What is the minimum payment amount?
The minimum payment amount is the minimal sum that your customer can pay you at a given moment. Currently, it’s about $2 for one half of the coins that we support and about $3-5 for another.
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 70 cryptocurrencies, there are hundreds of such crypto pairs possible. And at a certain moment, the minimum payment amount for each pair can be slightly (very slightly!) different. This depends on the market situation and the current network fee size.
If you work with cryptocurrency payments below $5, consider using our API to check the minimum cryptocurrency payment size live. Find the detailed instructions here in the “Get the minimum payment amount” section. Here’s how it looks:
