With WooCommerce you can build any kind of eCommerce website on WordPress. It makes it very easy to add products, prices, shipping, etc. You can add different kinds of payment gateways and in this post, I will explain how to accept the WooCommerce credit card payment method.
WooCommerce comes with PayPal payments, direct bank transfer but for the credit card method, you need to install another plugin and tweak some settings.
Let’s dive in and see how you can set a WooCommerce credit card payment gateway on your WordPress website.
Install The Plugin
First of all, you need to install the plugin to enable credit card payment. Go to plugins and search for WooCommerce Paypal Checkout. Install and activate the plugin.
After it is activated, go to the installed plugins section, find the plugin and click settings. Now it is time to tweak some settings.
Link To Paypal
First, we need to link WooCommerce to PayPal. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Payments and click the Setup PayPal Account button.
Just follow the instructions and set up will be completed. It is very easy. Just follow the instructions.
Set WooCommerce Credit Card Payment
After you link the PayPal account, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Payments and click Manage on the PayPal Checkout section.
On that page scroll down and delete Credit Card on the Hide Funding Method. Then go up and in the Landing Page change it to Billing (non-PayPal account).
And last, choose Do Not Send Line Items To PayPal on the Subtotal Mismatch Behavior section. After you do all three things, don’t forget to save the changes.
Now you need to change one setting on your PayPal account and we are done. Go to your PayPal account, click the gear icon on the upper right corner and go to Account Settings.
Scroll down and click Website Payments. Update Website Preferences and make sure that PayPal account optional is On.
Now if you go and check your website payment page you will see that now there are options for credit card payments. Now your WooCommerce credit card payments are enabled.
As you can see, it was very easy to set it up. Now everyone can pay with credit cards. This is a great feature to have because many people prefer credit cards over PayPal.
And this means that you won’t lose a client over the payment method. Just follow the steps, activate WooCommerce credit card payment, and make money.
