Payments Pro - [STRIPE] - Methods of payment - BitCoin
« on: February 24, 2017, 05:08:04 am »
Hi,
So I can see that some users (me included...lol) are being rejected by api.blockchain.info to get an API key
meaning we cannot accept BTC as payment option. Stripe has a new method of payment where you can use stripe
API to accept bitcoins.  Method of processing is the same from the script side, just have to use their updated wrappers.
(see- https://stripe.com/docs/bitcoin) Was wondering if it would be possible to add this to the OSClass Pro package?  It seems fairly trivial as
payment gateway is the same.  Please let me know your thoughts. As a note, I signed up, had my bitcoin account active in 5 mins with no hassles.

warm regards,
-Robert

That's a great idea, worth considering.

While we were developing the plugin, the bitcoin feature of Stripe wasn't available to everyone, and it wasn't working fine, so we decided not to include it. At the same time, blockchain.info didn't required an API key, so it was easier for everyone to just use blockchain.

Bitcoin payments via Stripe will be available in the next version of the plugin. We need to fix some issue with Paypal first, but it should be released soon.
