Using the CoinPayments Payment Gateway App
Table of Contents
The CoinPayments Payment Gateway app allows you to accept cryptocurrency payments on you website so your customers can pay with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Verge, and other cryptocurrencies via CoinPayments for as low as 0.5%.
Over 115 different coins are supported, and you can pick & choose which coins you want to accept, and even have payments converted to a currency or cryptocurrency of your choosing.
To use this gateway, you will need an active CoinPayments account.
Setup & Usage
