Blockonomics makes it easy to accept Bitcoin Cash on your Prestashop store. 

To setup our Blockonomics Plugin to accept Bitcoin Cash, make sure you follow these steps:

  1. Create a Bitcoin Cash wallet: it's essential that you create one if you don't have it already. There are plenty of options available in the market, including hot and cold wallets. Choose one that's able to create an xPub key.

  2. Download the Blockonomics module: you may download our module and install it on your Prestashop store. Upload the zip file to the Module Manager page to install it.
                                                                First, go to Modules and Module Manager

                                                                    Upload our plugin zip file to install it

  3. Enter xPub Key: go to BCH merchants page and enter your Bitcoin Cash xPub key, as shown in the image below.
  4. Add API Key: Once you have added the xPub, copy the generated API key and paste it to your Prestashop Blockonomics module. You can find settings in Modules > Module Manager > Blockonomics > Configure. This may have been added during your Bitcoin setup.

  5. Tick the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) checkbox.
  6. Test Setup: In Blockonomics settings, after selecting the checkbox next to Bitcoin Cash (BCH), click on Test Setup. You should see "Success" below Bitcoin Cash (BCH) indicating that setup is complete and you can start accepting BCH payments.
  7. Run a checkout on your store and click on Pay with Bitcoin Cash. You should be able to see a BCH address with payment instructions.
  8. That's it! Now you can start accepting payments with BCH on your Prestashop store.

What happens if I don't get a success message after running the setup test?

First of all, make sure the xPub Key is from a Bitcoin Cash wallet. Besides that, if you're also accepting BTC, don't forget to add a BTC store on our BTC Merchants page. If you're still having trouble on this Test Setup stage, please consult this troubleshooting article or contact us.

How do I get an xPub key from my Bitcoin Cash wallet?

It depends on the wallet you're using. You can usually find it through its settings or account management, the process will be similar for all wallets. Here's an example using Coinomi

1. In your wallet's menu, go to Settings, then click on Export keys.

2. It'll take you to an external link, where you must add in your wallet's 12 phrase passcode (first screenshot below. After that, you'll get your xPub key. 

If you're unable to find it, consult the wallet's support page or reach out to their customer service for assistance.
