This plugin requires WooCommerce. Please make sure you have WooCommerce installed.

To integrate BTCPay Server into an existing WooCommerce store, follow the steps below or check our official installation instructions.

1. Deploy BTCPay Server (optional)

This step is optional, if you already have a BTCPay Server instance setup you can skip to section 2. below. To launch your BTCPay server, you can self-host it, or use a third party host.

1.1 Self-hosted BTCPay

There are various ways to launch a self-hosted BTCPay. If you do not have technical knowledge, use the web-wizard method and follow the video below.

For the self-hosted solutions, you will have to wait for your node to sync fully before proceeding to step 3.

1.2 Third-party host

Those who want to test BTCPay out, or are okay with the limitations of a third-party hosting (dependency and privacy, as well as lack of some features) can use a one of many third-party hosts.

The video below shows you how to connect your store to such a host.

2. Install BTCPay WooCommerce Plugin

BTCPay WooCommerce plugin is a bridge between your BTCPay Server (payment processor) and your e-commerce store. No matter if you are using a self-hosted or third-party solution from step 1., the connection process is identical.

You can find detailed installation instructions on our WooCommerce documentation.

Here is a quick walk through if you prefer a video:

3. Connecting your wallet

No matter if you’re using self-hosted or server hosted by a third-party, the process of configuring your wallet is the same.

4. Testing the checkout

Making a small test-purchase from your own store, will give you a piece of mind. Always make sure that everything is set up correctly before going live. The final video, guides you through the steps of setting a gap limit in your Electrum wallet and testing the checkout process.

The plugin is actually quite good, but you get a nagging request for a review in your dashboard that keeps coming back. Since the last update it is finally possible to dismiss the request for reviews, which even kept showing after you gave a review.

Implementing the BTCPay Server plugin was a game-changer for us. BTCPay and the Woocommerce Plugin improved our backend efficiency but also enhanced the checkout process for our customers. The plugin’s integration was smooth, making Bitcoin transactions easier and helping us to stand out in the Bitcoin space with a very easy-to-use and recognizable checkout process.
