WordPress Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway Integration

February 19th, 2018

Cryptocurrencies are all the rage right now, if you have contemplated accepting crypto as a form of payment on your website, it is not as hard as you might think and there are a number of payment gateways that make the integration with your site relatively easy.

The team at CircleBC can help you through that process, not only to pick the right payment gateway for your business needs, which currencies you want to accept, how to setup the pricing for your products and then how you can manage your wallets moving forward.

There are a number of WordPress cryptocurrency plugins and gateways which integrate with WooCommerce, the crypto options become another payment option available on checkout in addition to your standard gateways including fiat, PayPal, etc. The major benefit of using a cryptocurrency gateway that is driven by a plugin directly on your website is that you don’t have to pay merchant or middle man fees to assist with the processing of that order and you aren’t sending customers away from your website in order to complete the transaction.

Being virtual and despite being around since 2009 cryptocurrency is still a relatively new technology, cryptocurrencies are not regulated and there are still a number of unknowns in the crypto space when it comes to accepting payments, namely the volatility or prices, taxation obligations, security and fluctuating fees and charges.


  • There are options available to accept all the major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, there are also a range of extensions which allow you to accept a range of altcoins including Dogecoin, Ripple, EOS, NEO, Monero and Ethereum Classic.
  • Flexibility to show crypto prices in combination with AUD/USD prices
  • No merchant fees associated with the cryptocurrency transaction, note, there might be blockchain related fees which are unavoidable
  • Save cryptocurrency directly to your wallet
  • Encrypted and secure API for live exchange rate feed
  • Plugins are customisable to your needs, including ability to send receipts, refunds and retaining customer data.
