How to Sell Anything for Bitcoin

Dec 12, 2022

It's not hard to sell products online in exchange for Bitcoin. Many solutions make it easy to accept crypto payments and even set up a merchant account with a crypto wallet.

If you're a business, or just someone looking into selling products online in exchange for Bitcoin, now is the best time to get involved. There are so many ways to start accepting crypto payments - and it doesn’t matter how big or small your business is. Here's how you can do it.

Before you sign up for a crypto payment provider, the first step is deciding what you are going to sell. Do you already have products or services you’d like to sell (or are already selling) or do you want to think about starting a new business that sells something specific? Look around and decide what you have that can be sold, or think about what you want to sell… and of course, have some ideas about how much you want to charge for your products/services. 

Consider the payment options available to you - maybe you are already selling things and have some of the more traditional payment options. Accepting crypto payments is easier than ever before. It used to be that only large companies could do it, but now it's common for even small businesses and individuals to start accepting crypto payments.

One of the most popular ways to accept crypto payments is through an e-commerce platform like Shopify. These platforms enable merchants to accept cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin through a simple integration process. Shopify has already partnered with CoinPayments, BitPay, and Coinbase Commerce, allowing any vendor to accept Bitcoin payments. It’s that easy!

You can also use third-party platforms like CoinGate or BitPay Merchant Solutions if you don't want to build your website from scratch.

Using BitPay

BitPay is an excellent way to accept Bitcoin payments through your website or mobile app. It's easy to use and even easier to integrate with other payment options, like Stripe and Braintree. BitPay also offers various other services, including Bitcoin storage and merchant tools. 

Using CoinGate

CoinGate allows you to accept Bitcoin directly via your website without having to go through an intermediary like BitPay or Coinbase. They handle all the details so you don't have to worry about anything — just make sure you have SSL enabled on traffic-heavy pages like checkout forms or contact pages, and then send a request through their API or their webhooks integration.

Using Pay Merchant is one of the fastest-growing payment gateways in the world with over 50 million users. This solution allows merchants to easily send invoices, manage payments, and receive crypto as payment.

No matter what payment gateway you use, as a business owner, it’s important not to get left behind with the changing tides of technology. These simple solutions we have spoken about allow normal businesses to tap into the crypto market and allow a subset of customers who want to pay with cryptocurrencies the opportunity to buy goods with digital currencies.
