The WooCommerce GoCardless extension is a plugin that allows businesses to integrate the GoCardless payment gateway into their online stores built on the WooCommerce e-commerce platform.
With this integration, businesses can offer their customers a direct debit payment option, which can be more convenient and reliable for recurring payments.
The GoCardless payment gateway is a UK-based direct debit service that provides transparent pricing, with a transaction fee of only 1% plus £0.20 per transaction, with a maximum fee of £4. For transactions with a value above £2,000, an additional fee of 0.1% applies. International transactions are subject to a fee of 2% plus €0.20.
The WooCommerce GoCardless extension does not require an application process or setup fee, making it easy for businesses to start collecting payments instantly.
The extension also supports GoCardless Pro and Plus, which provide additional features and customization options for businesses with more complex needs.
This means businesses can offer subscription or pre-order services with direct debit payments using the same platform.
To make a payment with GoCardless, customers are taken to a secure, hosted payment page where they can enter their bank account details.
The extension supports customers from a range of countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, and many SEPA countries in Europe.
Overall, the WooCommerce GoCardless extension provides businesses with a reliable, secure, and cost-effective payment option that can enhance the customer experience and streamline payment processing.
