Case Study: Design, Development, Bitcoin Payment Integration for a Crypto Startup’s WooCommerce Shop
WP Masters designed and built a website on WooCommerce for BitNax (at the time of our collaboration, Bitcoin Gift Card), a startup that provided users with an opportunity to gift bitcoins via cards with QR numbers.
Client & Challenge
BitNax, a cryptocurrency startup, decided to make gifting bitcoins non-trivial. Instead of asking their friends and loved ones for a wallet number, BitNax’s customers would buy a Bitcoin Gift Card and give it away as a simple, elegant present. They’ve approached us on Upwork with several tasks.
We had to build and design a platform that would allow buyers to add bitcoins to their gift cards: with a payment gateway that would accept crypto payments, a reliable verification system and security, and support for wallet-to-wallet transactions. The payment gateway had to be integrated with WooCommerce and accept Bitcoins.
The client wanted a simple laconic website with a separate page for details of payments. So, we got to work.
During three weeks of working on BitNax’s project, the WP Masters’ team of three — developer, designer, and QA specialist:
- Created UI & UX for a platform in Figma
- Developed a WooCommerce platform for BitNax using WordPress, HTML/CSS
- Built a system for generating license keys for gift cards
- Integrated a backend bitcoin gateway for WordPress/WooCommerce using BitPay API
- Built infrastructure wallet-to-card and card-to-wallet money transfers
Apart from all that, the project required two-factor authentication, so we added an SMS-based verification system for both customers and gift receivers.
The beta launch of the project was successful, and the client was happy with the result and released the project; now they’re working on the feature for bulk purchases.
A process goes like this: a customer puts bitcoins on the card from their crypto wallet, the card is shipped to them, they unlock it using a QR code via SMS, and it’s ready to be gifted and redeemed. The process is secure, the Bitcoin payment gateway works fast, and there’s a new cool way to give crypto presents on the market.
