How to Use the Inspire Commerce Credit Card Addon with WooCommerce
In the next WooCommerce WordPress plugin add-on guide, we will show you how to install and implement the Inspire Commerce add-on, which allows you to turn your site into a full ecommerce website that enables multiple payment methods.
Step 1) On the Dashboard, head to ‘WooCommerce’ and click on ‘Add-ons’ from the dropdown.
Step 2) From the Add-ons section, click on ‘Free’ to bring up the list of free add-ons, and then click on ‘Inspire Commerce’ from the list provided.
Step 3) This will direct you to the WordPress.org plugin page for ‘Inspire Commerce’. Give the details a read-through before clicking ‘Download’, which will send a copy of the plugin to your Downloads folder in the form of a .zip file.
Step 4) Back on your website Dashboard, scroll down your sidebar and click ‘Plugins’, and then ‘Add New’.
Step 5) From the next page, hit ‘Upload’ and then ‘Choose File’, and find the .zip file for your new plugin and click on ‘Install Now’.
Step 6) Now that the plugin has installed, click on ‘Activate Plugin’ to complete the process.
Step 7) On the Dashboard, scroll down to ‘WooCommerce’ and click on ‘Settings’ and then ‘Checkout’ from the toolbar on the top of the page.
Step 8) Scroll down the ‘Checkout’ settings until you find ‘Payment Gateways’, and then click on the settings for ‘Credit Card Inspire Commerce’ at the bottom of the gateway display options.
Step 9) The first section of the settings for Inspire Commerce focuses on Enabling the payment method, and creating a title and description for it that users will be able to follow. You should leave these as they are, unless you are 100% that you can describe it better.
Step 10) The API username and password that you were given by the Inspire Commerce gateway can be entered in the boxes provided.
Step 11) Choose your sale method from the box provided. The default is ‘Authorize and Capture’ – which authorizes and takes payment right away. ‘Authorize Only’ authorizes payment for the purchase amount only.
Step 12) The next step is to choose the accepted cards that customers can use on your website from the box provided.
Step 13) If you want customers to add their CVV card number (3 digits on the back of the card) when making a purchase, tick the box provided.
Step 14) By ticking the box marked ‘Billing Information Storage’, regular customers can make payments in the future without having to add their details every time.
