API Functionality

How it works - example

  1. An item in the store costs 100 euro. A customer wants to buy the item and selects to pay with Bitcoin or Altcoins via CoinGate.
  2. An order is generated on your Magento store, and the customer is redirected to our payment page.
  3. The price on the invoice is calculated in real-time according to the current market rate - for example, 0.1 bitcoins.
  4. Using his Bitcoin wallet, the customer makes the payment, receives confirmation immediately, and is returned to your store.
  5. Once the invoice is paid, the merchant gets a notification and is credited 99 euro (100 euro minus our 1% flat fee), or 0.099 BTC. The payment is guaranteed and cannot be charged back.
