WooCommerce Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway extension

Bitcoin and Altcoin Wallets WooCommerce Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway extension
Let logged in users pay at WooCommerce checkout using their cryptocurrency balance.


no direct payment from external wallet

This extension is NOT for paying on checkout from an external wallet that the user controls. The user pays from their on-site balance, as reported by the parent plugin.

exchange rates must work

A WooCommerce store uses one currency on which prices are set. Users can only pay using cryptocurrencies whose exchange rate to the store currency is known. For example, if the store’s currency is USD, and the user wants to pay with Litecoin, then the exchange rate of LTC to USD must be set. Alternatively, the exchange rates of USD to BTC and BTC to LTC can be used. If there is no path between the price of a currency to the store currency, then the value of the user’s balance cannot be calculated, and that currency will not appear as an option. Refer to the documentation of the parent plugin to learn more about exchange rates.
