NOTE: This page is about payment methods, meaning how customers can pay you for products. If you’re looking for information about how money from sales is transferred to you (the merchant), please see our Deposits documents.

WooPayments can take payments from customers using credit and debit cards, as well as additional forms of payment. Some of these payment methods may only be available in certain countries or regions, while others are only available on certain types of devices.
