How to integrate cryptocurrency payments via Payment Button on your website

Make cryptocurrency payments easy and safe for your business!

ALFAcoins Payment Button allows you to integrate cryptocurrency payments on your website, online shop, internet business, etc. Choose this option when you need to accept donations or you own a shop with a small number of goods.

You can accept payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dash, and XRP. Now, for each selling item, you need to create and configure a new button. If you have a large amount of selling goods, you should use our API.

This guide will help you to integrate cryptocurrency support via the Payment Button on your website. Just follow the steps below.

In the first place, access your account at ALFAcoins.com or register a new account (if you don’t have one yet).
