Receive payments overview

With Speed, bitcoin payments can be easily incorporated into new and existing apps. You can receive funds using both on-chain and lightning network payment methods. Overall, you can harness the power of both: lightning network and on-chain transactions with Speed.

Payment methods

It is best to use the lightning network payment method for microtransactions.

Do you want to accept on-chain payments in a simple and secure manner? We've got you covered.



By default, the BTC On-chain payment method in payment methods will be enabled, allowing on-chain payments to be accepted alongside lightning payments. Simply turn it off if you don't want to accept on-chain payments and turn it back on if you need to receive on-chain payments alongside lightning payments.

Speed platform products

Speed platform offers a variety of products for accepting payments using both these payment methods. Learn about Speed's integration options for securely accepting online payments.
