Getting error on checkout: Could not generate new bitcoin address , what to do ?

Your webhost is probably blocking outgoing HTTPS connections. Blockonomics requires an outgoing HTTPS PORT (port 443) to generate new address. Check with your webhost to allow this. Consult this article for more details.

Order is still on pending payment status even after two confirmations

Your webhost is blocking incoming callbacks from bots, our you have a DDOS protection in place that is causing this. Blockonomics server does payment callbacks to update trasnsaction status and cannot emulate a browser accessing your website. Remove the DDOS protection for blockonomics.co

I have multiple websites, how do I set this up?

Just create a new xpub for each site and add to blockonomics wallet watcher. In merchants tab you will get option to specify callback url for each of them. Install this plugin on each of your sites and following the same setup procedure. Thats it! You can monitor many sites under same blockonomics emailid.


Amazing plugin!

I received the payments directly into my bitcoin wallet. Seamless integration into my store’s theme with a reasonable 1% fee.

Good plugin. Great support. Honest review.

This is an honest review of this plugin and its development team, as opposed to the last 2 reviews which appear to be dishonest (and one clearly racist).

1. Straightforward 1% fee and clearly stated on their site how it is calculated.
2. Your funds go direct to YOUR wallet which means NO ONE CAN STEAL from you.
3. They have excellent support via telegram and are quite active.
4. They ACTUALLY try to improve things and build on things and are communicative.
4. They have multiple platforms covered not just WP and try to improve things on those too. Obviously development takes time and I too wish they could somehow suddenly speed things up.
5. When shapeshift stuffed everyone in the industry with their policy changes these guys immediately started looking at alternatives and already integrated one.

1. Since they are young and also not hugeeeee their focus at the moment is primarily on BTC and then slowly expanding on it where they can. They do not have other direct to wallet currencies built in yet and development will take time.

So that is an honest fair review of this plugin and its development team.

Worst Plugin

Lost money with this plugin. Plugin commission is looking 5-7%, not 1% as advertised.
Also plugin have very poor code quality.

Poor code quality

Code is of very poor quality – outsourced to cheap Indian developers no doubt.

I would avoid this plugin. They say they take 1% fee but how they actually get this is cryptic – there is no section on their website explaining that you have to load BTC in order for them to process your transactions.
