You can remove the payment method(s) by adding the following code to your functions.php file:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_available_payment_gateways', 'arrow_design_unset_gateway_by_category' );

function arrow_design_unset_gateway_by_category( $available_gateways ) {
if ( is_admin() ) return $available_gateways;
if ( ! is_checkout() ) return $available_gateways;
$unset = false;
$category_ids = array( 26, 29 ); //change category id here 
foreach ( WC()->cart->get_cart_contents() as $key => $values ) {
$terms = get_the_terms( $values['product_id'], 'product_cat' ); 
foreach ( $terms as $term ) { 
if ( in_array( $term->term_id, $category_ids ) ) {
$unset = true;
break;
}
}
}
if ( $unset == true ) unset( $available_gateways['cod'] );
return $available_gateways;
}
