** UPDATE **
This plugin is only compatible with the outdated ‘Orange’ API. I may release an updated version in the future.
If you haven’t heard of WooCommerce, it’s a WordPress plugin by the guys over at WooThemes that can turn your site into a robust online store. Want to know the best part? It’s free… well, sortof. In order to recieve payments, WooCommerce has to connect to a payment gateway (with a plugin extension) and it only ships with a few. This can be a problem because there are multitudes of other options out there. WooThemes sells additional payment gateway extensions on their website for around $30 or $50. They’ve also got a forum thread where they attempt to gauge the popularity of payment gateways for which an extension doesn’t exist yet.
Now, I’m partial to one specific gateway myself. I’ve been using Braintree, they’ve got good rates and a great API. Braintree has been wayyyy down on WooCommerce’s list of upcoming extensions, so I decided to write it myself. I modified one of the free extensions for a similar gateway. I’ve been using it for over a month now with great success and now I’m offering it to you. Not for fifty bucks, not even thirty! That’s right- FREE!

If freebies give you the heebie-jeebies, feel free to buy me a drink with this handy-dandy PayPal button (I have a serious addiction to SweatLeaf tea and I need my fix).
