There are better and cheaper crypto payment gateways available in the market, which Shopify has not added to their payment vendor yet.
What it does
We have built a plugin based on ForgingBlock API to enable merchants from ForgingBlock can easily integrate to their Shopify stores.
How we built it
We built a customized PHP script that can be directly embedded into the last steps of check out page, so that merchant customers are still able to pay with crypto once they click the payment URL
Challenges we ran into
New to the Shopify API and want to explore the idea of directly communicating with the Shopify dashboard and sending proper notifications to the dashboard
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to figure out the way that enables third-party crypto payment API (ForgingBlock Payment API ) to work with Shopify users.
What we learned
Be Patient, and make it through
What's next for Shopify Crypto Payment Gateway
- Write generic SDKs allowing devs to easily integrate ForgingBlock API
- Decentralized NFT payment gateway - Enable NFT sellers directly sell NFT at Shopify store
- Make ForgingBlock as a decentralized payment backend node, to enable users/ and payment service provider to run the node by themselves
