You may want to disable payment gateways depending on the user role or user capability. For example, you may want to disable PayPal for “user role: shop_manager” or enable a specific gateway for “user role: customer”. All you need is pasting the following code in your functions.php

Is There a WooCommerce “Payment Gateways by User Role” Plugin?

If you don’t feel 100% confident with coding, I decided to look for a reliable plugin that achieves the same result of this snippet (and more).

In this case, I found the WooCommerce Conditional Payment Gateways plugin to be the most complete when you need to enable/disable payment gateways based on certain criteria. You can create unlimited “rules” and use, for example, cart totals, billing country, shipping country, user role and much more to define which payment gateway shows and which not.

But in case you don’t want to use plugins and wish to code (or wish to try that), then keep reading 🙂
