Wix users can add cryptocurrency payment methods to their checkout page using CoinGate payments solution.

CoinGate app adds Bitcoin and 70+ cryptocurrency payment options, allowing crypto-friendly customers to pay for goods or services in the way that’s most convenient for them. 

The app allows merchants to collect funds and receive payouts in a single transaction and currency that they prefer, including Bitcoin, USDT, EUR, GBP, USD, and more. 

Wix users in Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands and Spain can now connect CoinGate as a payment provider and start accepting cryptocurrencies.
