¡Hi! On my website we have online courses that work by subscription, so what we use is Woocommerce and its credit card plugin with Stripe. For us it is the most comfortable, I hope it works for you.

Okay, thanks for sharing your experience.

WooPaiment is quite easy to use with woocommerce

There are popular options include PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.Net, and WooCommerce Payments. Consider factors like transaction fees, supported countries, and ease of integration when making your choice.
To install WooCommerce, go to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to “Plugins” > “Add New,” search for “WooCommerce,” and click “Install” and then “Activate.”

first you have tell which payment gateway?
i am giving general resolution :-

Choose Your Payment Gateway: Start by selecting a payment gateway that suits your needs. Some popular options include PayPal, Stripe, and Square.

Install a Plugin: WordPress offers plugins that make it easy to integrate payment gateways. Two commonly used plugins are WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads. Install and activate the one that aligns with your eCommerce goals.

Plugin Configuration: Once you’ve installed the plugin, navigate to its settings within your WordPress dashboard. Here, you’ll need to enter specific information provided by your chosen payment gateway, such as API keys and account details.

Customization: Customize the payment gateway to match your website’s requirements. You can configure different payment methods, currencies, and checkout options to create a seamless payment experience for your customers.

Testing: Before making your website live, conduct thorough testing. Most payment gateways offer sandbox or test environments, allowing you to ensure that payment processing works correctly without affecting real transactions.

Security and Compliance: Always prioritize security and compliance with legal regulations, especially when handling customer data and payments.

Go Live: Once you’re confident that everything is set up correctly and tested thoroughly, you can switch your website to live mode. Your customers can then start making payments securely.
