Step 2 – Enabling/Disabling DivideBuy Payments

  • Select the ‘Payments’ tab of your WooCommerce Settings area.
  • Locate DivideBuy in the list and ensure the ‘Enabled’ toggle is set to active to enable DivideBuy payments with your website. To disable DivideBuy payments, please ensure the toggle is set to inactive.
