Setting up Coinbase for Hiveage will only take a few minutes. To do so, you have to log in to both your Coinbase and Hiveage accounts.

In your Coinbase account:

  1. Go to Settings > API Access
  2. If you don’t have an API key already, create one and enable it
  3. Click on the API key, and copy your API Key and API Secret
  4. Click Edit on the newly created API key, and under Permissions tick the check-box called buttons (this allows you to create payment buttons)

Please make sure you have also filled your merchant profile, from Merchants > Profile. This information is shown to users on your order pages and used for verification.

In your Hiveage account:

  1. Go to the Upgrade page.
  2. Click the Coinbase module.
  3. Enter your API Key and API Secret.
  4. If you would like this to be your default payment gateway, tick Enable this gateway for all outgoing non-recurring invoices by default.
  5. Click Save and Enable.

If you enable Coinbase by default, it will appear as a payment method on all invoices you send from Hiveage. Alternatively, you can leave it unchecked, and enable Coinbase for individual invoices from each invoice’s Invoice Settings section.
