WordPress plugin WooCommerce activates its payments offering in Europe. Eight countries in just 10 days.

10 august 2021

US-based WordPress ecommerce plugin WooCommerce announced that has expanded its payment services across four new countries in Europe: Spain, Italy, France, and Germany. Earlier in August, WooCommerce Payments also expanded into additional English-speaking countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

Commenting on the expansion, WooCommerce CEO Paul Maiorana said: “By expanding our availability to even more markets and adding further functionality, we are continuing to establish WooCommerce Payments as the premier payments solution globally.

The firm has also added multi-currency support, which lets customers shop in any of the 135 currencies WooCommerce supports. Previously, merchants were required to use a plugin to add further currencies.

WooCommerce will also now support Giropay and Sofort, local payment methods which are primarily used in the European Union. As a result, merchants will be able to accept payments using bank debits/direct debits that are popular in specific countries, on top of existing systems.

Free to install, WooCommerce Payments plans to launch in yet more countries, as well as add further local payment options throughout 2021.

„We’re continuing to launch WooCommerce Payments in more countries this year,” the company says.


WooCommerce Payments is currently available in 10 countries – the U.S., U.K., Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, France, Germany, and Italy.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
