GNU Taler Payment Gateway for WooCommerce


This plugin provides a safe and secure way to pay via the GNU Taler system. The plugin sends a request to, and receives a response from, the GNU Taler Backend.

Next, the plugin confirms the transaction again and redirects the customer to his own wallet to confirm the transaction.

The plugin also provides the possibility for the administrator to send the custumer a refund.

For refunds, the plugin sends a refund request to the GNU Taler back-end and receives a refund-URI. This URI is forwarded to the customer via an e-mail to confirm the refund.
