Customer journey

  1. The customer is adding items to his shopping card and proceeds to checkout – the total amount is $100 USD.
  2. The customer selects BitPay as checkout method.
  3. A BitPay invoice is generated, the customer selects one of the supported cryptocurrency to complete the payment. The invoice will display an amount to pay in the selected cryptocurrency, at an exchange rate locked for 15 minutes.
  4. The customer completes the payment using a compatible wallet within the 15 min window.
  5. Once the transaction is fully confirmed on the blockchain, BitPay notifies the merchant and the corresponding amount is credited to the BitPay merchant account minus our 1% processing fee – thus $99 USD in this example.
