WooCommerce Payments – Simple and fast payment via the WordPress plugin

Today’s consumer gives less and less time to be convinced by a seller. Where we are used to go extensively for the most beautiful clothing, furniture or other things, we now simply buy many of these items online. With the mobile phone in our pocket, a purchase is no more than two clicks away. The situation is even more current, now that consumers are making more purchases online, because of the long-lasting crisis. It is therefore important to make the payment process on your webshop as simple and fast as possible for the consumer. If you own a WooCommerce webshop, you can no longer do without the new WooCommerce Payments plugin. In this article we explain to you what the WooCommerce Payments plugin is and how it works, what its advantages are and how you integrate it with your WooCommerce webshop.

What is the WooCommerce Payments plugin and how does it work?

The WooCommerce Payments plugin is a fully integrated solution to simplify the payment process on your webshop. There are already several plugins for the payment processes on the webshop, such as Stipe and Mollie. Both are good plugins, but with the changing payment world, consumers are constantly looking for better. The WooCommerce Payments plugin, on the other hand, contains the latest payment technologies. The new plugin enables you as an entrepreneur to check outgoing costs, settle debts easily, track other deposits and payments and integrate with the costs of your (possible) physical store.

The WooCommerce Payments plugin is specially designed for WooCommerce webshops. WooCommerce webshop can be built by entrepreneurs via WordPress. Millions of WordPress websites and WooCommerce webshops have already been developed worldwide. With the new plugin, WooCommerce wants to make it easier for its users to also arrange payments within the webshop. Because the plugin is integrated in the dashboard of your WooCommerce webshop, you can oversee and manage all your transactions in one place. Bank accounts and other Excel files are therefore a thing of the past with the new plugin. Also, with the Payments plugin, consumers stay within the environment of your webshop while paying. Where in the past new tabs were loaded and consumers had to make payments on other websites, the consumer now remains within your WooCommerce webshop throughout the payment process.
