Despite the value of Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies see-sawing amid the backlash from the South Korean authorities, the amount of progress in the whole industry is tremendous. And nothing melts the heart of a crypto-enthusiast looking to receive payments in their store than BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin.
It’s not clear whether it is the first of its kind, but we can all agree is, this plugin is a complete game-changer in the e-commerce sector!
What is BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin for RaiBlocks (XRB)?
Perhaps you are wondering what all this frenzy about BrainBlocks is. You rightly have a reason to question because just as the same says, it is a plugin that lets you pay for items online with RaiBlocks (XRB) coins instead of PayPal or Credit Cards. Essentially, it is a fast, FREE and super-easy RaiBlocks payment gateway, installable on your e-commerce store the same way as you did with PayPal or any other conventional payment gateway.
BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin isn’t another half-baked, inferior plugin. Instead, it is a trustworthy “fully-fledged WordPress plugin” already published and free to download. Also, it is reasonably straightforward to install manually with FTP or scp. Once installed, it will be available on the checkouts page of your online store, and that’s it!
How to Install BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin into Your WordPress
Installing it is pretty straightforward, and it can take you a little less than five minutes before the plugin becomes operational. To install it, you simply visit and download it from its official GitHub page. Thereafter, head to your WordPress and install it by:
Clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/brainblocks/woocommerce-brainblocks.git
woocommerce-gateway-brainblocks directory to your wp-content/plugins directory:
rsync -r woocommerce-gateway-brainblocks [email protected]:/usr/share/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/
plugin, configure it with your receiving RaiBlocks address and get started
Currencies Supported by BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin
It is exciting that the plugin supports a wide range of currencies, including US Dollars, Euro, Australian dollar, Pound, Canadian Dollar, Japanese Yen, and New Zealand Dollar, as well as, Php, Sek, Krw, Ils, Rub, Zar and many more. If your store uses any of the supported currencies, of course, it is a great advantage. The use enters the amount to be paid, and then the BrainBlocks button automatically converts the specified value into RaiBlocks immediately.
Upon pressing the “Send” button and the “Green Tick” of a successful transaction is shown, the payment is processed in microseconds. The receiver’s RaiBlocks wallet will show funds received. But what’s glamorous about it as the payment getaway is, the customer is refunded back excess coins paid automatically – it will never take an excess of what you are sending!
Without a doubt, everyone is excited about this BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin, and the reason isn’t a wild guess. At the https://github.com/brainblocks page, you will notice a few iOS repos (https://github.com/brainblocks/brainblocks-ios-sdk). It is incredible stuff that would enable anyone to smoothly integrate a version of the plugin that’s 100% functional into mobile apps. It is a work-in-progress per se, but then again it is another perfect reason to be excited about it!
Just to wrap this up, the RaiBlocks node’s RPC protocol appears relatively mature while the protocol itself is simple with without a mechanism to neither automatically reject payment nor capture timestamps on transactions. Everything aside, BrainBlocks WooCommerce Plugin is another high!
