Whether you have a brick-and-mortar business, online store, are a freelancer or a content creator, it's easy to accept Monero payments.
Monero is peer-to-peer digital cash, meaning your customers pay you directly. There is no third party, unlike Paypal, Visa or banking. Simply give your customers your Monero address (for example, on a tablet in your store or in your Youtube channel's bio) and they can conveniently pay with a click of a button.
After receiving Monero, you can exchange it to physical cash (e.g. via LocalMonero), hold it as savings or buy products/services with Monero.
While a simple Monero address is enough to receive payments, Monero Integrations offers a convenient payment gateway for online stores and BTCPayServer offers an all-in-one solution for online stores, physical points-of-sale and fundraisers.
