How it works – example

  1. An item in the store costs 100 euro.
  2. A customer wants to buy the item and selects to pay with Bitcoin.
  3. An invoice is generated and, according to the current exchange rate, the price is 50,000 euro per bitcoin, so the customer has to pay 0.002 bitcoins.
  4. Once the invoice is paid, the merchant gets a notification and is credited 99 euro (100 euro minus our 1% flat fee), or 0.00198 BTC.

To be able to use the plugin you have to create an account on

First and foremost, you will need to sign up for an account on CoinGate. For production, use our main website: But before you go live, you may want to do some testing, to make sure everything works nicely. For this purpose, we have a sandbox environment: – just remember to create an account here even if you already have one on our main website.

The installation of our WooCommerce payment module is quite easy. In order to ensure that CoinGate payment gateway is working properly on your website, we will go over these two quick steps:

  • Setup API credentials on CoinGate.
  • Install the CoinGate payment module for WooCommerce.

For the testing mode to work, you must generate separate API credentials on, since API credentials generated on will not work in the sandbox environment. To create a set of API credentials, log in to your CoinGate account, and either complete the auto-setup wizard, or find the API tab on the menu – click “Apps”, and then click “+New App”.

Please note, this guide was created using WordPress 4.7.4, but is also useful for installing older or upcoming versions.

  1. Login to your WordPress admin panel and go to Plugins > Add New.
  2. In the Search Plugins field, type in “coingate”. When the CoinGate for WooCommerce plugin is displayed, click “Install Now” (if asked, enter your FTP credentials).
  3. After the plugin is installed, click “Activate”.
  4. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Payments > Method : “CoinGate – Cryptocurrencies via CoinGate (more than 50 supported)” and then click the check box “Enabled”. After Enabled is clicked then press on CoinGate on the same page. If needed, change the Description and the Title according to your preferences.
  5. Enter your API credentials on the WooCommerce configuration page.
  6. Set the Receive Currency parameter to the currency in which you wish to receive your payouts from CoinGate.
    At this point, you can also configure how CoinGate order statuses will correspond to WooCommerce order statuses. Leave the default options if you are not sure.
  7. If you are using Sandbox API credentials, then turn Test Mode on.
  8. Finally, click “Save changes”, and you are good to go!

We have been using Coingate's plugin for more than half a year now and had several purchases with it. Works great, the installation was quick, no complaints at all. Recommended!

We are using this plugin for more than a year and process a large number of payments. Overall works well but not to perfection. For example, SOMETIMES an order status is updated to "paid" correctly, but after 1 or 2 hours the order status changes to "canceled" (no idea why because the payment was already received). So the client will contact me screaming asking why we took the money and canceled the order... then I have to explain and check manually. Coingate should pay more attention to this plugin and update it more often.

I been trying to get my account verified since July 2019. Its march 2021 now. Imagine how long this has took me to finally had it and leave a bad review. To get verified I had to sent in all my personal details, I did. Then they refused it since its all in dutch. I'm a dutch freelancer, not an internation multi milion dollar business. It cost me a lot of money to request all the official documents translated to english. Then still no verification. They keep making excuses not to verify. While I keep responding right away to their request. They take weeks sometimes months to reply. To the point today, I still cant refund my balance, I cant accept bitcoin anymore, And I lost all my BTC that are in my coingate account. DO NOT USE COINGATE

I used the Coingate plugin to accept bitcoin for the last years and it worked with little issues but now I can not withdraw my bitcoin, it is stuck in coingate and they do not reply with any update to my ticket opened about the issue in December 2020 and I provided all documents they asked. They said they are still checking documents but it should not take more than 2 months to check, my bitcoin is still stuck and caused me loss. I saw other coingate plugin users reported this similar issue and this plugin should probably be suspended from Wordpress for causing harm and loss to users. For now removed the Coingate plugin due to the issue, and no new plugin updates for the last 2 years, I worry they are planning to exit scam with my thousands of dollars of bitcoin. Please someone at Coingate reply and either ask for more documents if you need or approve my withdraw request, thank you.

The service requires sending documentation in English to process payments leaving Spanish-speaking countries excluded.
