I hope you have found this website useful. If you would like to support my work, please consider donating.
To learn to use the payment app, see the instructions below.
Static Lightning Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
INSTRUCTIONS to use the POS app
- You must enter a number (in sats) otherwise it won’t work. Don’t just click the green “create invoice” button (Update: Changed to “Enter amount”) without saying how much you’re paying.
Wait a few seconds after clicking “create invoice” and a new page will appear. Click the Bitcoin drop-down menu (circled in blue below) to choose between Bitcoin on-chain or Bitcoin Lightning.
You then get a choice
Use the QR code with your wallet to pay, or click the COPY button to see the address:
Click the address (not the payment link) and this will copy the address to your clipboard.
You can then paste the address in your wallet to make a payment. You’ll see a timer on the top right of the app – don’t worry about that, the payment will still work even if you pay after the artificial deadline.
If you chose lightning, you’ll get a different QR code.
The BOLT 11 invoice is what you scan with your lightning wallet to pay. The Node info button will reveal my lightning node public key and you can use that QR to open a channel with me instead.
If you don’t want to use the QR code, then click the copy button (blue circle below) and text will appear which you can copy to the clipboard (red circle below):
Denominating in USD
If you want to denominate your donation in USD, use the version of the app below (it will convert the US dollar amount you enter into sats at the current price).
For example, here you can enter $50, and click “create invoice”
And you’ll see the $50 USD is converted to a Bitcoin amount (It should be in sats, and they should fix that), and also the current conversion price
BTC Parman Pay
If you’d like a POS app like this on your website, or in your physical store on an iPad (or another tablet device), so customers can pay you in sats, I can be of assistance to set this up.
This website will always be free. Thank you for supporting/rewarding me.
