Accept Ethereum on your Website
Let your customers pay with ETH. Get Euro payouts or convert to Bitcoin.
Ethereum is a blockchain application platform that enables users to develop decentralized applications, which include smart contracts and blockchains. Ethereum is associated with a cryptocurrency called Ether(ETH), which was generated during the initial crowdsale that kickstarted the project.
To enable individuals and organizations to create smart contracts, Ethereum uses a programming language called Solidity. Virtually anyone can learn this language and use it to build new cryptocurrencies, digital assets, decentralized organizations, or just to crowdfund their latest project.
This flexibility and versatility have enabled Ethereum to attract thousands of developers to their platforms. Many notable cryptocurrencies are based on Ethereum, and the platform itself is continually being updated, as evidenced by the numerous and regular updates on their GitHub.

How to accept Ethereum payments on your website?
CoinGate makes it easy to receive customer payments in most popular cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum. To make it simple for merchants, all received payments are automatically settled to EUR/USD or to BTC, depending on your preference.
To integrate our payment gateway on your website, choose either:
- One of CoinGate ready-made integrations for e-commerce content management systems or web billing platforms (like WooCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, OpenCart, WHMCS and similar)
- Developer API that can be configured for any website and different codebases (e.g. Ruby, PHP, Omnipay, Python, NodeJS...)
- Payment buttons for accepting donations or simple payments (for example, if you only sell one or several products)
To get started with accepting Ethereum as well as Bitcoin, Litecoin and other coins, first, sign up with CoinGate. Then, create API credentials if you are planning to use our e-commerce plugins or the API; if not, go ahead and create your first payment button.
If you wish to keep all your received payments in cryptocurrency (i.e. to receive payouts in Bitcoin), then no verification is usually needed to use CoinGate. For Euro or U.S. Dollar settlements, you will have to pass our simple merchant verification procedure by uploading your business documents and director's ID.
