What is the The Sandbox?
As mentioned above, SAND is the native token of The Sandbox, which constitutes a new milestone in the crypto world, a full-blown metaverse backed by cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The Sandbox allows people around the world to play and create numerous games on its platform. SAND is the asset that is essential for playing on The Sandbox. For instance, SAND is used to buy land in the game, as well as to create in-game objects, which then can be sold for more SAND. Basically, the SAND currency is what fuels the economy of The Sandbox ecosystem and drives it forward.
Benefits of accepting The Sandbox on e-commerce plugins
Today, online merchants, just like cryptocurrencies, need to distinguish themselves from the rest by offering exclusive features to clients. Featuring SAND as a payment method can be exactly the thing capable of attracting new customers. So, if you own a store on PrestaShop, WooCommerce, Magento 2, WHMCS, OpenCart, Zen Cart, Shopify, or Shopware, consider adding a SAND payment gateway to your checkout.
NOWPayments is a service that values its partners and understands that merchants need to spend as little as possible on fees and other expenses which eat into their profits. That is why NOWPayments’ fees are among the lowest in the industry. Basically, merchants that use eCommerce plugins have to pay only a small percent (starting from 0.4%) off each transaction processed by NOWPayments.
The plugins developed by NOWPayments process all transactions automatically. Therefore, there is no need for the merchant to send their blockchain address personally to each customer wanting to pay in crypto. Nevertheless, they can always set up free notifications which will update them on each payment sent by their customers.
Since NOWPayments is a non-custodial service, the crypto our partners receive through plugins gets sent straight to their wallets. NOWPayments does not store the funds of its partners and guarantees instant payouts. As a result, the time period between the moment of the merchant’s customer making payment and the merchant receiving it can take less than a minute.
