Integrations of BitPay and CoinGate with LearnPress, which is a popular WordPress plugin for creating and managing online courses. However, you can still integrate these cryptocurrency payment gateways into your LearnPress-powered WordPress website with some custom development work. Here's a general approach:

Install BitPay and CoinGate Plugins:

  • Begin by installing the BitPay and CoinGate plugins for WordPress. You can find these plugins in the WordPress plugin repository. These plugins typically work with WooCommerce, a popular e-commerce plugin for WordPress, but may require additional customization to work with LearnPress.


Create Custom Integration:

  • You'll likely need to develop a custom integration to make BitPay and CoinGate work with LearnPress.
  • This involves creating or modifying code to connect the cryptocurrency payment gateway plugins with LearnPress.


Payment Gateway Customization:

  • Customize the payment process within LearnPress to include BitPay and CoinGate as payment options alongside traditional payment gateways.
  • Develop code to handle the payment flow, including capturing cryptocurrency payments and confirming transactions.


Testing and Debugging:

  • Thoroughly test the integration to ensure it works smoothly.
  • Verify that payments are processed correctly, and users gain access to courses upon successful payment.



  • Keep your plugins, themes, and custom code up to date to ensure compatibility and security.


Documentation and User Guidance:

  • Provide clear instructions to users on how to make cryptocurrency payments using BitPay and CoinGate on your LearnPress-powered site.


Please note that cryptocurrency integrations can be complex due to the rapidly evolving nature of cryptocurrencies and the necessity for stringent security practices. Additionally, the availability of specific plugins and integrations can change over time. It's a good practice to check the official LearnPress documentation and forums, as well as the WordPress plugin repository, for updates and new integrations related to cryptocurrency payments and LearnPress.
