Coinbase has released a new plugin to give millions of websites the power to accept major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
The plugin is designed to work with WooCommerce, which is an open-source platform that is currently integrated into more than three million WordPress websites, according to BuildWith.
“For merchants using WooCommerce, one of the most popular eCommerce platforms on the web, it’s now easier than ever to start accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of payment.
The widely-used plugin powers more than 28% of all online stores — and all of them now have access to cryptocurrency payments from customers around the world. This increased access will lead to more widespread adoption, and ultimately, moves us closer to our goal of an open financial system.”
Coinbase says it’s just getting started on its mission to make cryptocurrencies an easy payment option for the mainstream and is looking forward to feedback.
