WordPress Crypto Plugins

The simplicity and flexibility of WordPress has made it a preferred platform for many young companies looking to build their own websites. Those relying on crypto income, however, need to install a plugin that supports cryptocurrency payments.

There are many available options, one of which is My Crypto Checkout. The plugin allows online stores to receive direct payments in over 30 cryptocurrencies in peer-to-peer transactions with a zero percent fee. Under a free license, MCC processes up to three sales per month but the paid subscription comes with unlimited transactions for $59 a year.

Once it’s downloaded from the Plugins page in the WordPress dashboard and activated, one or more cryptos have to be set up in the Currencies tab. As the software supports Woocommerce and Easy Digital Downloads, the payment gateway settings for the preferred platform need to be adjusted too.

Other websites may want to keep their users informed about crypto prices. A simple solution is provided by the Cryptocurrency Price Widget, which comes with real-time price updates for over 3,600 coins and 160 fiat currencies. It can be downloaded and installed from Add New in the Plugins page.

Bitcoin.com offers widgets that update website visitors about the price movements of bitcoin cash (BCH). They also enable websites to receive the latest news from the crypto space via a news ticker. Find out how to install them by visiting the Bitcoin Widgets page.
