This week we’re launching 4 new WooCommerce extensions (including a FREE Amazon payment gateway!). We’ve also got some significant updates to 3 payment gateways. First up is Amazon Payments Advanced, the first free payment gateway, brought to you by WooThemes and Amazon.
Pay with Amazon is embedded in your WooCommerce store. Transactions take place via Amazon widgets, so the buyer never leaves your site.
Amazon Payments Advanced- our first FREE payment gateway
This week, we’re proud to announce the Amazon Payments Advanced payment gateway for WooCommerce. The first free payment gateway we’re launching here, we’ve worked closely with Amazon to be able to bring this wonderful functionality to you all.

Next up is Product Documents. As the name suggests, Product Documents adds functionality for attaching various documents to products, and display them in a neat accordion on the product’s details page.
How can Product Documents help you?
When selling products, both physical and digital, there are often instruction manuals, training booklets and other documentation that is bundled with the product. Perhaps you’re selling a printer and need to host digital versions of instruction manuals. Product Documents can help out with this, making it really easy to display your instruction manual right below the information about a product.
Give customers access to product documentation and help reduce barriers to purchase. Or just give you a slick way to display product information to customers.
Documentation for a product is often the tipping point at which a customer decides to purchase the product. If there isn’t documentation provided, the customer cannot be certain whether or not they can fully understand the product. Clear (and visible) documentation for a product puts your customer’s mind at ease, knowing you’ve got them covered if they need a hand while using your product. Having this information displayed right on the sales page for the product is a great way of showing your customers that you are there to help.
Following close alongside Product Documents are 2 payment gateways: Amazon Simple Pay and Click&Buy.
