Bit-Pay Merchant Gateway API Now Online

Bit-Pay.com has come out with the next installment in their merchant service offerings, an API driven payment gateway available for Bitcoin merchants to accept BTC for products and/or services. Bit-Pay's API allows for the integration into existing shopping cart software such as Open Cart or ZenCart and for the creation of custom applications and markets that operate and trade in the Bitcoin currency.

With the API, merchants can programmatically access and manipulate invoice data:
  • Create invoices.
  • Fetch invoices.
  • Receive invoice status updates.

If you're a developer interested in writing wrappers, libraries or otherwise lend a coding hand, get in touch with Bit-Pay, they're looking for you! First, though, you might need to download the Bit-Pay API documenation. (Also, here's a node.js example for you.)
