How does Kount work with WooCommerce?
If you have a WooCommerce membership site or a webshop built with WooCommerce you may be struggling with chargebacks from fraudulent transactions.
So did one of our customers, until they found Kount.
Kount offers an AI-driven solution that prevents fraudulent transactions before they are approved.
But to work as advertised it needs to be properly integrated with your tech stack.
In our customer’s case, he wanted to integrate Kount with WordPress, WooCommerce, and Stripe.
As there were no existing integrations that would work with Stripe for Kount in the WordPress ecosystem, we decided to build our own and make it into a WordPress plugin.
We call our plugin, Kount with Stripe for WooCommerce.
Now you get to use it too. 🙂
What you’ll need
1 – A staging site – to install and test the plugin (we use CloudWays hosting for this)
2 – WooCommerce – our preferred WordPress shopping cart solution
3 – Stripe for WooCommerce by PaymentPlugins – a free Stripe plugin for WooCommerce.
4 – Kount with Stripe for WooCommerce – our plugin that integrates Kount with WooCommerce and Stripe.
