Looking for the same thing.

Guessing you'll have to buy a plugin such as; http://www.woothemes.com/product-category/woocommerce-extensions/payment-gateways/

Or check out http://www.mollie.com/en/ (payment gateways)

It comes with one by default that you can sign up for called simple Commerce. I like using stripe. There are both free and paid plugins available different types of payment gateway modules, including Stripe.

Hi Zac,

How does the default one work? I saw at the PayPal info that you should be able to use VISA if you don't have a PayPal account. But couldn't find that feature anywhere..

Is it something obvious that I'm overlooking then?

Thanks in advance.

BTW, love your WP courses. Very well explained. Thanks!

I have the some question as Andreas Anastasiades asked. However, you mentioned Stripe and different Addons within the great Woocommerce course, but why its not working in the middle east :( ? and why all other plugins such as paypal pro also works on US/UK and Canda?

I am located at the United Arab Emirates / Dubai now.


@Andreas, thanks man for the suggestions but doesn't work in my country :(
