Bitcoin Invoice Payments
The plugin allows you to accept invoice payments via Bitcoin. Send an invoice to your customer and they will have the option to choose Bitcoin ( the other available option within UCM are PayPal, Stripe, MultisafePay and Authorize.NET). The bitcoin conversion to local currency is automatically calculated and you receive the correct amount in your bitcoin wallet. The invoice is automatically marked as paid once the bitcoin transaction takes place.
This plugin uses the popular Coinbase wallet service. You will need a Coinbase account to use this plugin. The bitcoins will go to your Coinbase wallet after a customer pays their invoice. You can transfer the bitcoins to another wallet or withdraw them to a US bank account (see below).
Please note: Coinbase currently only supports withdrawing to US bank accounts. However if you just want to keep the bitcoins online and not withdraw them to a bank account then that is fine. If you wish to withdraw your bitcoins to your bank account through Coinbase then you will need a US bank account. Please see their website for more details.
Recurring Bitcoin Payments
Do you offer a recurring service and want people to pay via bitcoins automatically? Now you can! Charge for things like hosting or ongoing service fees.
Create a subscription (with the UCM Subscription plugin) and the customer will receive a recurring invoice. The customer can setup a recurring bitcoin payment plan using their coinbase account (just like a paypal recurring payment).
Bitcoin Feature Overview
- Invoice in your own local currency, bitcoin exchange is automatically calculated
- Restrict the bitcoin payment option to certain dollar values or invoice currencies (eg: only accept bitcoin for invoices under $100)
- Support for bitcoin recurring payments – for subscription payments like hosting services ( daily, weekly, every_two_weeks, monthly, quarterly and yearly repeat periods only )
- Ability to charge an extra bitcoin fee ontop of the invoice fee
