About Bitpay

Bitpay is a leading payment gateway for accepting Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies such as Ethereum and Dogecoin. Learn more about Bitpay on their website at https://bitpay.com/.

Installing Bitpay

To install the Bitpay payment gateway, visit [Settings] > [Company] > [Payment Gateways] > Available, and click the "Install" button for Bitpay.

A message will be displayed, indicating that the payment gateway was successfully installed along with your pairing code.

In order to use this gateway you need to pair it with BitPay. To connect the gateway to BitPay, click the "Connect with BitPay" button, which will take you to BitPay and automatically pair the code.

After pairing, remember to click the "Update Settings" button to save the settings.

If the gateway was not able to automatically pair the code, you can manually pair it by following the steps below:

  • Login to your BitPay account
  • Navigate to the "Payment Tools" section within the sidebar.

  • Under the "Integration Resources" section, look for the "API Tokens" button.

  • In the "Approve Token" field, enter the pairing code generated by the gateway and click the "Find" button.

  • You will be asked to give the token a name; enter one and then click the "Approve" button.

The gateway has now been paired successfully; simply click the "Update Settings" button to save the changes.

The Transaction Speed has no effect on how quickly a payment is processed. Payment transactions are only approved in Blesta after the invoice (in Bitpay) has been set to 'completed', which is approximately an hour after receipt of payment.

Currencies

Note that you do not have to use BTC for your currency. Bitpay will do the currency conversion automatically and request payment in the appropriate amount of Bitcoin. This means you can use the same currency you normally accept.
