  • Compatibility

    The plugin is compatible and has been tested for WordPress 6.5.3 and WooCommerce 8.9.1 We continue to check compatibility with each new version.

  • Payment Type And Information

    Our plugin uses an off-site payment method, which means that customers will be redirected to a secure payment page to complete their transactions. Although this type of payment method does not require an SSL certificate on your site, we still recommend that you have one in place to protect your customers' personal and financial information.

  • Hardened Security

    The plugin not only uses the SHA (Secure Hash Algorithm) encryption but also uses RIPEMD encryption. This gives you and your customers peace of mind with two security measures in place.

  • Supported Payment Methods

    Our plugin allows merchants to easily accept payments from all major credit card companies, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, and JCB. This makes it simple for merchants to offer their customers a variety of payment options and ensure they can complete their purchases without any difficulty.

  • Full Documentation

    To make sure that you can set up our plugin quickly and easily, we provide full documentation that walks you through the process step by step. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced user, our detailed instructions will help you get our plugin up and running on your WooCommerce store in no time.

  • Setup Wizard

    Once activated, a setup wizard will guide you through the process of setting up your First Data Connect for WooCommerce plugin. The wizard is easy to use and provides clear instructions, making it simple to get up and running quickly. And if you ever need help, our support team is available to assist you.

  • Storing Strong API Credentials

    The API credentials can now be defined on your website, which means that they are no longer stored in the database. This added security measure ensures that even if a hacker were to gain access to the database through a SQL exploit, they would not be able to see the API credentials.

  • Direct HTTP server-to-server request

    With the use of webhooks, you'll never miss a transaction again. This feature sends order data back to the website, ensuring that all transactions are processed smoothly and without any failures or pending status. This helps to improve the overall efficiency and reliability of your online business.

  • WooCommerce Checkout Blocks

    Our plugin fully supports the new WooCommerce checkout blocks, allowing you to take advantage of the improved cart and checkout page design. This can help to increase conversion rates and boost the overall success of your online store.

  • MOTO payments support

    Merchants can take payments over the phone directly through their website, without the need to log in to their First Data Virtual Terminal. This streamlined process allows merchants to complete transactions faster and more efficiently, helping to improve the overall success of their business.

    For more information, see our guide.

  • Card Tokenization

    Our plugin allows customers to save their payment details for future checkouts. This feature enables customers to manage their saved payment methods on the WooCommerce My Account page. When this feature is enabled, credit card information is not stored on your site's server, but is instead tokenized and stored on First Data servers. This added security measure helps to protect your customers' information and ensure that their transactions are processed smoothly and securely.

  • Apple Pay and Google Pay support

    Enhance your checkout experience by offering Apple Pay and Google Pay as payment options. Customers using compatible browsers and devices will see the payment buttons at checkout, making it easy and convenient to pay with their preferred method.

  • AG Status Check

    Save time and hassle with AG Status Check - our exclusive feature that allows you to automatically or manually check the status of an order directly from your WooCommerce store. No more logging in to the payment provider - just check the status with a single click, right from your store's dashboard.

  • Support For Automatic Refunds

    Our First Data Connect for WooCommerce plugin simplifies the refund process, allowing shop employees to process refunds directly within WooCommerce without logging in to First Data.

  • AG Order Check

    Our "AG Order Check" feature uses a traffic light system to show the results of CVC, 3D secure, and postcode checks for an order. This helps merchants quickly identify potentially fraudulent orders and take appropriate action. The traffic light system makes it easy to see at a glance whether an order passes or fails each of the checks, providing valuable information to help merchants protect their business.

  • WooCommerce Subscriptions

    Get the most out of your subscription-based online store with First Data's support for WooCommerce Subscriptions. Accept recurring payments with ease and manage your subscriptions efficiently, all within your WooCommerce platform.

  • Pay By Link (PBL) payments

    Want to offer your customers a quick and easy way to pay for your products or services? With First Data's Pay By Link (PBL) solution, you can do just that. Send a link to your customer's email or phone, and let them pay with just a few clicks. Whether you're selling products or services, PBL provides a secure and convenient payment option for your customers, all while simplifying your payment processes.

We recommend using a server with PHP version 8.1 or higher to ensure optimal performance and security. Before setting up a website on WordPress, we also suggest checking the platform’s requirements.

Regarding server settings, there is no specific minimum requirement as long as your server can handle the actions performed by our plugins or any other active plugins on your site. Typically, a standard hosting package should suffice. However, since our plugins require WooCommerce, we recommend checking their article on server recommendations as well. At our end, we regularly check our plugins with the latest versions of WordPress, WooCommerce & PHP versions to ensure compatibility and optimal performance.
