  • Bitcoin can be automatically cashed out daily to any bank account.
  • Create email invoices dynamically with the Coinbase API

How to Create an Email Invoice

Invoices can be generated via our invoice generator (shown below). It’s the easiest way to get started.

Setting a Custom Attribute

If you set a ‘Custom ID’ attribute while creating the invoice, this will get passed through in the callback to your site. This is an optional step that can be useful to automatically update your records when an order or user is marked as paid.
