Zilliqa & e-commerce plugins

November 8, 2021 by Walt

More and more online merchants are beginning to welcome crypto owners as their customers. A couple of years ago, Bitcoin was perhaps the only crypto payment method enthusiasts could wish for. Nowadays, the situation has changed drastically, and businesses are racing one another to offer unique coins as payment options to clients. ZIL is the token that, thanks to its features and characteristics, can significantly facilitate the payment process for both businesses and customers. The plugins for accepting ZIL designed by NOWPayments enable eCommerce merchants to automate their ZIL payments.

Key Points:

  • ZIL is the utility token of Zilliqa.
  • ZIL can be accepted as payment by online stores on PrestaShop, WooCommerce, Shopify, OpenCart, and other platforms.
  • NOWPayments’ plugins are easy to use and guarantee instant payouts.

What is Zilliqa?

Zilliqa is a blockchain that seeks to become a scalable and flexible platform for the deployment of decentralized applications. Essentially, Zilliqa is competing against Ethereum, Tron, and other similar projects. Zilliqa was among the first blockchains to introduce sharding, a process involving the splitting of a blockchain into several ones in order to maximize the efficiency of transaction processing. ZIL is the native cryptocurrency of Zilliqa. ZIL is used for staking in order to guarantee the security of the network. Staking also brings rewards. Additionally, ZIL staking is utilized for gaining voting power on the blockchain.

Benefits of accepting Zilliqa on e-commerce plugins

NOWPayments is a service that provides several solutions for accepting ZIL as payment. Online merchants that wish to deploy ZIL payment can utilize plugins. The plugins created by NOWPayments are compatible with platforms such as PrestaShop, WooCommerce, Magento 2, WHMCS, OpenCart, Zen Cart, Shopify, and Shopware.


NOWPayments does not require their partners to disclose their private details. In other words, businesses do not have to undergo any necessary KYC procedures when deploying their crypto plugins. This makes it extremely easy to set up a ZIL payments plugin. Merchants simply need to specify their ZIL address and generate an API key.


At NOWPayments, we understand that automation is the key to success, and it is particularly important for online stores. It is practically impossible for businesses selling goods to issue individual invoices to each client or verify their payments 24/7. That is why NOWPayments’ plugins fully automate the process of payment processing. So, when your client pays you in ZIL, you will immediately see a notification in your account.

Instant payouts

NOWPayments is a non-custodial service, so we do not hold your funds on our accounts. Whenever your client uses the ZIL payment plugin to pay for your products, the funds go straight to your account.
