Do I need an API key?

No. You just need to insert your crypto address of the cryptocurrencies you wish to accept. Whenever a customer pays, the money will be automatically and instantly forwarded to your address.

How long do payments take before they’re confirmed?

This depends on the cryptocurrency you’re using. Bitcoin usually takes up to 11 minutes, Ethereum usually takes less than a minute.

Is there a minimum for a payment?

Yes, the minimums change according to the chosen cryptocurrency and can be checked here.
If the WooCommerce order total is below the chosen cryptocurrency’s minimum, an error is raised to the user.

After trying a couple of other options I decided to give BlockBee (recent CryptoApi) a try. I had a small installation issue but the support was really fast, got the solution to my problem in a matter of minutes. So 5 starts for the support definitely. 🙂 After I finished the setup, it works smoothly with my Woocommerce plugin. Plus it has many more currencies to choose from compared to many others. (If you would add Polygon options too, then I would be super happy 🙂 ) Thank you for awesome plugin
