Why Is This Plugin For Free?

We believe that cryptocurrencies are the future and will provide a better, more democratic and more open form of money. With this Checkout Plugin, we want to provide a tool for everyone interested in crypto. By providing BTC and ETH payments together with NIM, we wish to support cryptocurrencies in general while illustrating just how much more easy and convenient Nimiq is.


This Nimiq payment gateway is based on skyverge’s WooCommerce Offline Gateway, which in turn forks the WooCommerce core “Cheque” payment gateway.
