ArQmA Payments Gateway for WooCommerce

1. Installation and configuration

  • download plugin (save as zip file from our repository)
  • on wordpress, you need to have preinstalled woocommerce addon
  • select Plugins from left side menu, than add new and upload downloaded before zip file
  • go to Arqma section on left side and choose settings
  • module is with predefined default values, you need to set own connection type viewkey or arqma-wallet-rpc

1.1 Use your wallet address and viewkey (recomended version)

This is the easiest way to start accepting Arqma on your website. You'll need:

Your Arqma wallet address starting with a
Your wallet's secret viewkey

You can easy generate new one on or

Then simply select the viewkey option in the settings page and paste your address and viewkey. You're all set!

Note on privacy: when you validate transactions with your private viewkey, your viewkey is sent to (but not stored on) over HTTPS. This could potentially allow an attacker to see your incoming, but not outgoing, transactions if they were to get his hands on your viewkey. Even if this were to happen, your funds would still be safe and it would be impossible for somebody to steal your money. For maximum privacy use your own arqma-wallet-rpc instance.

1.2 Using arqma-wallet-rpc

The most secure way to accept ArQmA on your website. You'll need:

Root access to your webserver
Latest Arqma-currency binaries

After downloading (or compiling) the Arqma binaries on your server, install the systemd unit files or run arqmad and arqma-wallet-rpc with screen or tmux. You can skip running arqmad by using a remote node with arqma-wallet-rpc by adding --daemon-address to the arqma-wallet-rpc.service file.

Note on security: using this option, while the most secure, requires you to run the Arqma wallet RPC program on your server. Best practice for this is to use a view-only wallet since otherwise your server would be running a hot-wallet and a security breach could allow hackers to empty your funds.
