Awesome Bitcoin Payment Processors Awesome

A list of awesome Bitcoin payment processors and stories from merchants using them. Why are they awesome?

  1. They are either protected against financial censorship or they don't practice it.
  2. They process native Bitcoin transactions and don't require wallets to use the controversial payment protocol.
  3. They don't block payments by IPs/locations.

Self-Hosted Payment Processors

Self-Hosted payment processors run on your server and provide you with a full control over the entire payment process and funds. There's no third-party involvement - that significantly increases the censorship-resistance, privacy, and security for you and your customers.
