Take a look at the WooCommerce Checkout and specifically at how to disable a payment gateway (e.g. PayPal) if a specific product category is in the Cart. There are two tasks to code in this case:

  1. Find list on product categories based on all the products in the Cart
  2. Disable a specific payment ID if the target product category is in the Cart.

        $terms = get_the_terms( $values['product_id'], 'product_cat' );	
        foreach ( $terms as $term ) {
