Coinbase

A WordPress plugin and widget that lets you accept bitcoin on your site!

  1. Generate an API key with the 'user' and 'merchant' permissions at https://coinbase.com/settings/api. For security reasons, please do not grant any other permissions to this key. If you don't have a Coinbase account, sign up at https://coinbase.com/merchants. Coinbase offers daily payouts for merchants in the United States. For more infomation on setting up payouts, see https://coinbase.com/docs/merchant_tools/payouts.

  2. Visit your admin section and click Plugins -> Add New. Then search for "Coinbase".

  3. Once you’ve installed the plugin, visit the Settings -> Coinbase page and enter the credentials obtained in step 0.

  4. Now that the widget is enabled you can add a bitcoin payment button anywhere on your blog using one of two methods:

  • a "short code" that looks like this:
[coinbase_button name="Alpaca Socks" price_string="10.00" price_currency_iso="CAD"]

You can add any customizable values as described in our documentation. This works on any page or location of your site.

  • using the WordPress "widget" which will appear in the right sidebar of your app.
