The technology behind Atomicpay allows store owners to get immediate funds custody every time a user makes the payment. The platform does not work as a financial custodian such as Paypal or Bitpay, said Rif. From the start of the payment, no funds will go through Atomicpay and not even the processor holds funds belonging to retailers.
"It's a totally peer-to-peer payment solution, with the convenience and benefits of a payment processor," explained Rif. News.Bitcoin.com tried out the platform, whose account creation process was It is revealed quite simple. Please provide a full name and an e-mail address, and once you have authenticated your e-mail address, you are OK. A site wizard helps you configure the wall addresses of your choice to make the payment.

Atomicpay is not a portfolio service – nor is it an exchange or cryptocurrency service. Rather, it is a payment platform created for traders, but unlike custody solutions it does not store or retain their money. When everything is set up, the site asks you to generate an invoice, indicating the preferred fiat currency for payment processing (156 fiat currencies are supported). Subsequently, the user is asked to scan a QR code or enter an existing bitcoin wallet address where payment is made directly from the wallet to the merchant. Featured payment buttons include Quickpay and Pay URL.
More than 1,700 traders on board
