In the past few years, there has been a huge surge in the adoption of cryptocurrencies. People are increasingly buying Bitcoin and other virtual currencies for different purposes, one of them being to pay for the things they shop online. If you’ve set up an online store using WooCommerce, you can provide a satisfactory experience to such consumers courtesy of Aurpay.
Aurpay is a global blockchain technology company that offers an innovative crypto payment plugin for WordPress. It’s designed to empower WooCommerce businesses of all sizes to accept secure cross-border crypto payments.
But is it easy to set up and use? What’s the processing fee for each transaction? Do I have control over the funds received?
In this detailed Aurpay Payments review, you’ll find the answers to these questions and witness the full capability of the plugin.
Aurpay Payments Overview
Aurpay offers a crypto payment gateway that you can access through its advanced API or official platform. The plugin makes it simple to provide cryptocurrency as a payment option, which should help attract more customers to your business. It can even add a unique touch to your marketing—your social media and PR campaigns can include the fact that you’re one of the few coveted stores to accept cryptocurrencies.
Aurpay has some unique competitive advantages over both standard payment providers (PayPal, Stripe, etc.) and crypto payment gateways (bitpay, OpenNote, Coinbase Commerce, etc.):
- It can help you save up to 96% gas fees for settlement and receive near instant payment.
- The processing fees are transparent and much lower than what most gateways charge: it can even go lower than 1% (maybe 0.5%, depending on Aurpay’s promotion). To help you compare, most crypto payment gateways charge a processing fee of around 1%, whereas PayPal charges 2.9% + $0.3 per transaction.
- Aurpay has an innovative Smart contract feature that allows for 100% non-custodial funds control. In layman’s terms, it doesn’t hold your funds or private keys, so you have full authority over the received payment. (FYI: most crypto exchanges actually control your money since they hold your keys, and the only way to safeguard your assets is to keep them on-chain and in a non-custodial wallet).
- The plugin offers a beautiful checkout design and easy QR code scanning, which generates a much higher conversion rate than competitors.
