Paytomat Launches Crypto Gateway Plugin for Woocommerce

Aug 17, 2018 · 3 min read

It has been said many times, that the ability to pay via cryptocurrency on a website or in a store can massively improve the capabilities of any business. From attracting new customers — fans of certain crypto — to demonstrating that your business can move with the times. Well today, we match these words with deeds.

Without further ado, we introduce to you, the Paytomat Crypto Gateway — the world’s first WordPress plugin allowing the acceptance of payments in any popular cryptocurrency easily and quickly, regardless of what exactly you are selling — physical or digital goods. All of them can be sold for any digital currency supported by Paytomat. The list contains both popular projects and ones that are just at the beginning of their journey. We give you a chance to make their users your customers!

Before anything else, we want to explain why we created a plug-in and why we made it specifically for Wordpress. For those who don’t know, WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL.

Firstly, because of the plug-in architecture and a template system, it is a very convenient tool for creating different types of web content such as blogs, media galleries, forums, and of course online stores. For the latter, it offers a full range of eCommerce options, from one‑click payment buttons to a fully customizable online store. Moreover, according to the WordPress team, their product powers 31% of the internet at the moment.

Secondly, plug-ins don’t require users to have any specific knowledge of programming or understanding of any coding languages. All they need to do is simply find the right plug-in for their needs, install it, configure it in a convenient dashboard menu and start working. That’s why we picked a plug-in for WordPress as our testing ground and added our solution to 44,225 WordPress plug-ins with 1,253,649,315 total downloads.

Let’s talk a little more about the plug-in itself. Paytomat Crypto Gateway works in conjunction with two products — the popular WooCommerce plug-in and Paytomat’s Merchant Web Panel. The first one is familiar to medium-sized and small businesses. It is the most popular eCommerce platform on the web that powers over 28% of all online stores. On WordPress, this plug-in allows stores to sell anything using a variety of payment methods. The second product in a bundle is Paytomat. Our software is responsible for carrying out all processes associated with crypto-wallets, transactions, and crypto-payment settings.

Similar to the offline world, the payment process in online-store is quite simple:

  • Your customer selects the product and adds it to the shopping cart (as they would normally do anywhere else).
  • When they click the “Pay” button, customers choose the payment method and cryptocurrency they want to pay in.
  • After that, a system generates a QR-code, which they have to scan with the crypto-wallet app.
  • Crypto-assets are credited to your personal Paytomat account, from where you can manage them at your discretion.

If you have an online store with installed WooCommerce, don’t miss the chance to try Paytomat Crypto Gateway.

We wish you a whole lot of successful and profitable sales! Do not forget to follow the updates.
