Accepting Payments on a Website: How Does It Work
Accepting cryptocurrency payments on a website is not much different from accepting traditional fiat currency payments, though there are unique considerations to keep in mind.
Consider a scenario: An item on your website is priced at 100 EUR. On that day, Bitcoin's exchange rate stands at 25,000 EUR per Bitcoin. A prospective buyer, intrigued by the prospect of utilizing their digital assets, decides to purchase the item using Bitcoin. They proceed to add the item to their cart and, during the checkout process, opt for the 'Crypto Payment' method. Based on the prevailing market rate, an invoice is promptly generated, indicating that the customer owes 0.004 BTC. Once this amount is transferred, your account reflects a credit of 0.004 BTC.
Plisio empowers merchants with the ability to curate their payment preferences. Through the dashboard settings, you can specify which cryptocurrencies and stablecoins you're open to accepting, allowing for a tailored e-commerce experience that aligns with your financial strategies and market insights. This flexibility ensures that you can maximize your revenue streams while catering to a diverse clientele in the evolving digital economy.
