Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • WordPress 3.3 or greater
  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater
  • WooCommerce 1.6 or greater

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the plugin, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our payment plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

Configuration

The configuration is done via WooCommerce Payments configuration.
You will need Cryptoo.me Application key. It is free indeed.
Register, create new Application at Application Manager, and use the Application API key in the form.
Set Application Name to your store name, and Application URL to the store URL to receive extra traffic from the Applications List

Upgrading

Automatic updates should work a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

If on the off chance you do encounter issues with the shop/category pages after an update you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ‘save’. That should return things to normal.

FAQ

I already sell in USD (RUR,EUR..), why do I switch to Bitcoin ?

Do not switch – add. If you considering other currencies – search for WooCommerce multi-currency plugins.
See example: Webstore accepting BTC and USD.
If you just opening online store, the Instant Bitcoin is good place to start – there is no approval process.
In any case, this payment method is really handy for downloadable products.

There are plenty of excellent multi-currency plugins out there, but we recommend “WooCommerce Currency Switcher”.

Some advices:

  1. Use fiat currency (like USD) as the primary, and Bitcoin as secondary currency, because some payment gateways (not us! 🙂 ) do not go through the list of available currencies, but pick the first one and refuse to activate if it is not the currency they dealing with.
  2. Make sure you set 8 digits after decimal point for Bitcoin to operate with satochi.
  3. Use fixed prices, because automatic conversion often turns small USD amounts into 0 Bitcoins.
What do I need to configure the plugin ?

You will need only Cryptoo.me API key. It is free.

How do I obtain Cryptoo.me API key ?
  1. Register with Cryptoo.me .
  2. Navigate to Application Manager .
  3. Create new Application.
    We recommend to to use attractive Application Name and URL of your store to get extra customers for Application List .
  4. Grab the API key, use it in the Payment Gateway configuration page (you can find it under WooComerce -> Configuration -> Payments)
  5. You all set !
What about the fees?

The purchase will cost your customer 1% extra. See Cryptoo.me Fees and Limits.

Doesn’t work

Have a store set in another currency, tried to add this plugin, says it doesn't allow my particular currency. Sure, alright, downloaded multi-currency plugin, wasted an hour trying to figure out how to tie multi currency with this plugin.Still doesn't work. instructions would be nice.
