented Nov 13, 2020 at 12:24
  • @jitendra-fuzion thanks. that didn't work :(

  • {$contribution.payment_instrument} might work - I played around with using it while testing but didn't implement it. I found reference to it here, though I didn't need to include the api call at the top - civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/33149/… Commented Nov 13, 2020 at 18:31
  • Thanks @Christopher. I got it to show the Payment Type of "Credit Card" but I need to figure out how to show "Payment Processor Type" - since that'll show if it's PayPal or not. Any tips?
