What is Shopify? What are Shopify plugins?
Shopify is an ecommerce platform where business-owners can sell their products or services. The number of Shopify merchants exceeds 1,000,000 businesses in 175 different countries.
Shopify offers a whole range of services, including various payment options. They can be accessed via public and private Shopify apps.
The Shopify crypto payments plugin by NOWPayments is a private app (for now) that can be added as an alternative, manual payment method by any Shopify store owner, which will enable them to explore a whole new payment experience.
Why Accept Crypto Payments
Crypto payments are a viable and innovative alternative to traditional methods and are now being adopted by prominent companies and projects such as Tesla (accepting Bitcoin payments in the US) or NBA Sacramento Kings (announcing they are willing to pay their players’ salaries in Bitcoin).
In short, payments with crypto offer a lot of benefits such as:
- Lower fees – when compared to the traditional methods, such as Visa or PayPal, which tend to have additional fees and fees for international transactions, crypto fees can be extremely low. NOWPayments pricing is a 0,5% transaction fee plus a 0,5% exchange fee (if exchange is needed).
- Global reach – crypto is international and there are no additional fees
- Privacy and security – blockchain technology is all about your safety, and there are cryptocurrencies made to be secure and private (privacy coins).
- A vast array of currencies – NOWPayments offers auto coin conversion and you can also explore stablecoins if you want to avoid volatility.
