WooCommerce XRP is a payment gateway which makes it easy to accept XRP as a payment method. You can choose between multiple different cryptocurrency exchanges in order to get the latest XRP rates upon checkout. With the ease of XRPL Webhooks, the order is updated in seconds after the payment is made. This is particularly useful if your customer is making a partial payment, since a new QR-code is generated with the remaining amount of XRP to pay to complete the order.
- Upload the plugin to the
/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-xrpdirectory folder, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugin screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the
Pluginsscreen in WordPress.
- Create a free account at XRPL Webhook and obtain your API keys. This is required as the plugin uses this webhook to update the checkout page whenever a payment is made.
- Go to “WooCommerce -> Settings -> Payments” and configure the plugin.
Which XRP server (rippled) is used by default?
The node s2.ripple.com is being used to talk to the XRP network. This can easily be changed under Advanced and you can use any public XRP server.
What is XRPL Webhooks?
XRPL Webhooks is a free service that send HTTP requests to a specified URL each time a transaction is made to a specific XRP account. The plugin use this service to update the order in real-time when the customer makes a payment.
Which exchanges is supported?
You can use the decentralized exchange (DEX) on the XRP Ledger, Binance, Bitbank, Bitfinex, Bitlish, BitMEX, Bitrue, Bitsane, Bitstamp, Bittrex, Bitcoin Exchange Thailand, CEX.IO, Coinbase, Kraken, OKEx or Uphold as the exchange to get the XRP rate when your customer is checking out.
Which base currencies are supported?
The supported currencies are AUD, BGN, BRL, CAD, CHF, CNY, CZK, DKK, EUR, GBP, HKD, HRK, HUF, IDR, ILS, INR, ISK, JPY, KRW, MXN, MYR, NOK, NZD, PHP, PLN, RON, RUB, SEK, SGD, THB, TRY, USD and ZAR. The rates are updated daily using the XML feed from ECB.
What does the bypass firewall feature do?
By default, we speak JSON-RPC on port 51234 with the XRP server. Some webservers are behind a firewall that doesn’t allow outgoing traffic on non-standard ports. By enabling this feature, we talk to cors-anywhere.herokuapp.com, using TLS on port 443, which then acts as a proxy and relays the traffic to the XRP server.
