Additional payment methods

The preview of additional payment methods is available in WooCommerce Payments version 2.8.0 and newer.

Introduction ↑ Back to top

Starting from WooCommerce Payments 2.8.0, we allow you to preview the new payment experience, which will be enabled by default later in the year.

During this time, you can safely test the new checkout and make improvements to your site before we roll out the experience in the coming months. As an incentive, when you enable it, you can already start collecting payments via giropay and Sofort.

The new payment experience allows your customers to select their preferred payment method and securely checkout on your site.

Only the payment methods that are relevant to your customer’s location and currency are displayed.

Available payment methods ↑ Back to top

The payment methods you add through the settings will only appear at checkout if they’re relevant to your customer’s locale.

For this reason, feel free to add all the methods you want to support – they will be displayed conditionally so that they won’t clutter the checkout.

We will continuously expand the list of payment methods in future; stay tuned!
