It’s important to select a brand that not only you can trust to take care of your business payments but inspires confidence and familiarity with your customers. As an online merchant & business owner, it’s equally as important to feel confident that transactions run smoothly and securely, and that help from us is just an email away if you run into problems.

We are committed to providing our customers with the ongoing development of our plugin, with regular updates in line with WooCommerce/WordPress or Lloyds Cardnet Connect releases to ensure your payment gateway never lets you down.

  • Compatibility

    The plugin is compatible and has been tested for WordPress 5.8.2 and WooCommerce 5.9.0 We continue to check compatibility with each new version.

  • Payment Type And Information

    This is an off-site method gateway plugin, customers navigate away from your site to complete the payment process. We would still recommend that you have an SSL in place.

  • 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

    Accept all major credit cards
    Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Maestro & JCB

  • Support For Automatic Refunds

    Shop employees can now process refunds for an order paid for with Lloyds Cardnet directly from within WooCommerce — no more logging into your Lloyds Cardnet account to process refunds!

  • Full Documentation

    Nobody wants to get lost so you get full documentation to make sure you can setup the plugin step by step.

  • Setup Wizard

    Once the plugin has been activated a setup wizard is shown to walk you through the whole setup process, helping you get set up in no time at all.

  • Storing Strong API Credentials

    You can now define the API credentials on your website, this means that the API credentials are no longer stored in the database, should a hacker gain access to the database via a SQL exploit the API credentials are not visible to them.

  • Direct HTTP server-to-server request

    Never miss a transaction again with this feature. Order data is sent back to the website so no more failed or pending transactions

  • Translation Ready

    This plugin is compatible with WPML and other translation tools.
    The plugin and setup wizard has also been translated to French, German, Dutch, and Italian. This means you can get set up and working in your language easier.

  • WooCommerce Checkout Blocks

    Our plugin fully supports WooCommerce checkout blocks. Take advantage of the new cart and checkout page design and improve conversion rates.

  • MOTO payments support

    Merchants now have the opportunity to receive orders and send deliveries in a flash by taking payments over the phone with MOTO payments via their website. No need to login to their First Data Virtual Terminal anymore.

Yes, unless you cancel it, your subscription will renew annually. If you cancel within your first year, your licence will still remain valid for 12 months from the purchase date, during which you can continue to enjoy updates as they are released.

WooCommerce & WordPress are continually evolving and being updated, which means we frequently need to make changes to the plugin to ensure continuing compatibility. In order to update the plugin as new versions are released, you need to have an active licence. Your licence effectively provides you with insurance against issues with the plugin.

The licence is an annual subscription which you may cancel at any time. While your licence is current, you may update the plugin as new versions are released. Once your licence expires, you will no longer be able to update to newer releases, but the plugin will continue to function.

We offer a 30-day guarantee, If you experience an issue that makes the plugin unusable and we are unable to resolve it, we’ll happily consider offering a full refund.

Yes, your licence should work on your staging environment without affecting any site limits. However, should you experience any problems, do get in touch and we’ll do out best to help.

If you’re on a monthly plan, yes, the plugin will no longer work. if you’re on an annual plan, the plugin will continue to work but you will no longer receive support and updates, which could affect compatibility with future WordPress & WooCommerce versions.

We have a blog post with some helpful information on PCI compliance, you can read it here. If you still have questions let us know.

No, there is no special lifetime formula available at the moment. You can only buy an annual license.

You’re buying a plugin product from us, but it comes backed by our service: we work to continually add new features, important security updates, and efficient customer support. We thus use annual subscriptions to ensure we can continue bringing these benefits to you.
