Today’s article is going to be talking about how to accept Verge coin (XVG) with the help of NOWPayments

Why exactly Verge? 

Well, we think it is quite the coin to keep an eye on! It originated all the way back in 2014, as a fork of the legendary memecoin DOGE, under the name of DogeCoin Dark, which later got rebranded into Verge. Ever since the moment of creation, the coin’s main value and goal was maximum privacy for its users. 

Verge transactions can be performed without disguising your IP, which leads to showing your location and identity. With Verge, your transactions are fast, reliable and 100% private, thanks to their unique Wraith Protocol.

NOWPayments is happy to be partners with Verge, as we share the security values by being non-custodial! We don’t hold any of the money transmitted though our service and also don’t display the merchant’s recipient wallet address to anyone but him, but he can also always switch the address in case of any concerns. Integrating NOWPayments is very easy, you can start accepting XVG fee-free in just a couple of steps! 

Let’s look into the NOWpayments integration process: 

API

  4. Go to the ‘Store settings tab’ and press “Add a new key”;

WooCommerse Plugin

You can also accept cryptos using our WooCommerse plugin! It allows your web stores built on WordPress to accept payments in 35 popular cryptos! The list is growing weekly.
