WooCommerce to ‘push decentralisation further’ with new Web3 partnership

Opensource e-commerce plugin WooCommerce has partnered with Web3 payment start up DePay.

The start-up said the new partnership will enable consumers to send payments directly to their own wallet., with “thousands” of tokens accepted on supported blockchains.

DePay said that its technology, which converts tokens automatically as part of the transaction, will give merchants access to payments in real time.

The companies said that they aim to push decentralisation and embed decentralised technology in centralised structures.

"DePay makes Web3 and crypto payments as straightforward as possible for merchants and their customers, without requiring a custodial approach,” said David Lockie, Web3 lead at Automattic, which owns WooCommerce.”

He added: "We wanted to offer WooCommerce merchants a wide range of crypto payment providers, and were instantly impressed by DePay's flexibility across chains and coins, as well as their focus on a great user experience for all parties."
