Note

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.

Info
titleCurrencies

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.
