Good news for crypto bugs out there: Shopify stores can now accept BTC, ETH, and over 70 other coins at checkoyut if they install a plugin from NOWPayments.
NOWPayments is a Crypto Payment Gateway and it recently added e-commerce platform Shopify to to the list of providers that can accept payments in cryptocurrencies through their plugins.
NOWPayments was created by the same people who brought us the ChangeNOW crypto exchange service, and works with top-dogs in the industry such as Travala.com, Guarda Wallet and OKEx.
Shopify is one of Canada’s largest companies, and it offers a platform for over 1.1 million merchants in 175 countries, handling marketing, payments, checkout, and shipping for online stores.
NOWPayments already supports OpenCart, WooCommerce, Ecwid and others, and now Shopify joined the “party” so to speak, which is a big step for normalizing crypto in the “normiesphere”.
If you have an online store on Shopify, you can now install the official plug-in and accept payments in 70 different coins including BTC, ETH, XRP, XMR, DOGE and USDT.
NOWPayments charges a 0.5% transaction fee plus a 0.5% conversion fee if applicable, and it makes for a non custody service, as in you will send the crypto-coin of choice to the company’s deposit address and the Shopify store owner receives the currency of their choice.
NOWPayments enables Shopify customers to make purchases by converting their crypto holdings at checkout into fiat currencies, creating an ever-growing global network of companies that can now accept cryptocurrencies and developing infrastructure for mass adoption of crypto for everyday use.
