The following is a guide on how you can connect your WooCommerce store to Zaprite to start accepting payments for your Orders through your hosted Zaprite Checkout, directly to your own wallets.

Add your WooCommerce store information.

2.2 Configure Checkout

Next, configure the Checkout that you would like to use for your Order payments. Enable/disable payment methods and/or add an optional premium to fiat payments.
