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.
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.
|API Key||Enter the merchant account API Key.|
|Transaction Speed||Select your desired transaction speed. This determines how quickly an invoice, in Bitpay, will be considered 'confirmed'. High is instant; Medium is within 10 minutes; Low is within 1 hour. High is the most risky, low the least risky.|
