IntaSend supports Bitcoin payments i.e both Lightning and the Mainchain payments. Lightning is a decentralized network using smart contract functionality in the blockchain to enable instant payments across a network of participants. With Lightning network, we enable Lightning-fast blockchain payments without worrying about block confirmation times. Security is enforced by blockchain smart-contracts without creating an on-blockchain transaction for individual payments. As a result, we obtain faster and affordable payments.

We also take care of liquidity to avoid loss due to fluctuations in Bitcoin prices. Fund collected using Bitcoin is automatically converted to fiat (USD) and is made available for withdrawal after the transaction review by our team.

Users scan QR codes from their mobile Bitcoin Wallet or use the addresses provided to send payments.
