How WooCommerce Helps Businesses Manage their Payments
WooCommerce is an incredibly popular e-commerce platform that allows businesses to manage inventory, track customer activity and purchases and relay payment information to customers and merchants, among many other different functions. WooCommerce is built in, and for, Wordpress sites, which make up almost a third of all the websites on the internet. As of 2021, there were 455 million WordPress sites online, and 62% of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the US used WordPress for their websites. WooCommerce is an incredibly popular option for ecommerce businesses, as it allows them flexibility, scalability and simplicity in how they run their day to day operations. At Acquired, we offer our clients a WooCommerce payment gateway plugin, to ensure that their WooCommerce site integrates perfectly with the Acquired platform.
Choosing the Right Payment Gateway for Your Business
A payment gateway, like Acquired, is a third-party platform that uses certain technologies and processes to accept credit and debit card payments - either for in-person transactions or online. Different kinds of integrated payment gateways have different policies and features, so choosing the right option for your business is vital to take you to the next level. Acquired's payment solutions help to make the entire checkout process and checkout experience as simple as possible, and offer the most seamless shopping experience for your customers. By offering a WooCommerce payment gateway plugin as part of our payments platform, we're able to help support e-commerce businesses using WooCommerce. Our integrated payment gateway helps you take payments from customers, use a range of different payment options, including major credit card payments and major debit card payments (such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express), as well as digital wallets including Google Pay and Apple Pay, making it easier for your customer base to input their payment details online.
Key features that make the Acquired gateway for payments so useful for WooCommerce merchants include:
- Subscription payments and future payments can be taken regularly and simply, rather than requiring a direct debit or standing order to be set up.
- Facilitating international payments for customers and merchants.
- Simplifying the process of managing both partial refunds and full refunds for your business.
- Built-in fraud protection and security features for your business.
- Our real-time analytics portal, which has a massive impact on customer data, data visualisation and how businesses can use their data to create a better customer experience.

WooCommerce Recurring Payments
For businesses that run using a subscription model or require recurring payments, ensuring those payments are taken seamlessly and on time, every time, is absolutely vital to regular operation and to customer satisfaction. Some online payment gateways and merchants don’t support recurring payments, meaning users have to regularly remember to make their purchases, or that merchants have to regularly request payments manually, The Acquired plugin for WooCommerce helps our clients to take subscriptions and recurring payments without any need for manual payments, either by the merchant or the customer!

Does WooCommerce have a payment processor?
WooCommerce is an ecommerce platform, which means that it can be used to create online shopfronts and track inventory, customer activity and much more, helping ecommerce businesses make the right decisions and easily manage their website. However, WooCommerce isn’t a payment gateway like Acquired, so the ecommerce platform doesn’t have a payment processor.
How long does WooCommerce take to payout?
WooCommerce Payments (WooCommerce's own payment gateway) portals take 1-2 business days to complete payments from account to account. However, this is different depending on the payment gateway you choose. With Acquired, you can see your payments and payment history in real-time, so you’re never left wondering when payment will come through.
