FAQ

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.

I have been testing this plugin over last few days and I'm impressed about how easy it is. With very few clicks I can actually install and configure it, getting any website immediately ready to accept crypto! At the moment they have just 6 different coins, though they are one of the most popular.
