Apirone is a Payment Service Provider (PSP) for merchants accepting bitcoin.
Apirone is for merchants using a eCommerce solution such as WooCommerce, Virtuemart, Opencart and OcStore. For merchants without one of these eCommerce solution, they can use a RESTful API to create their own solution.
Unlike most Bitcoin payment gateway, Apirone does not charge a flat fee of 1% of the value of the sale. They only charge a fixed fee of 0.0002 BTC by transaction, regardless of the amount of the order.
The segregated protocol Segwit is supported. This is all the addresses, starting with "3" (P2SH-P2WPKH), or native address, starting with «bc1» (P2WPKH, Bech32). A Bitcoin blockchain explorer that support Segwit, the fourth of its kind, is also available on the website.
No registration needed to start using the extension and accepting bitcoin. No need to complete a KYC/Documentation too. Not converting bitcoin into fiat money does not entail the obligation to provide your personal information to the Banks.
Apirone was founded in September 2017 as a proof of concept.
In January 2018, the first plugin, for WooCommerce, was launched. Since march, two new plugins are available: Virtuemart and Open Cart.
In July, an Explorer frontend based on Angular is introduced on the website.
