Spoddano – Cardano For Woocommerce


Spoddano – Cardano For Woocommerce enables sellers to accept Cardano (ADA) cryptocurrency as payment for their products on woocommerce stores.

It uses real time exchange rates provided by coinmarketcap.com api. Sellers enter in their receiving address and a QR code image(optional) and then it’s up to the buyer to process the transaction using their wallets.

Once they have sent the ADA they enter in a transaction ID and place the order. They will get sent the processing order email as standard by Woocommerce. The seller will need to then confirm the transaction on their end and complete the order.
