How to start accepting cryptocurrency

ATTENTION!

In order to stay compliant with our strategic credit card processing partners' policies and due to recently tightened regulations on the cryptocurrency circulation for the US-based companies, we are going to halt all support for cryptocurrency payments on this site for the time being.

Setting up

For you as a Star to be able accept payments in more than 50 cryptocurrencies, the following has to be done:

  1. You need to create CoinGate API credentials that are assigned to your SubscribeStar profile. To do so, create account on CoinGate.com.
  2. Then log in to your CoinGate account and create a New App.
    In the field "Integration URL or Description" enter your SubscribeStar profile page address
    After submitting the form you will be assigned an Access Token that you need to write down and save somewhere safe - you will need it later. DO NOT USE THE THE PROVIDED ACCESS TOKEN ANYWHERE ELSE, ONLY SUBSCRIBESTAR!
    OTHERWISE COINGATE MAY SUSPEND YOUR ACCOUNT.
  3. Log in to your existing SubscribeStar account and proceed to Cryptocurrency section of your Payouts page. Click "Connect CoinGate" blue button in Accept Cryptocurrency subsection of this page. In the opened popup you will be prompted to enter App Token - this is where you enter previously Access Token assigned to you. Just copy-paste it here, and press "Finish Integration" button to finalize the process.
  4. This will add a "Pay with Cryptocurrency" option to your subscription form. While having this payment option, the Subscriber will still be able to pay with credit card, if he chooses to do so.

Withdrawal

You won't be charged any fees on these transactions by our platform. Please, consider supporting SubscribeStar by donating whatever amount you feel is appropriate.

Coingate defines the fees for you and essentially replaces SubscribeStar as a payroll service. The list of cryptocurrency payments made into your account can be found here.

The transaction / withdrawal fees are also defined by CoinGate and could be a subject to change. All the necessary information can be found on their official website. The information on this page may not be up to date, please refer to the CoinGate website as a primary source.
