CoinToPay.com is a service that offers a suite of cryptocurrency merchant tools allowing businesses to accept and process Titcoin payments. In addition, CoinToPay provides hosted cryptocurrency wallets, pays out in your currency of choice and supports customer credit card transactions.
Here is a list of key features provided by CoinToPay:
This guide will show you how to set up a very quick and easy checkout button using the CoinToPay service.
Pro-Tip: CoinToPay eliminates the need to manage your own Titcoin wallet address through their hosted wallet and payment services. However, if you do need a personal Titcoin deposit address for yourself, you will need to set up a Local, Online or Paper wallet. Please read the above guides for setting up a Titcoin wallet before continuing.
Step 1: Registration
To accept Titcoin payments for your business, you will need to register and create an account with CoinToPay. Visit their Website and scroll down to their Registration form to create an account.
You Wallet Name is the name of your business that you want to display on your Checkout screen. You can change this at any time in your account settings.
Your Nick Name is your private Username that you use to log into the CoinToPay website. This you cannot change once you create an account.
Make sure Titcoin TIT is highlighted which will automatically enable your Titcoin wallet and allow you to accept Titcoin payments.
Finally, select Secure Cloud as your desired service. This is the easiest way to get started with little configuration.
Pro-Tip: You can also enable a variety of other cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin) with your account. There is an account setting called Wallet Preference that allows you to turn on/off different cryptocurrencies in your account.
Step 2: Dashboard
After you create your account and login, you will be taken to your merchant wallet dashboard. This is where you can track all of your incoming Titcoin (and other cryptocurrency) transactions and payments. You can always access your dashboard by clicking the “Wallet” link in the main navigation.
Pro-Tip: The coin logos at the top of your dashboard indicate all of the cryptocurrencies you are able to accept into your merchant wallet. You can easily add or remove a cryptocurrency by going into your account settings.
Step 3: Account Settings
The account settings page is where you can obtain the HTML codes to set up a Titcoin checkout process on your website. In the main navigation, click on the “Account” option.
You will be taken to a page that lists a variety of settings and options for you to configure as needed. To quickly set up a buy now or donation checkout button, open the setting called “Generate HTML scripts for website.”
Pro-Tip: The “Payment URLs” setting allow you to identify a customized Payment Confirmation and Payment Failed page on your website. This is optional and set to a generic page hosted by CoinToPay by default.
Step 4: Implementation
Copy and paste the appropriate HTML code into your website depending on whether you want a simple checkout button or a checkout form.
You only need to make a few modifications to the code to customize it for your website. Below are examples of how easy it is to implement Titcoin payments on your site.
Example 1: Buy Now and Donation Checkout Buttons
Checkout buttons are useful for single item purchases such as subscriptions or donations. This will allow you to set a fixed Titcoin price for a single item or service and allow your customers to pay for it in a single click.
To set up a checkout button similar to above, copy and paste the following HTML code:
<a href=”https://cointopay.com/MerchantAPI?Checkout=true&MerchantID=403&Amount=20000.000&AltCoinID=17&CustomerReferenceNr=Checkout-TitCoin&SecurityCode=357146512“><img src=”https://cointopay.com/img/cointopay_titcoincheckout.png”></a>
In this example, the only values you need to update in red are your Merchant ID, Titcoin Amount, Reference and Security Code. If you copy and paste this code directly from your account settings page, all of the values will already be configured for your merchant wallet.
Pro-Tip: You might want to consider dynamically setting your price to your currency of choice (e.g. US Dollars). This way, your customers will be charged the appropriate amount of Titcoins that equals your fiat price based on current market value. You can do this by connecting your website to several APIs that provide real-time fiat prices of Titcoin. We recommend using the CoinWarz.com API to retrieve this value.
Example 2: Checkout Form
Checkout forms provide additional flexibility to integrate Titcoin payments into an existing shopping cart platform. This option allows you to specify the payment amount in your currency of choice, and the checkout page automatically calculates how many Titcoins a customer needs to send based on current market value.
This is particularly useful if you have a shopping cart that supports multiple products and shipping fees that require an aggregated sum total for the customer to pay. This can also be used for donation pages that allow fans to manually enter a customized donation amount.
Basic Checkout Button Example
Awesome Product ABC: $9.95
Awesome Product XYZ: $19.95
To set up a checkout button similar to above, copy and paste the following HTML code with your own customization:
<form method=”post” action=”https://cointopay.com/MerchantAPI” target=”_blank”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”Checkout” value=”true”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”MerchantID” value=”403“>
<input type=”hidden” name=”SecurityCode” value=”357146512“>
<input type=”hidden” name=”CustomerReferenceNr” value=”ProductID“>
<option value=”17″>TitCoin TIT</option>
<input type=”hidden” name=”inputCurrency” value=”USD”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”Amount” value=”29.90“><BR>
<input type=”image” src=”http://cointopay.com/img/cointopay_titcoincheckout.png” alt=”Pay with Titcoins”>
In this example, the only values you need to update in red are your Merchant ID, Reference, Security Code and Price. If you copy and paste this code directly from your account settings page, all of the values will already be configured for your merchant wallet.
Pro-Tip: If you’re familiar with basic HTML, you can easily customize the above form to suit the needs of your website so long as the appropriate variables are sent to the CoinToPay server. You can essentially hide all of the form fields and have the price dynamically set based on the sum total in a shopping cart.
