Meet the easiest way to accept cryptocurrency on your Magento 2 website. With the Firebear ShapeShift Magento 2 extension, you will essentially increase your current ecommerce opportunities related to altcoins. While in case of the CoinPayments module you can accept more than 70 altcoins, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, the ShapeShift plugin adds literally endless opportunities. In terms of ecommerce, the service operates on the basis of a selected coin (for instance, Bitcoin), allowing you accept any cryptocurrency rapidly converting it into this coin.
- Magento 2 cryptocurrency integration: accept any cryptocurrency as payment for goods and services you offer;
- No registration is required, but you need an existing Bitcoin wallet to accept payments;
- The fastest and the safest way to accept all altcoins on the basis of Magento 2;
- Very fast and user-friendly integration and configuration.
The Magento 2 ShapeShift extension dramatically improves the default shopping experience of your customers. The module adds a new payment method to the checkout page - Shape Shift Payment. As a result, customers only need to specify the altcoin they want to use to place the order. In addition, it is possible to type a return address to enable further refund.
Next, there is the ‘Place Order’ button that continues the procedure and redirects a customer to a new screen, where a deposit address and a required amount of altcoins are specified.
Note that additional order details are sent to a customer by email. As a merchant, receive a new payment and send all ordered items to a customer.
From the admin side, the configuration of the ShapeShift Magento 2 extension is also extremely easy. In the backend, go to Stores -> Settings -> Configuration -> Sales -> Payment Methods -> Other Payment Methods and select Shape Shift Payment. Enable the extension and select the cryptocurrency you want to accept. Note that the ShapeShift Magento 2 module is not limited to one type of altcoins, so you can use any crypto instead of aforementioned Bitcoin. Next, it is necessary to specify a deposit address of the wallet related to the selected coin type.
Select a paid order status, enable/disable debug, and choose a payment action.
Next, specify countries to enable the new payment method to and set its priority among other payment methods.
The ability to accept any cryptocurrency is no longer a dream and you can implement the new payment method on your Magento 2 website in a very unobtrusive way. To emphasise the functionality of the ShapeShift Magento 2 extension, we should compare it with the CoinPayments Magento 2 plugin. While CoinPayments has a more user-friendly interface, it adds several additional steps to the checkout procedure that must be completed outside the Magento 2 store, but the interface is customer oriented, so your clients will easily complete the purchase. At the same time, you get a wallet for storing supported cryptocurrencies, as well as get the ability to withdraw fiat currencies (the commission is 0.5%).
In its turn ShapeShift doesn't provide neither wallets, nor the ability to withdraw fiat, but you can accept crypto right after the extension is installed (a third-party wallet is required), since no registration is needed. And there is no limitation in terms of supported altcoins: your customers can pay with the preferable one that will be converted into a crypto that you specify in settings. For further information, see the manual or contact the support.
