NowPayments is the easiest way to start accepting cryptocurrency on your website.
With an easy to integrate tools for merchant and system API of the NOWPayments allows you to start accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment on your website. The integration works with an easy native integration or a neat widget that’s as easy to use as the Internet you’re using daily. That being said, let’s zoom in a little more to see the several services that distinguish NOWPayments from their competitors.
Range of different Cryptocurrencies accepted
The most known currencies in the crypto-environment are Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. These are the biggest ones, the most trusted and those that most people that own cryptocurrencies will be holding. Thus it’s smart to accept these currencies as part of your payment options in your online store. If you are more convinced that other currencies, the so-called ‘alts’, are more future-proof and you would rather start stacking up on a precious alt, then NOWPayments has got you covered. NOWPayments offers a total of 27 cryptocurrencies as a form of payment. The options range from the biggest currencies to smaller cap alts and even stablecoins. If you want to enjoy the ease of cryptocurrencies but you don’t want to risk your coin losing its value, then a stablecoin would be the solution.
Auto Coin Conversion
As the merchant that’s convinced about the benefits of holding cryptocurrencies, you can pick your favorite. This would mean that you still allow your store to accept the several payment options in the 27 different currencies, yet in fact, you only accept one single one. Let’s say you’re a bitcoin maximalist and you only want to stack up on some satoshis, then the auto-coin conversion will be the right option for you. The moment a payment is made, the paid token will be transferred directly on a partner-exchange, ChangeNOW, into the desired currency. That could range from Bitcoin swapping for BNB, to GroestlCoin for Ripple. It’s all up to your preferences and wishes.
‘Not your keys, not your coins’ are words to live by in the cryptocurrency industry. Whether you have your coins stored on an exchange or a custodial party, if these people own your private keys, it means that eventually, they are the ones that own your currencies. That means that they could run off any minute with your beloved holdings. Doesn’t sound too good, does it? With the integrated non-custodial system that NOWPayments is using, the accepted payments are directly sent to a wallet that you own. The benefits here lay in the fact that we have never touched the coins that you accept, nor could we even if we wanted to. You own every single piece of the pie that gets accepted in your store, after the conversion rate or network fees. The fact that it’s a non-custodial system also means that it’s completely compliant with all legal parties across the globe. NOWPayments does not own anything, it’s simply a service that’s being offered as an addition to your already accepted payment services. We believe that your coins should be held behind your keys. Make sure you always live by these words and find a secure and easy way to store your keys so only you can access them.
What does this service cost me and how can I benefit?
The beauty of all this is that NowPayments is a zero-fee service. We do not charge anything for using our service. The only costs that would be present are the network costs for simply doing the transactions from one wallet to another. These costs are reliant on the load of the network and the state of the accepted coins. As the conversion to your desired currency is nearly instant, the fluctuation of the prices is neglectable and does not affect the amount you eventually end up receiving in your wallet.
Besides all the services for merchants, NOWPayments offers a royal affiliate program for all the cryptocurrency influencers and promoters out there. You can make $25 in NOW tokens for each merchant you onboard, plus you receive 0,2% of each transaction that is made for the rest of your life! That’s a generous promotion that affiliate heroes will not neglect. NOWPayments is ready for you, are you ready for NOWPayments?
