Bit-pay has expanded our software offering with a fully functional API, which gives merchants a server-to-server interface to accept bitcoins easily and securely.
The bit-pay payment API is designed for merchants that need full control over their customers’ shopping and checkout experience. Bit-pay’s API offers all of the same checkout and invoice features that are available through our checkout buttons and browser posts.
With the API, merchants can:
- Create an Invoice
- Fetch an Invoice
- Receive Invoice status updates
The API is based on JSON and includes command line utilities that provide an easy-to-use client interface.
Developers that are interested in writing wrappers or libraries around our API for PHP, opencart, zencart, eShop, osCommerce, or any other popular shopping cart tools, should contact us. We would like to offer these libraries to any merchant that would like to use them.
