This is a cool function you can apply to any payment gateways for any order threshold. for example, you may want to disable bank transfers if orders are below $10, or disable PayPal payments if orders are above a certain cart total. Here’s what I did.

Is There a WooCommerce “Payment Gateways by Cart Total” 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 🙂
