With online payment methods, you can accept credit and debit cards, PayPal, or cryptocurrency in your online store.

The available payment gateways are determined by your store location. You can choose one or more payment systems to accept online payments from your customers.

Tip: Offering several ways to pay may boost your sales and reduce the number of abandoned carts. We recommend not using more than two or three. If you have a brick-and-mortar store, you may want to include a few offline methods as well.

You can activate or change a payment provider on the Payment page of your store manager.

Before you begin

When setting up your online payment gateways, remember that:

  • Your online store does not handle payments directly.

  • Payment processors do charge transaction fees.

  • Zyro does not charge any commissions.

  • Payment provider availability depends on your location.

  • Make sure the provider supports your business.

1. From your store manager, go to Payment settings and scroll to Add new payment methods.
