End of Life - API Overview


[block:callout] { "type": "warning", "title": "End-of-Life for Merchant product", "body": "" } [/block] We first launched our merchant product in late 2013 for merchants to easily accept bitcoin payments on their checkout pages and/or retail store terminals. At its height Snapcard was processing a few thousand transactions per month for merchants located all over the world! Due to shifts in technology and a change in focus, we are sorry to announce that we will be discontinuing our Merchant product on **Friday, August 12th, 2016**. Users will no longer be able to use Snapcard to accept bitcoin payments and as a consequence, all additional services, including the Snapcard Merchant Android App and various plugins will also be removed. There will not be a direct replacement for the Merchant product within Snapcard’s product portfolio. It is recommended that you consider alternative vendor solutions as early as possible.
