Take credit card payments with the Realex Remote Payment Gateway directly on your WooCommerce Store.
Realex for WooCommerce is a gateway plugin that allows you to take credit card payments via Realex directly on your site.
You must have an active merchant account with Realex in order to make use of this plugin. To take advantage of the RealVault for storing of customer credit card info, contact your Realex salesperson and request that they enable RealVault for your account.
With Realex you can accept payments from Visa, Master Card, American Express, Laser, Switch and Diners.
The customer enters their credit card details on your site during the checkout process and Realex handles the rest.
This results in a completely integrated checkout process during which the user never has to leave your site.
Realex also offers a secure way to store your customers credit card data in their RealVault. RealVault is a chargeable service and must be switched on before it can be used.
If you enable this feature your customers can choose to save their credit cards for future checkouts, and manage their cards on your site.
