Hello guys,
Please I would like to ask you if I can play on DropShipping with WooCommerce (WordPress) and without Paypal because they limited my account on Paypal several times and I don't want to take risks with them

    Sure, you can use all kinds of other payment processors. Of course, as I have said numerous times on this forum, I do not recommend WordPress/Woo for any eCommerce stores due to security and PCI Compliance issues.

        A hosted platform like Shopify, BigCommerce or 3DCart where they take care of all of the security and PCI compliance.

        The only time that does not matter (as much) is when you are using an off-site payment processor (like standard PayPal).

    Not recommending Wordpress or woo-commerce for security issues?

    Damn, been out from WF for a while. Guess I'll keep it that way.

    Absolutely, you can.
    You can use Stripe and a bunch of other payment gateways, although I recommend using Stripe as it's simple and secured.
    The only downside to eliminating PayPal is the bucket of users who prefer to pay using PayPal.
    However, if that's an issue for you, go ahead and use Stripe, Square, Braintree, etc.
    And there are no issues using Woocommerce/Wordpress.
    I know several sites build on WordPress + Woocommerce that are doing well in ecommerce.
    Hope that helps.

        If your account keeps getting limited then it would be my guess that you have not upgraded to a business account, which is free to do and only takes a few minutes

    Except for very rare occasions, if I can't pay with Paypal, I bounce.

      There's the other side of the coin, too. Many people refuse to pay with PayPal and if that is the only choice, they bounce!

      That's why it is best to offer both PayPal and a regular payment provider (Stripe, Authorize.net, Shopify Payments, etc.).

    as someone has mentioned pci compliance issues already, if you don't want to have any of them, then consider external checkout (a.k.a hosted payment page). It is on the PSP's website which means it must be PCI compliant by default. Otherwise, you need to make sure that you yourself comply with security standards.
    If not PayPal, then you can look up Cardinity. It has both a direct checkout form for your website and a hosted payment page.

    Yes you can. I used a free plugin to take orders with Stripe and I was selling print on demand products via Printful

    Of course you can. Stripe and crypto currency also now freely available to add to.
    However, stripe doesn't accept high risk business like dropshipping. If you are new applicant to stripe, you need to be creative while answering their questions.

  • As mentioned, Stripe is a good one, they're less erratic when it comes to account reviews and sales spike responses.

    Preferably I'd go with your local payment processing options, such as your local bank's online payment gateway, or licensed third party providers, many of which have integrations with Woocommerce. Allows for faster underwriting, quicker access to funds, and of course there's the obvious pro of being able to walk in to their office should any account issues arise.

  • I'd go with local payment processors. Better customer response overall AND they make it easy for new users to sign up and use their platforms. Unlike Paypal who seems to go out of their way to make their service harder to use.

    You can use stripe. Also, check-in your country for online payment gateways available there.
    A lot of companies and startups have been using Wordpress/WooCommerce it is up to you to choose the company to work with.
