General payment functions:
On the website and in the payment process the price is displayed – in the demanded currency and in Bitcoin. After purchases Coinsnap transfers the sales price to the merchant's bank account without any currency conversion losses, and Bitcoin transactions direct to an internal or private merchant wallet are also possible. For administration and analysis, all processes can be viewed in detail on the Dashboard and evaluated statistically.
Additional functions for customer credit accounts:
Online services which are working with credits for billing can use additional functions. Instead of a price a credit value is displayed on the website and in the payment process – in the desired currency and in Bitcoin. After the purchase Coinsnap transfers the amount without foreign exchange losses to the internal currency wallet or internal Bitcoin wallet of the merchant account. Coinsnap dispenses with any billing cycle – thus, merchants can initiate payouts to their bank accounts themselves (in FIAT currency) or to their Bitcoin wallets (in Bitcoin) at any time via the Coinsnap dashboard.

  • Fluid payment:Fluid payment: If a payment enters the system that is higher or lower than the required amount, without a separate query the amount will be accepted and displayed directly in the user’s account as a result. Example: If only 98 EUR instead of 100 are posted, 98 EUR appear for immediate use.
  • Overpayment: If a payment higher than the requested amount enters the system, the overpaid amount will be credited automatically in Bitcoin to the internal merchant wallet. The originally requested amount will be credited to the according FIAT currency wallet. Simultaneously the process is listed on the Coinsnap dashboard for further administration. The merchant itself decides whether the overpayment should be refunded to the customer in Bitcoin.
  • Underpayment: If a payment lower than the requested amount enters the system, the payment can be accepted or rejected according to the situation.
  • Payouts: Payouts: The Coinsnap set-up also provides the option of Bitcoin payouts as affiliate commissions, as single and batch transactions. Corresponding payments can be initiated over the API as well as over the Coinsnap dashboard. Thereby, merchants can meet the demand of 'Bitcoin only' as payout option.
  • Transfer: This feature allows the transfer of EUR/USD balances within the internal FIAT currency wallets to the internal Bitcoin wallet.
  • Withdrawal: This feature allows merchants to trigger payouts of FIAT Bitcoin balances themselves at any time – hourly or daily, without any predetermined billing cycle or holding period.
