2. Go to this GitHub page. Click Clone or download > Download ZIP to start downloading the BitcoiNote WooCommerce plugin.

3. Login to WP Admin on [yourdomain.com]/wp-admin .


Once synchronization of the daemon completes we will test the Gateway setup

Log in with username client and the gateway password that you set earlier.

2. It's normal that a "wallet problem" is displayed while the daemon is still syncing. If you’re seeing this, please go back to step 3 and wait for the synchronization to complete. If not, you may continue below.
