When I started this series, I did not know that scratching my own itch would be a scratch for many others. As my mantra on making videos for my YouTube channel is make videos to remember what challenges have come your way as you code/develop solutions for clients and others.
The Building a custom Woocommerce Payment Gateway
I have so far played around with over 5 mobile payment APIs in Uganda all with different implementations. However, they still have end result, payments have to be collected to a virtual wallet for a shop owner and later they can collect their cut.
In the video series below, I wanted to share the knowledge acquired over the investigations I had with the different payments company. Some APIs of course more easy to work with, others with outdated technology like SOAP APIs.
Handling payment APIs are more or less similar and the concepts remain the same as you will see the videos below. I will at a later time show the differences but this will be in sandboxes or simulated API integrations.
However, you can learn the basics in the 6 part video series below and implement your own payments gateway.
