I haven’t been able to find a solution.. When I click on payment methods from the my account page it takes me to the payment methods page, however the “Payment methods link disappears. Any help is appreciated. I don’t know why it’s disappearing.

The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

I have the “Woocommerce stripe gateway” enabled. Any pointers are appreciated.

Are you referring to this add payment method button in the My Account area?

This kind of problem is usually caused by either a conflict with your theme or with another plugin.

The best way to determine this is to:

  • Temporarily switch your theme to Storefront
  • Disable all plugins except for WooCommerce
  • Repeat the action that is causing the problem

If you’re not seeing the same problem after completing the conflict test, then you know the problem was with the plugins and/or theme you deactivated. To figure out which plugin is causing the problem, reactivate your other plugins one by one, testing after each, until you find the one causing conflict. You can find a more detailed explanation on how to do a conflict test here.

I think Justin means the actual My Account menu Tab for Payment Methods disappears when you go to the Payment Methods page. I am having the same issue. It doesn’t happen when you go to other pages e.g. Orders.

Could you both provide a screenshot of the tabs that are missing for you? You can upload the image to an image sharing program and provide the link in your response. Please make sure to blur out any personal details that should not be made public such as logins or passwords or other financial information.

Here are 2 screen shots of what is happening:

Thanks for the screenshot @justinrains – were you able to do the plugin/theme conflict test that Amanda explained above.That is often the cause of dashboard issues.

If you’ve deactivated everything except for WooComemrce and Stripe and still do not see that option, Could you please share a copy of your site’s System Status? You can find it via WooCommerce > Status.
Select “Get system report” and then “Copy for support”. Once you’ve done that, paste it here in your response.

We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.

I have the same issue about “payment methods” navigation on “my account” page. Payment Method menu disappears when it is clicked or active.

I am also experiencing this same issue:
When a User visits the “My Account” page, then goes to the “Payment Methods” tab, it disappears from the My Account Navigation menu when the page is visited.

I had the same issue while using the payment method by stipe. I figured out the issue. If you want to show the “Payment Methods” menu when it is clicked or active then you have to enable “Enable Payment via Saved Cards”

WooCommerce Payment Gateways: Choosing the Right One for Your Online Store

Posted on July 6, 2018 by Chris Lema | Updated: September 7, 2018

Online store owners spend hours meticulously tinkering and tweaking their eCommerce site’s look and design, yet give less consideration to how their customers will actually pay for their products and services. Given that 12 percent of customers will abandon their cart if the checkout process is too complicated, choosing the wrong payment gateway can hurt your sales numbers. Although all WooCommerce payment gateways perform the same basic function, not all of them are right for your eCommerce business. Just like your customers, you want the best fit for you, a choice that brings the best value at the lowest cost. Happily, WooCommerce site owners have plenty of options to choose from. Here’s what to consider when choosing between WooCommerce payment gateways.

How WooCommerce Payment Gateways Work

All online credit card transactions have three parties: you, the customer, and the payment gateway. Think of the payment gateway as a mediator that authorizes payments between your customers, their credit card company, and your bank. Here are the steps:

  1. Customer places an order and submits their payment information.
  2. Payment information is sent from the eCommerce site to the payment gateway.
  3. Payment gateway forwards request to the customer’s lender (bank, credit card, etc.)
  4. The lender determines the availability of funds and authorizes payment through the gateway.
  5. Payment gateway deposits funds into your merchant account.

Although this is a simplified version, it’s clear how integral payment gateways are to the transaction process.

Factors to Consider When Choosing A Payment Gateway

Every payment gateway has a variety of options, fee structures, and other capabilities that will be valuable to specific business needs, such as recurring payments.

Should You Look For Lower Fixed Cost or Lower Transaction Percentage?

Every payment gateway will have a percentage transaction fee and a fixed cost charge for every sale you make. These charges and fees will determine how much money you get to keep from your sales. Transaction fees also change depending on whether the sale happens within the U.S. or across borders. If you’re outside the U.S., the fees will be different in your country.

Generally, if you’re selling high-priced items, you want to minimize your percentage transaction costs. If you’re selling low-priced items, you want to minimize your fixed costs. Choose a payment gateway that fits your business model to get the best bang for your buck.

Subscriptions and recurring payments

If you’re offering subscriptions, memberships, installment plans, or similar types of payment models with multiple transactions, you’ll need a payment gateway that supports automatic recurring payments. Recurring payment support is one of those indispensable features that create positive customer experiences. But, because of the additional security measures associated with storing customer payment information, not all payment gateways are designed to support these payment models.

Many major WooCommerce payment gateways like Square, Stripe, PayPal, and Amazon Pay have payment features or flexibilities that include setting up automatic recurring payments and managing subscriptions. WooCommerce users also have the option of using the platform’s recurring payments plugin, WooCommerce Subscriptions, for monthly clubs, weekly service subscriptions, or yearly software billing packages. The premium extension supports both automatic and manual types of recurring payments. While manual payments require customers to log into your store, all payment gateway extensions can be used by customers to renew their subscription. Not all extensions support automatic renewal, but here is a list of those that do.

Integrated vs Hosted Payment Forms

Your customers are going to pay for their purchases through your gateway regardless of where the transaction takes place. An integrated gateway performs all of the information collection and authorization on your website (on WooCommerce this typically happens on a page like, while a hosted payment form takes the customer offsite to complete their transaction (such as before sending them back to your site to view a confirmation page.

PCI Compliance

Whether your payment gateway is integrated or hosted, it needs to be secure. Your customers’ data and your business’s livelihood depends on the safety of your gateway. Most payment processing services comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). These information security requirements apply to all organizations that handle credit card transactions. But don’t assume that a payment gateway is in compliance. Check the gateway’s compliance page to find out their PCI Service Provider level. Level 1 is the most stringent.
