About WordPress

WordPress is what we call a Content Management System (CMS), that is to say a system (tool, software or platform, call it what you want) allowing to create and design websites and is relatively simple to handle. Simple and flexible, it is a system used to create all kinds of websites, from a simple blog to a complex multilingual corporate site, including an online store. Regularly updated, with many themes and extensions available, WordPress is an evolving platform that follows web standards. In addition, WordPress is free software using the GPLv2 open-source license.

What is WordPress for?

WordPress is used to create websites, from start to finish, without having to know a programming language or code (although this is a great asset). WordPress IS the code. WordPress can be used to build any kind of website: - Personal or collaborative blog, magazine style - Online store - Company website - Community or association site with exchanges, forums and more

What is special about WordPress?

In web design, WordPress makes it possible to develop sites that fully meet the needs of clients, no matter how numerous and complex. Thanks to the numerous extensions, WordPress gives the possibility to easily add an online store module, create multilingual content (Hello World), secure the site, manage online registrations, share content to social media, compose newsletters, publish videos and much more. The best part is that all the content is accessible and manageable from the same place, at all times. Several visuals or themes are also available and serve as a base from which to work to create a unique design that stands out.In a simple way, WordPress allows you to create highly functional, designer websites that conform to the latest web standards without having to code everything from scratch. This saves me time, which I can then devote to the quality of the content and the visuals.

The benefits of WordPress

The advantages of WordPress from a web developer's perspective are obvious: WordPress allows you to meet all of your clients' needs from different angles. From a general point of view, the biggest advantage is that WordPress is a completely free CMS, because it is an open source site. Moreover, as thousands of people around the world work on it, it is constantly evolving and undergoes regular updates. WordPress is also known for its simplicity of use and also of creation. No need to pay a webmaster or even a programmer, you will be able to do everything yourself. When you start creating a site or blog, WordPress will explain the basic tools to you in a short tutorial.

The disadvantages of WordPress

In terms of design, many themes are offered to the user but they are all more or less similar. In addition, many of these themes are only available in English. This is a big problem if you want to create a site or a blog entirely in French. Another important point not to be neglected is the security of your creations. WordPress is managed by a lot of users (OpenSource) so you have to be really careful about any kind of hacking.

How do I get started with WordPress?

WordPress is easy to use, which is one of its biggest advantages. You don't need to be a computer genius to create your site. All you have to do is download the software, install it on your PC and access the dashboard. From there, all you have to do is choose the themes and extensions to create your website. With a built-in feature, WordPress performs automatic updates and notifies you when a new version is available.

ACF


ACF or Advanced Custom Fields, which can be translated into French by advanced custom fields, is indeed an extension widely used by developers on their clients' WordPress sites, because it allows them to do many things that greatly facilitate their life to make sites with advanced features. Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) can also be seen in terms of an extremely powerful WordPress plugin that offers the ability to attach almost any type of custom field to your various post types. The ACF extension thus offers more than 20 default field types.

What is ACF for?

The WordPress Advanced Custom Fields plugin offers the addition of custom fields. They become accessible in addition to, or as a replacement for, content spaces included with WordPress. These fields therefore allow the integration of all content (text, image, video, files and more). Even with the arrival of Gutenberg, WordPress which manages its content in blocks instead of its classic interface, ACF retains a very interesting and very essential place. A web developer can use ACF to create blocks with very precise options such as a title, an image and photo credits. The styles are set in advance. The user's only task therefore becomes the integration of content into what looks like a form. He doesn't have to worry about layout and styles.

What is special about ACF?

The user does not have to wonder about the appearance of the contents, they are adjusted in advance. Here, we touch on the main difference between a “visual builder” (content creation tool), WordPress Gutenberg blocks and the classic content window. In all of these cases, he has to style a lot of the content himself, and thus guess how the options work. With ACF, simplicity is key. Each block has specific, named fields that expect content. For example, to add a title, a list with the choice of title level will present itself. The user will therefore be able to concentrate on the end that interests him, the content of the site.

The advantages of ACF

The main benefit is that, on a live site, you and other site administrators will no longer have access to their configuration in the WordPress menu. In this way, we simply ensure that no one will do anything stupid by modifying the name of a field in production, which could break everything. The biggest advantage of this approach is that you will be able to internationalize the text strings of your fields. So, if you are making a multilingual site, this is explicitly the best approach to choose. There is no limit in using Advanced Custom Field to make the WordPress CMS completely personalized and tailored to your customers. These fields can in this case be used to create very specific personalized content and are designed to create complex personalized interfaces.

How to start using ACF?

You must first install and activate the Advanced Custom Fields plugin like any other extension, to do this, go to your WordPress administration interface then Extensions and finally Add. Search for Advanced Custom Fields (and not just ACF, otherwise it won't find it) and install it, then activate it.

Captcha


CAPTCHA is a family of Turing tests to automatically differentiate a human user from a computer. This challenge-response test is thus used in computing to verify that the user is not a robot; this verification generally uses the image or sound analysis capacity of the human being. However, the CAPTCHA acronym simply stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart The purpose of the tool, as its name suggests, is to detect the presence of robots by differentiating them from humans. To do this, CAPTCHA offers Internet users small questionnaires in different forms.

What is Captcha for?

A captcha is very often used to detect the presence of a robot or to confirm access to an interactive website. However, it is also very present to secure contact forms or online registration. This therefore ensures that the information comes from humans and not from a computer. To sum up, a captcha serves to differentiate a human from a computer program or robot.

What is special about Captcha?

CAPTCHA designates first of all a dialog box, but also and above all the whole of the image generation and network routing protocol associated with the resolution of the Turing test. CAPTCHAs are thus fully automated, they only require a few seconds of the user's time. As we have seen previously, a Captcha generally makes it possible to block the access of malicious machines to websites or registration forms.

The advantages of Captcha

As we have seen before, a Captcha basically blocks the access of malicious machines to websites or registration forms. However, Captchas have several benefits among which we can cite the fact that Captchas prevent hackers from using robots to send phishing emails. They also make it possible to restrict the creation of several fake accounts for malicious purposes. Thus, preservation against fraud is ensured, as for polls for example, this because they make it possible to ensure that each vote is indeed carried out by a human. From the provider's point of view, this obviously allows a significant reduction in the workload of website administrators. Automating requests therefore also makes it possible to reduce the resources of a server necessary for their processing. However, CAPTCHAs are able to take a holistic look at a user's behavior and even history of interactions with content on the Internet.

Disadvantages of Captcha

Nevertheless, Captchas do not only have advantages, there are also disadvantages. Even if the installation of a Captcha is of course necessary, it still requires some specific attention. Another disadvantage that should not be overlooked is the fact that the action of a Captcha can affect the user experience. An action is thus necessary in order to prove that you are indeed a natural person, however this action can slow down or even hinder access to the website or to a form. The "riddle" action can therefore be repeated many times, and your desire to continue will have been well shaken.

Other alternatives today

If they are more and more present, Captchas are not the only tool to secure a website or a form. Other methods are also used, for example:
  • Black Lists (or blacklists) which list unwanted addresses.
  • Honeypots that trap "spamming" machines with powerful bait systems.
  • Content filters through keyword analysis, which identify suspicious entries
  • Web server filters that through complex analysis identify suspicious interactions based on visible characteristics and even known patterns.
However, these different methods are much more complex to implement. This is what Google understood when it bought the ReCaptcha Company in 2009. It has thus developed several versions of its tool. Another cause of this is the fact that the product is free for quantities of less than 1 million calls per month, which gives you a margin. However, there is a counterpart, the tests of texts or images will allow Google to feed the AI (Artificial Intelligence). You are going to identify a word, this word will be used to digitize books and old press archives. Similarly, the recognition of a pedestrian crossing or a bus recognized by you on an image, will thus enrich the base for future autonomous vehicles.

DIvi


DIVI is a powerful website editor that offers a visual editor. It therefore makes it possible to create and modify Web pages without computer code or programming knowledge. Divi has thus made it possible to democratize the design of web pages, this by allowing website owners with little experience in the web to create websites, by offering advanced possibilities for advanced users. Divi comes as a theme and a plugin for the WordPress CMS.

What is DIVI used for?

Divi is a powerful website editor that offers a visual editor. Among other things, it allows you to create and modify web pages without computer code or even programming knowledge. It is based on the concept "WYSIWYG" = What You See Is What You Get, which means that you get what you see.

  • The famous Divi Builder. And what an argument this Divi Builder! The Divi Builder is an extension that …
  • "The Divi Design Initiative" The Divi Design Initiative was set up to offer

The disadvantages of DIVI

  • The main disadvantage of DIVI is that it is not free.
  • On the other hand, for around 210 €, users benefit from a lifetime license as well as unlimited use. This theme is then among the cheapest on the market, while being very efficient.
  • In addition, the ElegantThemes editor offers users a 30-day trial and a possible refund during this period.
  • Another disadvantage of the theme is that its translation into French can be quite risky.
  • Basically, DIVI is distributed in English and the translations of certain terms are not always done correctly. However, it is possible to find extensions that improve the translation in French (or in other languages).

How to start using DIVI?

Cons of Elementor

Although Elementor has several advantages, it does have some disadvantages that should not be overlooked: installing this plug-in makes the page load more cumbersome and thus causes possible display problems. Indeed, Elementor can have an impact on the speed of your website, making it slower, which can therefore affect your SEO.

How to start using it?

To build a page with Elementor, you must first create one with WordPress. An “Edit with Elementor” tab appears. Just click on it. From then on, you access the interface of the extension. Here you will see the main canvas where you can drag in the different elements. These are on the left side. So you can add internal sections, titles, images, videos, buttons, etc. Be careful, creating a page with Elementor requires understanding its structure: • The page is divided into sections; • The columnar section; • The column can include multiple content items; • Each element must be individually designed. The plugin also offers you to switch your site to responsive. In this way, the display is optimal both on mobile and on computer.

Google map api


Google Maps API is an application that provides an intuitive and very responsive interface, it is built using AJAX technologies. It is an open API allowing the customization of the map including even the possibility of adding specific data to the map within the application (customization of controls, event management, creation of markers with tooltip…). Even better, Google provides access to this service for free. In the articles or projects below we will examine some of the basic functionality provided by the Google Maps API.

What is Google Map API used for?

We use this API whenever we need to set up geolocation or to allow Internet users to determine their routes from one point to another. Google provides many tools on the Web, in particular in JavaScript, to create dynamic and user-friendly maps on any website. Its use is also free for developers (under certain conditions and within a certain limit)

What is special about Google Map API?

Google Maps is a powerful and rich tool. In general, when we talk about it, we mainly think of the display of the world map with a landmark. But it's actually much more than that! Geolocation, searches, routes, distances… So many things that this brilliant tool makes available to us!

The benefits of Google Map API

Google Maps has in just a few years become a service used by millions of users, and many developers. The application was indeed free and thus made it possible to integrate many functionalities related to geolocation to websites and applications. But for some time, the situation has changed, the service has indeed become paying for professionals.

How to start using Google Map API?

For those who wish to install a Google Maps map on their site, they must first obtain an API key. And for that, it is essential to have a Gmail account and go to the site dedicated to developers… Then, you just have to let yourself be guided to get your key. You can use Google's service on your site by integrating a small window of the Google Maps application into it. For those who wish to install a Google Maps map on their site, you must first obtain an API key. And for that, you must have a Gmail account and go to the site dedicated to developers… Then you just have to let yourself be guided to get your key.

Let's encrypt


Let's Encrypt is a Certification Authority (Certification Authority abbreviated CA) issuing free Domain Validated certificates (Domain Validated abbreviated DV) for a period of 90 days. Let's Encrypt owns an RSA root certificate stored on a hardware security module that is not used directly. However, this certificate is intended to be replaced later by an ECDSA certificate which will be used to sign two intermediate certificates signed by the certificate authority IdenTrust. One of them will be used to sign the issued certificates, the other as a backup certificate in case of a problem with the first one.

What is Let's Encrypt used for?

Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority, and they have more or less the same privileges and powers as every other existing (and larger) Certificate Authority on the market.

What is special about Let's Encrypt?

Let's Encrypt is a free non-profit service provided by the Internet Security Research Group to promote web security by providing free SSL certificates

The advantages of Let's Encrypt

Among the advantages, we can mention that it is:
  • Free: Anyone with a domain name can use Let's Encrypt to obtain a recognized certificate at no cost.
  • It's automatic: it's software that runs on a web server that can interact with Let's Encrypt to easily obtain a certificate, securely configure it for use, and automatically support renewal.
  • Secure: Let's Encrypt serves as a platform to advance TLS security best practices, both on the CA side and to help website managers properly secure their servers.
  • Transparent: All certificates issued or rejected will be publicly recorded and available for inspection by anyone.
  • Open: The issuance and even auto-renewal protocol will be published as an open standard that others can adopt.
  • Cooperative: Like the underlying Internet protocols themselves, Let's Encrypt is thus a joint effort for the benefit of the community, even beyond the control of any one organization.

Disadvantages of Let's Encrypt

Today, the main disadvantage of using a Let's Encrypt certificate is compatibility. This is thus a problem that any new certificate authority must face when approaching the market. Thus, for a certificate to be trusted, it must first be signed by a certificate belonging to a trusted certificate authority. To be trustworthy, a certification authority must therefore have the signing certificate integrated into the browser or the operating system. A certificate authority that enters the market today, even assuming that it is trusted by the root certificate program of each browser or operating system from day 0, which is by the way impossible, will be thus included in the current versions of the various browsers or operating systems. However, they cannot be included in older (and already released) versions.

How do I start using Let's Encrypt?

To start using Let's Encrypt, we first go to the DSM Security config. There, choose Certificates, then create a certificate. So choose to create a new certificate. Then enter a description, select the option to acquire a Let's Encrypt certificate, and set the use of this default certificate. For example, to enable HTTPS on your website, you must obtain a certificate (a particular file) from a certification authority (CA or CA for Certificate Authority in English). Let's Encrypt being a certificate authority. In order to obtain a certificate for your website's domain through Let's Encrypt, you must prove that you control that domain. With Let's Encrypt, you do this by using software using the ACME protocol, which generally runs at your host. To determine which method will work best for you, you will need to know if you have shell access (also known as SSH access) to your hosting. If you manage your site entirely through a control panel like cPanel, Plesk, or even WordPress, chances are you don't have shell access. You can ask your host to be sure in this case.

paypal


PayPal is an online payment service that allows you to pay for goods, receive payments, or even send and receive money. It is the undisputed world leader in online payment. This bank belongs to the leading eBay group. And generally allows you to send and receive payments online. PayPal is therefore an issuer of electronic money and not a bank, and therefore does not offer bank cards, remunerated accounts, or other financial services.

What is PayPal used for?

PayPal is an American company used to offer online payment service systems worldwide. The platform also serves as an alternative to payment by check or credit card. The site operates here as a payment method for e-commerce sites, auctions and other commercial uses for which they receive a fee in exchange for profit such as a one-click transaction and a registration of a password. The PayPal payment system, which is also called PayPal, is therefore considered to be a payment platform.

What is special about PayPal?

PayPal has the particularity of helping to protect your credit card information thanks to the best systems on the market for security and fraud prevention. When you use PayPal, your financial information is never communicated to the merchant, this is one of the peculiarities of PayPal.

The benefits of PayPal

The advantages of PayPal are numerous and diverse, we can mention:
  • Secured.
  • No charges.
  • You don't need to insert your credit card number on suspicious sites.
  • PayPal is used both on PayPal and several other merchant sites such as Cdiscount for example.
  • If you do not receive your item after paying by PayPal, you are automatically refunded.
  • By using PayPal, you receive your money directly and do not waste time with unnecessary trips to the bank.

The disadvantages of PayPal

PayPal not only has advantages, it also has several disadvantages including:
  • Using PayPal may seem incomprehensible at first.
  • If your password is stolen, anyone will be able to make purchases without your permission. It is therefore essential to choose a fairly complicated and non-intuitive password.
  • Another of the disadvantages not to be overlooked: these are the fees and commissions charged if you do not pay in euros or if you do not make purchases in the EEA, this unlike a credit card which is theoretically accepted everywhere

How do I start using PayPal?

Creating a PayPal account is done in a few minutes and very simple. All you have to do is enter your contact details and your credit card number. So, in this way, you will never have to indicate it again. Once the PayPal account is created, just browse eBay looking for the products that suit you. If any of them interest you, it will be enough to bid or make a purchase immediately. Finally, to pay, you will need to connect to PayPal and click on the payment validation button. Thus, your credit card will be debited without you even needing to bother to insert the codes.

web host


A web host is a service provider or company that provides internet servers for publishers or website owners. Servers are storage spaces for files of a website, which will be distributed on the Internet and seen by all Internet users. These spaces are composed of memory, hard disk and operating system. A host therefore allows you, among other things, to make your domain name accessible to all Internet users and in addition to having servers, the web host also ensures the security of all the files stored on the servers. He installs, updates and takes care of the maintenance of the servers. Below are some projects or articles related to web hosting.

What is a web host used for?

The web host offers you a storage space on a server continuously connected to the Internet or has various tools to configure it, FTP access to release data and an SSL certificate in order to secure it. The principle is therefore simple, the owners of the website deposit their data on the servers of the web host, and the latter therefore ensures that it is put online. In addition, he ensures that the content reaches Internet users 24 hours a day. It also provides other services like backing up websites and managing servers.

What is the particularity of the web host?

In addition to having servers, the web host also ensures the security of all files stored on the servers. He installs, updates and takes care of the maintenance of the servers. They also offer server management, IT support, or security solutions (anti-virus, anti-hacking, website backup, etc. They can also support customers in setting up and using servers. The type of hosting depends on how the information or even the files of your website and / or blog will be stored on the server but also, it can depend on the type of technology used, available resources, etc.

The different types of web hosting

A web host can provide four types of web hosting, namely:
  • shared hosting
Hosting is shared when several websites (from 1000 up to 3000) share a single and unique server.
  • VPS hosting
Virtual Private Server hosting offers a server shared by about twenty sites. Each site gets the same amount of space and memory on the server.
  • Dedicated hosting
This is a solution that offers a single server for a single website. It is intended for sites that need an ultra-efficient confidentiality system.
  • Cloud Hosting
It is a type of hosting that offers the possibility of using the resources of several servers on an identical network. It has increased computer security.

A few reasons why one needs hosting.

  • Hosting your website on a server will undoubtedly allow you to make it accessible to everyone via the Internet.
  • We are going to call on companies specializing in this field for two main reasons: reliability and cost.
  • Indeed, the (good) hosting companies first had to make substantial investments to obtain powerful and reliable servers.
  • Then, these hosts will offer to rent us part of their server, or even an entire server in some cases, so that we can place our installation there.
  • We can compare this process to MRI (medical imaging) for example: the machines used to make MRIs are extremely expensive. So when you have to have an MRI, you're not going to buy the machine yourself; you will rather go to a specialized clinic, and pay a certain price for the use of this machine.
  • The hosts, in addition to having very powerful servers and connections, will generally also offer third-party services such as customer service at your service, automatic installations of certain software, access to ready-made site themes, etc.

web server


The expression Web server (also known as http server), refers to any type of server that allows Web content to be distributed over the Internet or Intranet. As part of a computer network, the web server transmits documents (from a web page to a browser for example) to what is called a client. In other words, the expression web server can in general refer to two different things: either the software of a web server, or the machine on which the program is executed. When it comes to the second definition, we generally speak of a host or a host (such a host can house several Web server programs).

What is the web server used for?

A web server is basically used to save web content and also to ensure its accessibility to users in a safe way. When you load an Internet address into your web browser, what you see on a page is always sent to your computer from a web server. For a website to be accessible at all times, the web server on which it is hosted must be permanently connected to the Internet. On the other hand, if you want to launch a website on the Internet, you must therefore use a web server. Large companies and organizations very often have their own web servers for their intranet and internet content. Most website administrators very often use data centers hosted by Internet service providers. It doesn't matter if you have a dedicated server or rent one externally, you will always need software to manage a website's data and keep it available to stakeholders. To do this, you can choose from many web server management programs designed for different operating systems and application areas.

What is special about web server?

A web server has the distinction of being a program that accepts requests for information and sends the required documents.

The benefits of web server

Web servers have the advantage of being able to store many websites and fully control their infrastructure. The web server here benefits from high-level security. Moreover, as you and your collaborators are the only ones to have access to this server, you have very little if not even no chance of being hacked. Another advantage of web servers is that it is much more stable and efficient than a shared server because it belongs to a single owner.

The disadvantages of web server

The first and biggest disadvantage of a web server is its price. This type of server is generally expensive and not available to everyone. Before opting for this solution, it is necessary to determine if it will really solve your problem.

How to start using web server?

To get started with the Web server, you must first open the Port Forwarding section (or NAT/Virtual Server or its equivalent, the name varies according to the manufacturer). In the Application field, type Web Server and in the IP Address column, enter the IP address of the PC that hosts your Web server. If you want to visit a website, you must therefore enter the corresponding Internet address in a browser. In other words, the browser sends a request to the web server and the latter sends it a response in the form of an HTML page.

Webp


WebP is an image format whose interest is significantly reducing file size. Designed for the web (its name probably means “Web Picture” or “Web Photo”), it is less cumbersome than the more common formats JPEG and PNG. Here are some projects or articles related to WebP.

What is WebP used for?

WebP reduces file size by 39% compared to JPEG, PNG and GIF formats without losing any noticeable image quality. However, WordPress does not offer native support for WebP; it supports the most popular file formats, such as JPEG, PNG, GIF, and ICO, so it has yet to add WebP to that list.

What is unique about WebP?

WebP is an image format with the particularity of lossy compression of 24-bit images on the web. It was therefore conceived as a new free standard for compressed colour images and to replace other image forms.

The benefits of WebP

Among the many advantages, we can mention a few:
  • Space saving: As we have already said, the WebP compression format means that images take up much less space on our disk or server with the same quality as a JPG or PNG image.
  • Reduced compression time: it is not only necessary that they take up little space, but it is also crucial that they load quickly on the browser. In this sense, the format created by Google also far exceeds the decoding and loading times of other image formats.
  • Transparency support: In addition, it is a format that supports image transparency.
  • Animation support: And if that wasn’t enough, it also supports animation, making it a great rival to the GIF format.

WebP support in browsers

WebP has been around for nine years now. So why is it still so little used? Why are PNG and JPEG still the most common formats, despite the advantages of WebP? Like many technologies, WebP has difficulties finding its marks, and not all browsers consider this image format. Thus, WebP is supported in Google Chrome, Opera Mini, Opera, Chrome for Android and the Android browser. Other major browsers such as Safari, Mozilla and Edge have announced support for the format, but no availability is offered yet. Apple preferred HEIF over WebP. As for the others, they should soon integrate WebP to their compatibilities.

How do I start using WebP?

Before starting to use WebP, it is essential to remember that Google Chrome is the most widely used browser in the world. 64% of Internet users use it daily to search and browse the Web. Therefore, you should not give up on the WebP format just because other Internet users do not have access to it. It’s a safe bet that most of your site’s visitors will be able to take advantage of the WebP format!On the other hand, you can also use Google Analytics to know the browsers used by your site visitors. And therefore, to know if it is fascinating to use this image format with an alternative display solution for your visitors. If all users and visitors to your website are using Google Chrome or a WebP-enabled browser, providing an alternative solution may not be necessary. If you choose this solution, check Google Analytics regularly to ensure you are not losing visitors. So what does Google Analytics say?

Weebly


Weebly is a platform for creating and managing an online presence, ie websites, blogs or online stores, it is equipped with website creation and web content management software and is based on the principle of drag and drop, which allows you to customize your site without programming. Weebbly offers a free website construction tool, this tool allows you to enrich a site by adding objects found elsewhere on the net (photos, videos, etc.) by simply "drag and drop" (click and drag) . However, the website allows its users to use a subdomain name if it is available. Users can therefore buy a domain name directly or use an existing domain name via a redirect. The advantages of Weebly The Weebly platform offers a large number of advantages that should not be overlooked, for example:
  • Site speeds are fast: in fact, Weebly scored an A on Bitcatcha's speed test. This is not surprising all the same, when you know that it is intended to host e-Commerce sites.
  • Design Flexibility and Themes: Weebly has been offering a multitude of templates to its users for a few years now, however, they adjust the availability of these templates quite frequently, which means that the creator cares about the smallest details of their product.
  • The editor is simple and easy to use
  • Weebly mobile app – create and manage from your mobile device : This is an app that is unique to Weebly. However, the Weebly mobile app is nothing more than what it sounds like, an app that works on your mobile device and lets you edit your site there.
  • The Weebly App Center: which is different with the Weebly mobile application, the App Center gives you additional options to increase the capabilities of your website. It is an element that every site creator should have, this because it allows to separate the main activity from the extended functionalities.
The disadvantages of Weebly Weebly not only has advantages, this platform also has several disadvantages, including:
  • No domain choice for free subscriptions
  • Limited blogging tools
  • Paid support services

WooCommerce Payment is a payment gateway that WooCommerce offers for WordPress websites. This gateway uses Stripe to easily configure online payments from your WordPress admin panel. Plus, with a verification package, you can get your money much faster. As part of web development, we use WooCommerce Payment which we can install and configure on your online store.

What is WooCommerce Payment used for?

WooCommerce Payments is actually developed and offered by WooCommerce itself, it offers a simple and intuitive payment gateway that will of course work with the WooCommerce system. So you can accept all major credit cards/debit cards and enable options for recurring payments and subscriptions. Seeing how the gateway is so ingrained in WooCommerce, all payment collection and money management is done in the WordPress dashboard. So you can submit refunds, view payments, and respond to chargebacks right from your dashboard. Couple that with low fees and basic editing settings and you've found the perfect payment solution for collecting payments online.

What is special about WooCommerce Payment?

WooCommerce Payments has the distinction of being a free extension to install and use regularly. Fees are set at 2.9 + 0.30 USD per transaction, with plus or minus 1% additional for cards issued outside the United States.

Benefits of Drupal

  • WooCommerce Payment integrates well with many other WooCommerce extensions, including WooCommerce Subscriptions.
  • It grants direct access to all payments and settings in the WordPress dashboard, thus making it much easier to consolidate your workflow and stick to one area of the internet.
  • It's an option to accept payments from around the world, with some benefits of being a US merchant.
  • WooCommerce is an in-dashboard dispute management center.
  • This is a deposit setup area to ensure you receive all payments to your bank account within a reasonable time.

How to start using Drupal?

To start using WooCommerce, we first go to the WooCommerce settings, Payment Gateways tab, you must activate the payment method by check and specify the shipping address for the payment. However, you can also notify the customer that his order will only be processed upon receipt or even cashing of his check. You can also refund a payment by going to the specific order and clicking the Refund button via WooCommerce Payments.

WooCommerce default payment methods

WooCommerce distinguishes several default payment methods. When you launch an online business, you don't always know how successful you will be… or not. I think that starting sales by activating payments by check, bank transfer and Paypal is a good basis. However, if the turnover justifies it, switching to the secure payment by credit card offered by your bank will be the most effective solution and even certainly the least expensive. This solution can thus supplement or replace Paypal. However, you will need to contact your bank to set up a Distance Selling Agreement (VAD) and thus acquire a payment gateway compatible with your banking establishment.
