Here is the article about how much the UI of Payment gateways impact the online Selling.
For WooCommerce stores there are many free and as well as premium payment gateways that you can integrate with your store. Here are some top plugins that can be integrated with your WooCommerce store.
Top payment gateways for WooCommerce
While deciding upon the payment gateway, you will see that there are two types of payment gateways. Namely, direct and redirect. If it’s a direct payment gateway, the users can proceed with the payments by staying within your WooCommerce app or website. On the other hand, if it’s an indirect payment gateway, the users will be redirected to the actual site of the payment gateway. Among these two types, I would highly suggest direct payment gateways.
