I suggest you ...

add Bitcoin as a payment method

Bitcoin is a fiat cryptocurrency that is quickly gaining wider acceptance. I would like to see it enabled as an automated payment option.

        Dear Ecwid Admin team -- please add Bitcoin to the list of payment methods (not a 3rd-party plugin on github with no instructions) ***edit - I mean there are no instructions a layperson can follow. What is "config.php"? How does one access it?? You can't say "Bitpay is now integrated with Ecwid" if Ecwid users can't figure it out***

        Yes, please add this asap. I know ALOT of other businesses that would benefit from this feature.

        Bitpay's solution is no good if you also want to accept credit cards through authorize.net as you cannot create a second instance of the payment method. In other words, if you already use Authorize.net SIM to accept credit cards, you cannot use the BitPay solution. Another user also brought this up before I did on the forum here: http://www.ecwid.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22114 I'd like to start accepting bitcoin on my website with Ecwid, but I'm unable to do so as long as this issue exists. Eugene, please advise on this?

        When will Ecwid has your own bitcoin plugin? Isn't Bitpay a third party company, they charge 0.99% for processing fee. I thought Bitcoin's purpose is to eliminate third party. Thanks!

        Jippy I got it working.

        You'll have to upload your bitpay folder to your website and just fill out some stuff on the ecwid/system settings/payment and the config.php file that's in your bitpay folder. Bummer that customers still have to fill out a form when they want to pay for you digital product. But love you Ecwid for finally adding bitcoins. MAYOR THANKS TO BITPAY FOR THEIR FORWARD THINKING AND HARD WORK FOR BITCOINS.

        Integrated is a bit of a reach, but this is close. How long before it is integrated to the main ecwid system so we don't have to backend through Authorizenet SIM, I would think it would be relatively easy to backend this into ecwid and change up the images for it.
