Easily Accept Major Credit and Debit Card Purchases on WooCommerce Stores with Poynt, a GoDaddy Brand

Having a seamless and intuitive online payments process is one of the most critical parts of running an online store. There are plenty of ways for WooCommerce stores to accept online payments, but ultimately, the best option is one where the experience benefits both the business owner and the customer. Key factors to consider when choosing a payments processor include a painless set-up without upfront fees and fast settlement, a smooth shopping experience for customers, safe and secure transactions, and seamless integration into WooCommerce.

To provide the most optimal payment experience for both WooCommerce shop owners and their customers, GoDaddy is officially launching a free WooCommerce payments extension that gives merchants the ability to easily and securely accept any major credit or debit card for transactions on sites built with WooCommerce and WordPress. The Poynt – a GoDaddy Brand for WooCommerce extension can be found in the WordPress marketplace and used by U.S.-based businesses.

Shop owners can start accepting payments through Poynt immediately with no set-up fees or contracts. They will only pay a simple low transaction fee of only 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction and, better yet, they will get paid the next business day. Because Poynt uses hosted iframes, store owners get the benefit of a third party payment server without the customer ever having to leave their store. Customer payment data never touches the store owner’s server – reducing their PCI compliance exposure.

Poynt also creates a seamless experience for shoppers to securely input their payment info - entering their payment information directly on the site using an integrated, mobile-friendly checkout form. WooCommerce shop owners will see fewer abandoned cart losses with detailed decline messages that help customers correct mistakes, and customers will checkout faster the next time with the ability to securely save their payment information.

Poynt is also compatible with other WooCommerce extensions such as Subscriptions and Pre-orders, and refunds and voids can be processed directly through WooCommerce – no need to log into merchant accounts. Poynt is a fully integrated online payments platform for WooCommerce shop owners.

Poynt is available for free here at wordpress.org and is also available as a pre-activated payments plugin within GoDaddy’s easy WordPress website setup for the Shared and Business Hosting platforms.

Poynt is another way that GoDaddy is making it easier for small and midsized business owners to get the most of their online stores, provide better experiences for their customers, and ultimately, grow their business.
