Customization and ease is important for an ecommerce shop owner. With the Bitcoin Payment Widget you can create your own widgets and customized Bitcoin payment solutions. What is a payment widget and how does it compare to payment buttons or links? When should you use them?

The Payment screen will appear as a popup on the page. This allows for simple creation, but there’s a non-disruptive payment screen in the same page. This can be a problem if requiring customers to enter in info from a checkout cart.

The payment screen opens in a new tab. This is very simple to set up and add, but is more intrusive to customers, having to switch between tabs. This is however very useful to share in social networks/chat where you don’t necessarily have a website.

The payment screen is embedded in the same page, making it seamless with the checkout process. It allows full customization as HTML allows, and matches your brand.
