Finally my #Plugin for #WordPress is online. Now everyone can quickly and easily find and install the plugin in the built-in library.

The “Pay with IOTA” plugin is available on the official WordPress website. The plugin uses the IOTA button function, which is a ready-to-use open source instrument for bulk payments on IOTA.
The IOTA WordPress plugin can be installed with just four entries: the recipient’s Firefly address, the specified payment amount, the currency (intended for convenient calculations, all payments are made in IOTA tokens) and the name of the user or his website .

The plugin can be used for both crypto donations and a wide variety of e-commerce tools.
Further retail payment instruments will follow
The fans of the IOTA plugin engineer like the concept and suggest the next upgrades. For example, the audience is interested in whether such an instrument can interact with a wallet like Metamask.
In addition, the developer indicated possible releases of payment instruments for other mainstream CMS environments, Joomla and Drupal.
Many teams around the world are focused on bringing IOTA payments into retail. As previously covered by U.Today, Fiat gateways could even hit the market this year.
