  • No chargebacks – guaranteed!


  • Extend your invoice expiration time (if payouts are in BTC).
  • Accept slight underpayments automatically.
  • Refunds can be issued directly from the invoice – without involvement of the seller.

How it works – example

  1. An item in the store costs 100 euro.
  2. A customer wants to buy the item and selects to pay with Bitcoin.
  3. An invoice is generated and, according to the current exchange rate, the price is 10,000 euro per bitcoin, so the customer has to pay 0.01 bitcoins.
  4. Once the invoice is paid, the merchant gets a notification and is credited 99 euro (100 euro minus our 1% flat fee), or 0.0099 BTC.

Plugin not working? Most common plugin issues

I been trying to get my account verified since July 2019. Its march 2021 now. Imagine how long this has took me to finally had it and leave a bad review. To get verified I had to sent in all my personal details, I did. Then they refused it since its all in dutch. I'm a dutch freelancer, not an internation multi milion dollar business. It cost me a lot of money to request all the official documents translated to english. Then still no verification. They keep making excuses not to verify. While I keep responding right away to their request. They take weeks sometimes months to reply. To the point today, I still cant refund my balance, I cant accept bitcoin anymore, And I lost all my BTC that are in my coingate account. DO NOT USE COINGATE

I used the Coingate plugin to accept bitcoin for the last years and it worked with little issues but now I can not withdraw my bitcoin, it is stuck in coingate and they do not reply with any update to my ticket opened about the issue in December 2020 and I provided all documents they asked. They said they are still checking documents but it should not take more than 2 months to check, my bitcoin is still stuck and caused me loss. I saw other coingate plugin users reported this similar issue and this plugin should probably be suspended from WordPress for causing harm and loss to users. For now removed the Coingate plugin due to the issue, and no new plugin updates for the last 2 years, I worry they are planning to exit scam with my thousands of dollars of bitcoin. Please someone at Coingate reply and either ask for more documents if you need or approve my withdraw request, thank you.
