Payment Gateway Can Be Integrated Directly Into The Merchant’s Website
The plan for the ADA payment gateway first was announced on Oct 23. The announcement stated that the payment solution is now purportedly available to be integrated directly into the merchant’s website, using either an AdaPay button or a QR-based point of sale system.
Merchants can manage real-time transactions in ADA, using Coti’s Universal Payment Solution (UPS) to further extend the utility case for the token. The payment tool is expected to combine “all existing support systems of traditional payment processors with the added value of digital assets,” as mentioned in the announcement.
After the announcement, ADA is up around 0.2% over the past 24 hours, trading at $0.040 at publishing time.
