Use the BitPay mark graphic to communicate that BitPay is an available payment option when showing other payment options in a similar manner.
You may also find it useful to display the supported currencies alongside the BitPay mark.
1. Collect buyer information
Ask for optional information before checkout begins.
- To ensure a smooth checkout process, collect necessary information, like color and size options, before people reach the Pay Now button.
- When you need additional information from the user at checkout time—perhaps because the user forgot to choose an option—gracefully point out the problem and help them correct it.
- Use highlighting or warning text to identify missing information, and automatically navigate to the problematic field so the user can quickly correct it and complete their purchase.
- The BitPay invoice only asks for the buyer email. Collect optional information such as promo or redemption codes, gift messages, and delivery instructions ahead of time or after the purchase is complete.
- We highly recommended that you include the email of the buyer as part of the
buyerFields.buyerEmail field when creating the invoice via the BitPay API.
- BitPay will use the
buyerEmail field to contact the buyer in the case of an underpayment or overpayment in order to administer a refund.
- If you do not provide the
buyerEmail field, BitPay will prompt the user for an email address when the modal opens.
2. Select payment method
When using a radio button selector to choose payment method from a list, always display the BitPay logo along with the text “BitPay” as an option to pay with cryptocurrency.
Display the currency mark image when accepting multiple BitPay supported currencies.
3. Displaying button to view invoice (Payment Button)
- After the user has chosen BitPay as a payment method, the following button should be used to view the BitPay invoice.
- You can generate payment buttons on the merchant dashboard and embedded anywhere on your website, with no additional setup required.
- You should use this format regardless if the invoice displays as a modal, opens in a new tab, or display as an iframe.
- Ensure the checkout button matches the width and height of your standard checkout button.
