Get Started with BizFirst for Merchants in 5 Simple Steps

  1. Sign up: Visit the BizFirst website and create a new account using your official email address. [Note: Please use your business email address and not a personal one, since you will not be able to change it later, and all analytics and reports will be available by default on the email provided.]

2. Create a BizFirst Wallet: After signing up, create a BizFirst Wallet to accept USDC payments. This is an on-chain wallet on the Solana Blockchain being created. Save the 12-word seed phrase in order to recover or use this wallet via any Solana Wallet like Phantom Wallet/Sky Wallet. Remember, you will always be able to access and transfer your assets via BizFirst.

3. Subscribe to BizFirst: For merchants, the cost is 10 USDC + 0.5% transaction fee. Important to note: The fee will be charged on the 30th day of your usage and only if you’ve accepted USDC using BizFirst.

4. Integrate BizFirst with your Store: You’ll then reach the BizFirst home screen. Follow the provided instructions on the top-most banner to integrate BizFirst PAY into your WooCommerce store, enabling you to accept USDC payments from customers.

After integrating BizFirst into your e-commerce store, you’ll be able to customize how the “Pay via USDC” button looks on your checkout page directly on the platform’s page. And from within the BizFirst platform, you can view:

  • Latest transactions and the business summary
  • Send USDC invoices (Separate article coming soon!)
  • Run NFT programs on your e-commerce store (Separate article coming soon!)
