Setting up BitPay

To set up your BitPay module, the first step will be to create a Business account on the platform:

For an easier set up of BitPay, we recommend you open 2 tabs on your browser: one tab with your BitPay dashboard, and another tab with your WiziShop administration area. On WiziShop (second tab), head onto your BitPay module: Settings > Manage my payment options > BitPay, and keep it open.

 

Go back to the first tab, and in the side menu of your BitPay dashboard, go to the Payment Tools > Integration Resources > API Tokens:

In the bottom right corner, click on Add New Token:

Give a name to your token (Wizishoptest or the name of your store), then click on Add Token:

The generated token is then displayed. In the Information category, copy that generated Token:

In your already opened WiziShop tab (second tab), paste the generated Token you have just copied:

Once your module is Under test (visible only to me), you just have to switch it to Active (visible to all):

☝️ Good to know:

  • Payments received in cryptocurrency are not instantaneous.
  • BitPay first performs a validation process that can take a few minutes.
  • The order will automatically go to "Pending Preparation" once the payment is received.

 

Finally, you will receive 3 emails notifying you of the customer's payment, the payment received and the final transaction confirmation.

 

N.B: Carrying out payments with other wallets such as Coinbase, Metamask, Trustwallet is also possible on the BitPay platform.
