XRP can now be received by WordPress users
Written by Urban on January 11, 2019
The crypto world is enabling crypto users to use, buy and receive cryptocurrencies in various places like a supermarket and online shopping. Likewise, Bitvolo Trustless Crypto Payment Gateway has added a plugin that enables the bloggers to receive payments in cryptocurrencies.
The gateway works on the decentralized nature of the blockchain and supports IOTA, Stellar [XLM], XRP, and Nano. The plugin also supports SEPA bank transfers. This plugin also ensures that the bloggers don’t have to pay any commision on credit payments which can be as high as 5 percent of the total amount, reported Blockchain reporter.
This plugin charges a fee of CHF 0.05 per transaction and allows conversion of fiat currencies into digital currencies. The fiat currencies that are enabled by the plugin are USD, EUR, and CHF. The bloggers using the plugin do not even have to worry about maintenance and technical issues as the plugin operates its own blockchain nodes
In a similar attempt, programmers Dan Darden, Laszlo, and Lacicloud, have managed to develop a plugin for WordPress through which bloggers can accept payments in MIOTA for their website. The trio named their plug-in as PayIOTA.me.
The plugin is compatible with WordPress security ass-on, WordFence. WordFence is widely used amongst bloggers using WordPress as it prevents their website from hackers and spams. The publication quoted a post with regards to PayIOTA’s compatibility with WordFence that read:
“The IPN triggers a rule in WordFence. There is an untested compatibility patch, but you must whitelist PayIOTA.me (either IPV4 + IPV6 or domain) in WordFence. If you can remove the ‘POST without User-Agent/Referer’ rule or disable ‘WordFence advanced blocking’, which works too.”
The plugin also allows the invoices to last for one-week maximum and if the user wishes to update their inventory after a week, they can use the “update” API call.
