ADA website payment processing

I am looking at accepting ADA payments on my website but can’t seem to figure out the best way to do this

So far the potential solutions i can think of are as follows but none are ideal

  • syre protocol and payment urls but your wallet needs to support these features - unacceptable really
  • just send user a deposit address and get them to send the funds directly, monitor address for the exact amount and match up orders based on transaction value - imprecise
  • same as previous except create a new address for every order removing the guess work on identifying transaction - inefficient but workable

any other, better approaches that i’ve missed? i guess i could just use adapay or maybe I should just wait until shelley is launched

Hello @franco,
at the end of November COTI will launch the adaPay solution that was announced in October. If you don’t want to implement a solution by yourself that might be a great way to achieve this.


yes, i mentioned adapay… but this is using someone elses infrastructure, i’d prefer not to, i think i’ll just create a new address for each order… unless someone can offer a better solution for tracking payments/invoices

Sorry, indeed I stopped reading after “any other, better approaches that i’ve missed?”

You are right, one address per order will be mandatory otherwise you cannot assign the payment to the order.

maybe round down to the nearest ADA and then append the order number in lovelaces

You are sure that you can offer what @franco is looking for? From your website: “Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)”
