DashPayments for WooCommerce
DashPayments for WooCommerce is a Wordpress plugin that enables WooCommerce merchants to accept Dash directly, without the need for a third-party payment processor.
- Uses BIP32 extended public (xpub) keys for address generation.
- Requires access to an Insight-API-Dash instance
- An Electrum-Dash wallet for receiving payments
- WordPress 4.4.2+
- WooCommerce 2.5.2+
- PHP 5.5+ with valid extensions:
Developers: Building the plugin
Install composer using your package manager, then use
composer install to fetch all dependencies and place them into 'vendor/'.
If desired, use 'zip' to package the directory into a zip file with the same name:
cd .. && zip -r dashpay-woocommerce.zip dashpay-woocommerce/
Installation and Activation
Extract the .zip file and copy or FTP the dashpay-woocommerce directory to the WordPress 'plugins' directory. Activate the plugin in the WordPress-admin console.
Navigate to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Checkout. Click the 'Dash' option at the top of the page. Paste your xpub key from Electrum-Dash into the box labeled "Dash BIP32 Extended Public Key", and click 'Save changes' at the bottom of the page.
If you see a message stating "Dash payment gateway is operational", you should be ready to accept payment in Dash.
Here's a YouTube video demonstrating the exact process I described above:
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (READ THIS SECTION)
It's highly recommended that you setup a cron job to handle background order processing. It's not technically required, but will catch things like if a user closes their browser before the payment gets processed.
For manual cron jobs, add this line to your crontab (replace <yourdomain.com> with your own WordPress site URL):
* * * * * curl -s http://<yourdomain.com>/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron > /dev/null 2>&1
For CPANEL, run the command below every minute (replace <yourdomain.com> with your own WordPress site URL):
curl -s http://<yourdomain.com>/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron > /dev/null 2>&1
