Connecting to WordPress.com with WooCommerce Payments

WooCommerce Payments requires a connection to a WordPress.com account to accept payments from buyers and to show sellers details about transactions, deposits and disputes.

Setting Up the Connection ↑ Back to top

After activating WooCommerce Payments for the first time, you’ll be prompted to complete the connection. If you don’t have a WordPress.com account, you’ll be prompted to create one as part of this process.

Note: If you have the Jetpack plugin activated and connected to a WordPress.com account, your Jetpack plugin connection will be used instead.
