How does it work?

  1. The Buyer prepares the order and click on the “pay with bitcoins” button.
  2. The store sends its bitcoin address and the callback URL of its site to the Apirone API Server. He will receive immediately a new bitcoin, a QR code and also the amount of the order converted into Bitcoin.
  3. Then, the buyer scans the QR code and pays for the order. This transaction goes to blockchain
  • Our server immediately intercepts it and sends a callback to the URL address provided by the store. This is only the first callback regarding this unconfirmed transaction. It is too early to deliver the order. We notify the store that a payment order has been initiated.
  • Now we look forward to the confirmation on the network. Usually, it will take about ten minutes. Usually, it takes about 10 minutes.
  • After the first confirmation, our server transfers the bitcoin to the destination address provided by the store and makes a second callback. The buyer can now receive his products.
  • The store completes the transaction.

The plugin work with our own RESTful API – Bitcoin Forwarding. For more details on how does it works, visit the Apirone website, in the section “How does it work” https://apirone.com/docs/how-it-works

Multilingual interface available in German, English, French and Russian.
