Quick Start Guide

To get up and running with our plugin quickly, see the GUIDE here:

Brief Description

Add the ability to accept bitcoin in WooCommerce via BTCPayServer. This plugin is also available through the wordpress store.

Detail Description

Bitcoin is a powerful new peer-to-peer platform for the next generation of financial technology. The decentralized nature of the Bitcoin network allows for a highly resilient value transfer infrastructure, and this allows merchants to gain greater profits.

This is because there are little to no fees for transferring Bitcoins from one person to another. Unlike other payment methods, Bitcoin payments cannot be reversed, so once you are paid you can ship! No waiting days for a payment to clear.

  2. Verify that your web server is not blocking POSTs from servers it may not recognize. Double check this on your firewall as well, if one is being used.
  3. Check the version of this plugin against the official plugin repository to ensure you are using the latest version. Your issue might have been addressed in a newer version! See the Releases page for the latest.

Common errors

SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

This can come in two conditions:

  • Your BTCPayServer is running on a test certificate
  • You have not installed root certificates on the wordpress host

In the first case, please, make sure a valid SSL certificates is installed on your BTCPayServer. You can check this is the case by browsing to the BTCPayServer page, and check there is no browser warnings.

In the second case run,

sudo apt-get install ca-certificates
