There are 3-steps to provide bitcoin as payment. Here are they :
Step 1: Get a Bitcoin Wallet
The first step to using Bitcoin is to get a Bitcoin wallet. A Bitcoin wallet is a digital wallet that stores your Bitcoin and allows you to send and receive Bitcoin. There are many different types of Bitcoin wallets, including desktop wallets, mobile wallets, web wallets, and hardware wallets.
To get started, you can choose a wallet provider that suits your needs and preferences. You can research and compare different wallet providers and choose one that is reputable, secure, and easy to use. Some popular Bitcoin wallet providers include Coinbase, Trezor, Ledger, Mycelium, and Electrum.
Once you have chosen a wallet provider, you can create an account and set up your wallet. This typically involves creating a username and password, as well as verifying your identity through a government-issued ID or other methods.
After setting up your wallet, you will receive a unique Bitcoin address. This address is a long string of letters and numbers that you can use to receive Bitcoin from others. You can also use your Bitcoin wallet to send Bitcoin to others by entering their Bitcoin address and the amount of Bitcoin you want to send.
You will be redirected to a sign-up where you will need to create a wallet account using your e-mail and a password.
That’s it! You just created a bitcoin wallet that you can now use to pay bitcoin invoices. You can use the Send/Request buttons to send or receive bitcoin.
When you click on the ‘request’ button you will see a popup window that will display an address. This address is called a bitcoin address (looks like a string of random letters and numbers), which is a unique address valid only for your wallet. You can use this address to receive bitcoin into your wallet.
Purchase Bitcoin and Send it to Your Wallet:
Once you have a Bitcoin wallet, you can purchase Bitcoin from a cryptocurrency exchange or a peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace. To buy Bitcoin, you typically need to link your bank account or credit/debit card to the exchange or marketplace.
Some popular exchanges for buying Bitcoin include Coinbase, Binance, and Kraken. P2P marketplaces like LocalBitcoins and Paxful allow you to buy Bitcoin from other individuals.
Step 3: Pay your Bitcoin Invoice
Once you have Bitcoin in your wallet, you can use it to pay for goods or services that accept Bitcoin payments. To pay with Bitcoin, you typically need to find a merchant or service provider that accepts Bitcoin and provides a Bitcoin invoice.
A Bitcoin invoice is similar to a traditional invoice, but includes a Bitcoin address for payment. To pay a Bitcoin invoice, you need to copy the Bitcoin address and the amount due from the invoice and paste it into your Bitcoin wallet. The wallet should then prompt you to confirm the payment and may also require you to enter a password or other security measures.
After confirming the payment, the transaction is broadcast to the Bitcoin network and will typically be confirmed within 10 minutes. Once the payment is confirmed, the merchant or service provider will typically mark the invoice as paid and complete the transaction.
It’s important to note that Bitcoin transactions are irreversible, so it’s important to double-check the payment details before confirming the transaction. Additionally, Bitcoin transactions are not anonymous and can be traced back to the Bitcoin address that sent or received the transaction.
Therefore, it’s important to take appropriate measures to protect your privacy and security when using Bitcoin.
