Accepting Bitcoin Stack


(Andrew) #1

Is there a stack for accepting payments in Bitcoin?

Thanks,

If there was one, I would stay away from it…

The only Bitcoin stack I know of, is a free one for accepting Bitcoin donations: http://www.barz-stacks.eu/stacks/free_stacks/bitcoin/
It’s not what you’re looking for, but it might be a start.

Menno.

That’s pants! Are there any other ways of getting paid by Bitcoin via personal website?

The Cart 2 stack from @yuzool says it can handle Bitcoin payments, but I suspect (not 100% sure) the Bitcoin payments are handled by Stripe. Stripe recently announced it will end support for Bitcoin in April.

Thanks @NeilUK - that’s right Cart 2 can accept Bitcoin payments via Stripe - but only until April 23rd this year:

Hi Michael, sad to hear that you are ceasing to support Bitcoin.
Can I ask why Cart2 is suspending Bitcoin support?
Many of my clients are interested in Bitcoin payment options.

Cheers

Strip is dropping support, so cart 2 or any cart option that uses Strip for bitcoin will stop working.
If you read the post that Michael linked to you’ll see the reasons why Strip is dropping bitcoin.

Micheal isn’t dropping support for Bitcoin. Cart2 uses Stripe to process Bitcoin payments; Stripe are ending Bitcoin support as the link Yuzool provided explains.

Ok Neil thanks for the reply.

Thanks @TINO and sorry for the confusion there - thanks for filling in @NeilUK + @teefers :slight_smile:

I actually thought Bitcoin support in Cart2 was pretty cool but not sure how many people use it. In fact, you’re the first or second person to express real interest. If there’s still interest I’ll look at ways to integrate Bitcoin or other cryptos.

After a good discussion on the forum we added the option to remove PayPal which surprised me as I had assumed it was the preferred option - so always happy and want to hear from people as to what they want. I want to put out things that give the most value and what people will use! :slight_smile:

I’m interested because a friend of mine has been banging on about how Bitcoin will become more and more important. I expect though to have to drive Bitcoin users to my site (lots of Social Media to mine!). My friend says just let Bitcoin users contact me to make a direct payment. Have set up my wallet so that’s possible, but a payment Stack accepting Bitcoin would be very useful.

Hello Michael. Thanks for the prompt response.

Related Cart2.
In my case, at the request of many clients, it is an advantage to be able to offer the 3 options; payments by credit card, PayPal and Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies if needed).

Cheers

Noted @TINO - that sounds a good combo (and Cart2 can do that until April 23).

@Beeswaxthesecond thanks and will look into it :slight_smile:


(Andrew) #15

Would it be possible to accept Btc payments straight to my wallet via a Stack on my website?


(Nicky) #16

Yes, as @Beeswaxthesecond says also I’m interested in a Payment Stack that accept the payment of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, would be excellent, especially if there would be any way that could be integrated in the future with Cart2 (after April 23).

As @TINO says to offer payments (Cart2) with credit card, PayPal and Bitcoin.
