Does WooCommerce Payments require the Jetpack plugin?

The Jetpack plugin is not required to use WooCommerce Payments. WooCommerce Payments requires you to connect your site with WordPress.com, and this connection is powered by Jetpack services; however, the Jetpack plugin itself is not required for the connection.

The Jetpack plugin may still be separately installed alongside WooCommerce Payments to add additional security, performance, and marketing tools for your store. Once installed, it will use the same WordPress.com connection created for WooCommerce Payments – there is no need to connect again.
