To enable your Launch Cart customers to pay with the cryptocurrency called Bitcoin (BTC), we recommend you set up and configure the payment method called OpenNode.

Here's how to enable Bitcoin payments via OpenNode:

Login to your Launch Cart store admin

Navigate to your Settings > Payments page.

Scroll down and find the OpenNode payment method and press "Connect and Enable"

You'll be asked to input a "Ecommerce API key" from your account. (Learn how to create an OpenNode Ecommerce API key)

After your input your OpenNode Ecommerce API Key, press "save"

That's it. You're done. Your Launch Cart store will now show an option on the checkout page for your customers to pay with Bitcoin.

How do I get an OpenNode Ecommerce key?

Sign in to your account or create a new account.

Once logged in, go to > Developers > Integrations, then click on "Enable" under Setup authentication.

Follow the instructions to setup two-factor authentication to enable your account to generate API keys. (Please note: If you've already done this, you can skip this step.

Once you've completed the steps to add two-factor authentication, you'll see new options in your account that will allow you to create APIs like this (below).

Click on "Generate Generate E-commerce key"

After generating your key, you'll see a popup that appears with your unique Ecommerce key. Copy this key and paste into Launch Cart.

You'll only need to generate a Ecommerce key once. This key will be used by Launch Cart to enable the OpenNode integration.

Do not delete this key from your account. If you do so, it will break your integration with Launch Cart, and your Launch Cart store won't work properly with OpenNode. To fix this, you'll need to generate a new Ecommerce key in OpenNode and replace it in Launch Cart. (See below)
