Once you have integrated Bitfinex Pay into your website or store, your customer (the end user) will be able to select Bitfinex Pay as the payment processor to send funds to you in exchange for their selected product or service. This sending of funds can be done through the supported Bitfinex Pay payment methods.
What payment methods are available
Once your customer confirms a purchase on your website and selects Bitfinex Pay as the payment gateway, an ”Invoice” will be subsequently generated. The customer will then choose how they would prefer to make the payment from the three supported payment options provided:
- Pay with Bitfinex
- Pay with your Wallet
- Manual Payment
Pay with Bitfinex
Your customer will need to log in to their Bitfinex account and pay directly from Bitfinex.
1. Pay with Crypto: Your logged-in customer will be able to pay with their crypto funds on Bitfinex. This transaction will be almost instant and will have no additional fees for the user, as this transaction will not be broadcasted on the blockchain.
Note: Customers making crypto payments do not have to be Bitfinex users. If your customer is a Bitfinex user, they can log in via the Pay with Bitfinex button, and it will be considered as an internal transfer within Bitfinex; the transaction will not be broadcasted on the blockchain and will therefore also be faster than on-chain transactions.
- Pay with Credit Card: Your logged-in customer will be able to buy the amount of crypto required for the purchase with their credit card using one of our providers. Please view How to buy crypto on Bitfinex instantly for more information.
Note: Depending on the provider and token selected by the customer, the minimum amount to pay with a credit card may vary from $25 to $35 in equivalent.
Important: To pay with a credit card, the end user will need to verify their Bitfinex account to the Intermediate or higher level. Only non-corporate, individual accounts may use Credit Card Payments.
Pay with your Wallet
- WalletConnect: WalletConnect is a service that allows users to easily connect to their preferred wallets to complete payments with Bitfinex Pay. Users can choose from more than 100 wallets. You can find the complete list here.
Your customer will be able to choose WalletConnect after selecting the Pay with your Wallet option. Then, a QR code will be shown, which the user can scan from their preferred compatible wallet to link to Bitfinex Pay easily.
Note: Currently, WalletConnect is only compatible with ERC-20 tokens.
- Wallet integrations: Your customer will be able to connect to other wallets such as Metamask to pay directly.
Currently, only Metamask and WalletConnect are available, but we are working on adding more wallets and cold-wallets in the future.
Note: Currently, only ETH, MATIC (Ethereum), MATIC (Mainnet), EURt (Ethereum) and USDt (Ethereum) are compatible with Wallet payments.
Your customer will need to copy the address shown in the QR code and in the address box below, then paste it to their wallets and make a transaction. This can be done from any wallet or exchange with compatible Bitfinex Pay tokens.
Note: When using Manual Payments, it is very important that your customer sends the exact amount shown in the invoice. If the amount received is not exactly the same, the invoice might not detect the deposit and your customer will not see a Payment confirmation screen.
Please check the Mark as Complete feature in our guide Understanding the Bitfinex Pay Merchant Dashboard in order to understand how to link an invoice with an unlinked deposit.
