Create a new API key and follow the instructions. Once an API key is created, copy the  API Key and the API Secret. You will need these in order to connect Coinbase to your website using Easy Digital Downloads.

Note: Easy Digital Downloads uses the V1 API so please ensure your API key has all V! permissions enabled in your Coinbase account.

Now log into your WordPress site and install the Coinbase Payment Gateway plugin, if you have not already. If you need assistance installing the plugin,  click here.

Click on  Downloads > Settings > Payment Gateways and locate the Coinbase section. Here, enter your API Key and Secret Key:

Optionally, you can also set whether you want to accept payments in BTC (bitcoin) or your other chosen currency of choice from  Downloads > Settings > General.

Now, back in your Coinbase account, you need to configure your  merchant profile. Here you will need to define the Callback URL, the Cancel URL, and the Success URL. It is recommended that you set these to the same pages that are selected in Downloads > Settings > General.
