Hi guys,

I'm new here and relatively newbie in crypto. I'm an photographer and videographer and I sell my work via my webpage. I would like to remove fiat payments and implement crypto payment in my webpage. Can you help me how to do that? I will build new page and if it is, for example, something like this

https://themeforest.net/item/stocky-a-stock-photography-marketplace-theme/8087525?s_rank=2

how could I implement crypto payment in it? So people chose photos, add them to cart and then purchase in crypto (BTC, VTC, LTC, NANO..., one or few of them, whatever)

Where to start? Thanks in advance for any help  Smiley

p.s.
English is not my native language, sorry for mistakes Smiley

There is 1 "main" choice:
Are you going to use a payment processor (like bitpay or coinpayments) or do you have the technical skill and time to do everything yourself?

I've never used bitpay, but i have used coinpayments a couple of times. They have library's and plugins available that allow you to include their service into most popular shopping cart systems.
If you decide to accept payments directly, you'll have to pick which (alt)coins you'll accept, run a daemon and use their daemon's interface to create new addresses and check for transactions funding these addresses.

I've created a testsite for the lightning network: https://unblur.ninja , the backend runs bitcoind, clightning and lightning-charged. It also shows a (very, very, very) basic integration of the coinpayments payment processor (http://unblur.ninja/opencreditline.php => see "OPEN A NEW CREDIT LINE WITH CRYPTO CURRENCY")

I dont have much time and I have limited technical skills so I would prefer to use a payment processor.

In that case, i'd suggest you look at bitpay or coinpayments. They do all the work for you, provide your dev with a toolkit, examples, plugins,... If i'm not mistaking, bitpay even allows you to convert the crypto into fiat so you can still receive fiat money instead of crypto (unsure about this tough, like i said, i never used bitpay myself).

It might be a good idear to still accept fiat payments tough, maybe incentivise the use of crypto by offering a discount? You might lose a lot of business if you ONLY accept crypto.

Thank you! Do I have to subscribe monthly/yearly or am I paying fees to them? Is there a plugin/way that customer pays in fiat and it is automatically converted in crypto that I receive in my wallet? And do you prefer Bitpay or Coinpayments?

I've heared better things about bitpay than coinpayments, however i never used bitpay... Coinpayments supports a lot of different crypto's, while bitpay does not (i'm perfectly capable of setting up a BTC payment gateway by myself without the need of an external processor, i only chose to use coinpayments because they accepted >100 coins, and i didn't want to maintain >100 wallets Wink ).
Coinpayments does not charge a monthly fee, you pay a certain percentage of every payment you receive.

I do know coinpayments also supports paypal (the bitcoin antichrist), but i don't think they automatically convert FIAT => BTC. They do, however, convert certain altcoins into BTC if you want.

@mocacinno

Since @XaeroQT is using Wordpress, wouldn't be easier for him to just install a WP plugin?
https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/bitcoin/

Without the skills and the time he could accept crypto payments without using a payment processor.

Well, those were the plugins i was talking about in earlyer posts... I see the plugin for bitpay and coinpayments in this overview Wink
The fact is that the OP will either:
  • need to use a payment processor
  • need to install a daemon
  • need a very competent dev to derive addresses from an xpub, then use one of the api's to check for funding transactions

And what do you have about Coinbase Commerce? Seems like a simple option

Never used them, but they're a wellknown name in the crypto universe... Just make sure you don't store your funds in an online wallet for a longer time... Withdraw from any of those payment gateway's online wallets regularly...

I would recommend you to go with popular options like Bitpay, I have used it to make payments as a consumer to other merchants but when it comes to the fact of accepting payment in crypto, I have shared my wallet address with my clients. However, I can understand that it is not possible every time when you don't have direct contact with the client so third-party services like Bitpay might be a good option.
