Features

  • The gateway is fully automatic – set it and forget it.
  • Payment amount is calculated using real-time exchange rates.
  • Simplicity for you, flexibility for your customers. On our invoices, a customer can choose to pay with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and 50+ other cryptocurrencies at checkout, while your payouts are in a single currency of your choice (BTC or EUR).
  • Sandbox environment for testing with Tesnet Bitcoin.
  • No setup or recurring fees.
  • No chargebacks – guaranteed!

Functionality

  • Extend your invoice expiration time (if payouts are in BTC).
  • Accept slight underpayments automatically.
  • Refunds can be issued directly from the invoice – without involvement of the seller.

How it works – example

  1. An item in the store costs 100 euro.
  2. A customer wants to buy the item and selects to pay with Bitcoin.
  3. An invoice is generated and, according to the current exchange rate, the price is 10,000 euro per bitcoin, so the customer has to pay 0.01 bitcoins.
  4. Once the invoice is paid, the merchant gets a notification and is credited 99 euro (100 euro minus our 1% flat fee), or 0.0099 BTC.

Reviews

Great product and excellent service

The plugin is very comprehensive and easy to work with with seamless integration of WooCommerce and CoinGate. Additionally, the code is very neatly written and easy to understand the flow.

The services and customer support provided by the CoinGate team was exceptionally well. They did not left any stone unturned to help integrate their plugin with the store.

Nice and Simple

This has been a very painless plugin to setup and use. Been using it for about 6 months now with no complaints.

Works well!

After using another gateway which I didn’t like at all (goURL) I came across this one. Opened an account, set up the plugin, and voilà!, everything works well, including the payout to your Bitcoin wallet.

Highly recommended, and thank you to the developers for such a smooth user experience!

Not Available in the US

Went through installing this plugin and signing up on the website for the API info. As soon as it gave me the API information I find out I am unable to accept payments because of US regulations. It would have been nice to mention that on the plugin description or even the signup when you are looking at the merchant tools. Waste of time for US based businesses wanting to accept Altcoins.
