1.Upload your product on a file-sharing site
First, you need to find a place to keep your artwork, book, article, or video. In this example, I used Google Drive, but you can also use others like Dropbox. Just make sure it's a site where you can share the file through a link. When you’ve uploaded it, copy the share link and save it for later!
2.Set up the Button/URL
Head on over to the Blockonomics Merchants section, Click on the ‘Payment Buttons/Links -> Products’, and fill in your information including the Product name and description, and what information you need from your customers. Then, make sure you fill out the Order Complete Email area and include the URL you copied earlier from Google Drive. That email will be sent after the completion of payment and will allow the customer to download the file. Then click on Generate Button or Generate URL, this is what you’ll put on your website
3.Test the Button/URL
After you’ve filled in the fields, it's time to test to make sure it all works. Click on the button, enter your email, and click pay now. Then copy the Bitcoin amount, and the address you send it to.
Then click on ‘Logs/Test Bench’, and enter in the info including the Bitcoin amount and the Bitcoin address, and set the Payment Status to Confirmed. This will do a test of the payment and email to see if you did everything right without spending any Bitcoin!
4.Copy and Paste the Button or URL to your website
If you make a button, copy and paste both HTML codes to your website’s HTML. And if you make a URL, just paste that in anywhere you need it! Then you’ll be all set up!
As you can see, it's pretty easy to set up a Bitcoin payment option for your digital goods! This is an easy way to get Bitcoin for anything you might make or sell, including music, videos, books, art, tickets, and even tutoring. Happy Selling!
