WooCommerce payment gateway

WooCommerce is an e-commerce plugin, or payment gateway, designed for WordPress customers. You can also accept payments on your WordPress website through Yoco Gateway!

Whether you do business in Alex or Athlone, Soweto or Sunninghill, more and more of your customers are shopping online.

Fact. Online shopping has changed the way SA shops – for the better.

We love online shopping so much, in fact, that we spent an eye-watering R30,2 billion in 2020.

And as the pandemic drags on, this number is set to rise as more and more consumers forgo schlepping to the mall in taxis or buses, or spend hours driving in circles looking for a parking.

Doing business online is a lot simpler than it used to be.

Technology means trading online is becoming an even playing field. Easy-to-use, affordable ecommerce solutions that empower entrepreneurs to earn their slice of the digital pie.

Online is way cheaper

Trading in a physical store means paying rent, staff salaries, utilities, insurance, and more. Trading online puts more cash in your pocket to spend on growing your business.

Reach more customers

Trading from a fixed location limits you to a specific target market. When you take your operation online, however, you’re able to cater to a whole new demographic.

The market's growing

The South African e-commerce market is set to hit R42 billion in 2021. Lower startup costs + an additional stream of revenue = more money in your pockets.

How? Via WooCommerce: WordPress’s e-commerce solution.

While WordPress is a CMS, (also known as a Content Management System), enabling you to build and publish a website, WooCommerce is a WordPress-owned API (Application Programming Interface), enabling it to turn a website into a multifunctional online store.

In other words, WooCommerce enables you to accept payments – a critical function that the rest of your online store relies on.

If you’ve got a WordPress site but you’re a Yoco fan for life, we got you.

Just because you have a website built on WordPress doesn’t mean you have to use WooCommerce. Yoco Gateway integrates with WordPress too, enabling you to accept cards on your website.
