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. Please consult this article on how debug and fix this

Great plugin

This plugin has worked problem free, very good integration with woocommerce and WordPress.

Works like a charm

Very nice & easy to use. It's exactly what you need to accept Bitcoin in a Woocommerce store. Thanks for this great plugin!

I like it

Works great for me. I have it connected to wocommerce. I like it because the funds go directly into my account and not theirs.

Totally love this!!!

It is fast, it is reliable and the team is there for help if you encounter any issues. Works great with all my wallets, and if you are using Ledger Live you just need to read the manual - or the author is there to help. As well - great integration into my theme - I have a special customized Genesis one and I needed a little modification: I requested a support and just within an hour they helped me! That is lightning fast!!! What I love - great fee structure, just 1%, and the incoming funds are immediately on my hardware wallet. What else to say? I have tested several of these options - but this one is absolutely favorite! You guys rock!

Bad Plugin. Lost My Money!

The plugin author wants you make a prepayment to him in Bitcoins as a Fees. I did this before my sales were generated. I bought a bitcoin with a high price, now the price of bitcoin is declining, and I have not yet generated any major sales. I.e. the author of the plugin keeps my bitcoins as a prepayment for fees, but the actual price in fiat for these my bitcoins is less if I will decide to transfer it back to US dollars. Other bitcoin payment plugins on wordpress are free and do not require any prepayments like this plugin. I moved away from this plugin.
