Setting up a payment system for your digital products can be daunting, but with our step-by-step guide on setting up payments in WooCommerce, you’ll have a secure and reliable payment system with ease. Read on to learn how to integrate WooCommerce into your online store.

Add Payment Gateways to WooCommerce.

In order for customers to purchase your products, you’ll need to add payment gateways such as PayPal, Stripe, and To add these to your store, go to the WooCommerce settings page and select the “Payment Gateways” tab. Here you can select which gateway you would like to use. Once selected and activated, customers will be able to make secure purchases using their preferred payment method on checkout.

Customise Your Checkout Page.

Once you’ve added payment gateways to your store, you can further customise the checkout page by adding additional fields such as billing and shipping information. To do this, go to the WooCommerce settings page and select the “Checkout” tab. Here you can add new field labels, change input types, adjust field order on the page, and more. By customising these fields, you give customers control over how they fill out their billing and shipping information which will increase customer satisfaction of your store.

Activate SSL for Secure Payments.

To ensure your customers feel comfortable entering their card details online, you should also activate Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for your website. SSL is a protocol that encrypts data sent to and from web browsers and servers, ensuring that any personal information such as name, address, and credit card information remains secure. Contact your hosting provider to find out more information on setting up SSL certificates on your website.

Set Up Roqqett and a Payment Gateway.

Using gateways such as PayPal Express Checkout or Apple Pay for accepted digital wallets is an easy way to set up secure payment methods. All you need to do is add the gateway from your WooCommerce settings, enter your credentials and credentials from the service provider, and save. There are a couple of issues regarding adding these gateways, not least is the cost. As most of these payment processing services are located offsite, customers will be redirected to third-party payment merchants when making purchases. That interrupts your hard fought and won customer journey at the most important time. Roqqett transacts on the page and uses the customers mobile banking app to secure your order and funds instantly.
