This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Haven Protocol Gateway for WooCommerce


  • Payment validation done through either haven-wallet-rpc or the blockchain explorer.
  • Validates payments with cron, so does not require users to stay on the order confirmation page for their order to validate.
  • Order status updates are done through AJAX instead of Javascript page reloads.
  • Customers can pay with multiple transactions and are notified as soon as transactions hit the mempool.
  • Configurable block confirmations, from 0 for zero confirm to 60 for high ticket purchases.
  • Live price updates every minute; total amount due is locked in after the order is placed for a configurable amount of time (default 60 minutes) so the price does not change after order has been made.
  • Hooks into emails, order confirmation page, customer order history page, and admin order details page.
  • View all payments received to your wallet with links to the blockchain explorer and associated orders.
  • Optionally display all prices on your store in terms of Haven Protocol.
  • Shortcodes! Display exchange rates in numerous currencies.

Installing the plugin

  • Download the plugin from the releases page or clone with git clone
  • Unzip or place the haven-woocommerce-gateway folder in the wp-content/plugins directory.
  • Activate “Haven Protocol Woocommerce Gateway” in your WordPress admin dashboard.
  • It is highly recommended that you use native cronjobs instead of WordPress’s “Poor Man’s Cron” by adding define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true); into your wp-config.php file and adding * * * * * wget -q -O - >/dev/null 2>&1 to your crontab.
  • Your store’s currency needs to be set to a supported xAsset currency in WooCommerce > Settings > General – Currency (currently USD, EUR, CNY, GOLD)
  • Switch on Haven as a Payment method in WooCommerce > Settings > Payment
  • Note: The receiving wallet should be not be used to make payments to the store.

Option 1: Use your wallet address and viewkey

This is the easiest way to start accepting Haven Protocol on your website. You’ll need:

  • Your Haven Protocol wallet address starting with hvx
  • Your wallet’s Private View Key

Then click the Show Keys button and copy the Private View Key option in the settings page and paste your address and viewkey. You’re all set!

Note on privacy: when you validate transactions with your private viewkey, your viewkey is sent to (but not stored on) over HTTPS. This could potentially allow an attacker to see your incoming, but not outgoing, transactions if they were to get his hands on your viewkey. Even if this were to happen, your funds would still be safe and it would be impossible for somebody to steal your money. For maximum privacy use your own haven-wallet-rpc instance.

Option 2: Using `haven-wallet-rpc`

The most secure way to accept xUSD, xEUR and other xAssets on your website. You’ll need:

After downloading (or compiling) the Haven Protocol binaries on your server, install the systemd unit files or run havend and haven-wallet-rpc with screen or tmux. You can skip running havend by using a remote node with haven-wallet-rpc by adding --daemon-address to the haven-wallet-rpc.service file.

Note on security: using this option, while the most secure, requires you to run the Haven wallet RPC program on your server. Best practice for this is to use a view-only wallet since otherwise your server would be running a hot-wallet and a security breach could allow hackers to empty your funds.
