I hope you are all well in Covid 19 period. It hasn't caught up with me yet. Who knows will happen in Winter. It doesn't survive much in summer.
Anyway, I want to accept BitCoin payments on my website. I don't want to use third party Payment Gateways like CoinBase etc as they charge transaction fees plus these third party services hold onto your balances and know all your transactions. That is a big privacy issue.
I want to be in control of my balances and privacy. And I don't want to pay transaction fees.
bitcoin.org the main official site is down.
I can always sign-up for a BitCoin account and advertise my wallet address in my website or bar code but that is a big privacy issue and so I need to generate new addresses to where people must send me payments. Now how to auto generate these wallet addresses ? How to auto generate a new one for each new payment to me ?
Which service must I use ?
I am reading on BtcPay Server but it is confusing. I don't want to be running a node downloading all BitCoin transactions across the globe like a node in the BlockChain nor do I want to be running any partial mode and get a huge chunk of my website bandwidth drained every month.
I suspect BtcPay Server will be a bandwidth hog. Therefore, what is the next best solution ?
Know of any suitable service or PHP script that can auto generate new addresses for me to display in my website for my visitors to pay me ?
Not interested in "Donation" button. Remember, each time users click on the "Pay" button, a new wallet address must be generated by my website and users must be able to pay me in private.
There must be no transaction fees for me to accept the payment.
What is your suggestion and recommendation ?
Any Word Press plugin ?
Is the Woo Commerce plugin what I should be looking into ? I read it allows us to accept payments on our website without any third party Payment Gateway and without any middleman transaction charges but it is not clear whether it can auto generate new wallet addresses or not during each different payment time.
