Zen Cart & Cryptocurrencies

Zen Cart is shopping cart software that is preferred by thousands of merchants worldwide. It is open-source and user-friendly and allows easy integration of many Zen Cart plugins to set an optimal Zen Cart payment gateway.

With most of the gateways accepting Visa and MasterCard, there is one other solution for Zen Cart e-commerce that adds up to the traditional means of payment. It allows you to reach out to new customers who are somewhat skeptical about traditional paying methods and Zen Cart payment modules.

These customers hold cryptocurrency and are extremely grateful to every Zen Cart online shop that is accepting crypto. This gives them the opportunity to focus on crypto payments as opposed to using the traditional methods.

Install the NOWPayments Zen Cart Bitcoin plugin and get new customers who are willing to pay in crypto. This Zen Cart integration takes minutes to install and will bring you lots of new profits in return. Of course, you can use our plugin in addition to the other Zen Cart modules that accept traditional money.
