WooCommerce, a popular WordPress ecommerce plugin, has introduced its payment services to four new countries as part of a global expansion strategy to engage more retailers and small and medium-sized businesses.
Businesses in Spain, Italy, France, and Germany can now use WooCommerce’s solution. Which allows users to manage payments straight from their store’s dashboard.
Multi-currency support has also been added, allowing customers to shop in any of WooCommerce’s 135 supported currencies. Previously, adding additional currencies required merchants to use a plugin.
WooCommerce now includes support for Giropay and Sofort, two local payment methods popular in the European Union. As a result, retailers will be able to take payments utilizing bank debits/direct debits. That are popular in specific countries on top of existing systems.
