WooCommerce – Which payment types do you accept?

When you first install WooCommerce, you will be able to enable multiple online and offline payment methods.

You will be able to access the payment settings through WooCommerce > Settings > Payments.

All your installed payment gateways will be displayed in this section. You can enable or disable payment gateways using the i/o button next to each payment method. Also, you can sort the order of display by dragging and dropping according to your preference (Installing payment gateways is described in detail below).

Do not forget to click the Save changes button every time you update these settings.

Configuring Payment Gateways

You will find four default options to install payment gateways in the Payments section. These are:

  • Direct bank transfer
  • Check payments
  • Cash on delivery
  • PayPal
Direct bank transfer #

This section allows you to set up a Direct Bank Transfer facility in your store.

At the top, there is a checkbox to enable Direct Bank Transfer. You can enable/disable this option by ticking the checkbox.

Check Payments #

Another payment gateway that you can set up in the early days of building your store is Check Payments.

  1. You can Enable/Disable Check Payments by ticking the checkbox
  2. Then edit the Title, Description and Instructions field (similar to what you’ve done in ‘Direct bank transfer’ setup).
  3. Finally, click the Save changes button.
Cash on Delivery #

The setup for Cash on Delivery is rather similar to Direct bank transfer and Check Payments except for two additional fields.

  1. Enable/Disable checkbox will decide whether you are activating this payment gateway for your customers.
  2. Title, Description, and Instructions can be edited in the respective fields.
  3. Enable this payment mode only for specific shipping methods.
  4. Accept COD if order is virtual.
PayPal #

PayPal Standard is a preferred payment gateway in WooCommerce, and it is accepted globally.

The set-up for PayPal includes a few simple, straightforward settings along with a set of tricky, advanced settings.

The settings page of PayPal has the following options.

  1. You can activate PayPal as a payment gateway using the Enable/Disable option.
  2. Title and Description (content that will be visible in the front-end of your store) can be edited using their respective fields.
  3. You need to enter the PayPal email address to accept payments.
  4. There are several Advanced options that you need to set up (will describe in detail below)
  5. API credentials to process refunds.
