Apirone is a Payment Service Provider (PSP) for merchants accepting bitcoin.

Merchant Tools[edit]

Apirone is for merchants using an eCommerce solution such as WooCommerce, Virtuemart, Opencart, OcStore and Magento2. For merchants without one of these eCommerce solutions, they can use a RESTful API to create their own solution.

Fees[edit]

Unlike most Bitcoin payment gateway, Apirone does not charge a flat fee of 1% of the value of the sale. They only charge a fixed fee of 0.0002 BTC by transaction, regardless of the amount of the order.

Segwit[edit]

The segregated protocol Segwit is supported. This is all the addresses, starting with "3" (P2SH-P2WPKH), or native address, starting with «bc1» (P2WPKH, Bech32). A Bitcoin blockchain explorer that support Segwit, the fourth of its kind, is also available on the website.

Registration[edit]

No registration needed to start using the extension and accepting bitcoin. No need to complete a KYC/Documentation too. Not converting bitcoin into fiat money does not entail the obligation to provide your personal information to the Banks.
