In checkout you can now pay with bitcoin and not deal with any 3rd party crypto processors. Most integrated crypto payments are shown from a 3rd party. These processors allow merchants to host an invoice in check out and show you a QR code and the amount needed to send.
After being shutdown from coinpayments in 2017 for using this service we were determined to find a better way. We were shutdown because we sold kratom which is absolutely ridiculous. You would think a company that is hosting a service using a decentralize crypto currency would not act like a USA Bank.
So we now host our own processing option. We host the server and the software is free open source that runs bitcoin and bitcoin lightning node. We also integrated an open source plugin for magento 2 into checkout that connects to our node.
We have an option to pay with the top crypto's using a coin switch process. You can send ETH and we get the equivalent in Bitcoin.
There is also an option to send lightning payment. We have many open channels in and out with other lightning nodes. The lightning node is ran on TOR for increased privacy.
