Our Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway was built with the core values of Cryptocurrency in mind with regards to anonymity and security. The plugin seamlessly enables your store to accept Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and more, right away by simply adding your Wallet addresses.
The plugin was created to solve a solution that we and several merchants were facing, which was a gateway that respects customer privacy, no external redirects, seamless integration, has no middleman fees, and we achieved it. Over the years our plugin has been improved to also offer Zeroconf support enabling customers to instantly receive their products without risk to the merchant.

Pay for development to add support for additional cryptocurrencies:
- Install the plugin into your WordPress website.
- Add cryptocurrency addresses in the Address List in the settings.
- Choose a payment processing API that will be used to check the blockchain for incoming payments
- Enable the payment gateway in the settings and click save.
- Disable internal WordPress Cron jobs and setup external Cron jobs (recommended)
Optionally you may navigate through the settings to customize the payment gateway to your preferences. If you are using the HD Wallet Add-on, you can add the master public key of your wallet instead of adding addresses to the address list in step 2.
