What is the minimum payment amount?

The minimum payment amount is the minimal sum that your customer can pay you at a given moment. Among the coins that we support there are some with the minimum amount less than $2.

What does the minimum amount for crypto payments depend on?

Let’s say you’ve set your Bitcoin address as your outcome wallet. A customer makes a Bitcoin payment through NOWPayments crypto payment gateway — Bitcoin goes right to your wallet without any swaps.

What if you have the same outcome wallet, but your customer decides to pay with Ethereum? Our crypto payment processor swaps this ETH to BTC through a ChangeNOW exchange service and you receive Bitcoin.

Since we accept crypto payments in over 130 cryptocurrencies, there are hundreds of such crypto pairs possible. And at a certain moment, the minimum payment amount for each pair can be slightly different. This depends on the market situation and the current network fee size.

Where can I check the minimum amount?

The easiest way to check the minimum amount for a particular pay is to visit our Status Page. Here you can choose a pay currency in which funds will be paid (“From”) and a currency of your outcome wallet (“To”) - the minimum amount will be calculated in a second.
