WHMCS is a popular software solution for web hosting management and billing which is used by hundreds of businesses around the world. WHMCS enables merchants to fully automate their operations and build a resilient infrastructure for their online stores. NOWPayments has developed a plugin for WHMCS merchants that lets them accept cryptocurrency as payment. The WHMCS crypto integration follows 5 simple steps and takes less than 10 minutes to deploy.
Advantages of WHMCS crypto plugin
The majority of crypto payments processing solutions require buying additional equipment such as terminals. NOWPayments understands the importance of simple and smooth integration and, therefore, our solutions are fully web-based. Merchants only need to install a WHMCS plugin, and once they do it, they will be ready to accept cryptocurrencies as payment.
NOWPayments does not charge its partners with large fees. Merchants using WHMCS plugins can pay as little as 0.4% off each transaction. Compared to bank fees, this is more than a bargain. Additionally, businesses do not need to pay for any subscription.
In order to open a bank account, a business needs to disclose private information about the owners and expose its financial data. NOWPayments respects the anonymity of merchants and does not ask for any authentication. WHMCS merchants can set up their payment gateway anonymously and avoid going through KYC procedures.
The WHMCS plugin from NOWPayments processes all payments automatically, which means that merchants do not need to be online 24/7 to authorize each crypto payment. Basically, the plugin minimizes any involvement of the merchant and lets them enjoy full automation. The only thing that the business has to do is now and then check their NOWPayments account to collect data on all payments.
