As Bitcoin adoption around the world continues to grow, more and more people are starting to realize that buying bitcoin isn’t the only way to get more Bitcoin. With Bitcoin becoming a medium of exchange, people are starting to earn Bitcoin for their goods and services. Entrepreneurs and business owners are constantly looking for new ways to grow their business and Bitcoin provides the perfect solution. Accepting Bitcoin payments is an easy way to attract new customers while saving money and time with payment processing so it should come as no surprise that more and more people are interested in earning Bitcoin.

In this article, we will be discussing how to earn Bitcoin with any business by making use of the product features available for merchants to use through OpenNode. The features we will be discussing are: 

  • Invoicing 
  • In-Person Payments
  • Bitcoin Payment and Donation Buttons 
  • Bitcoin E-commerce Plugins 
  • Bitcoin Payroll

Earn Bitcoin with Professional Invoices

Invoices are used by Merchants to send bills to customers for items sold or services rendered and follow established standards for presentation. Professional, itemized invoices can easily be created using our platform, and are sent with a trusted OpenNode Payment Request. With our invoicing feature, you can bill clients and customers with the peace of mind that the invoice amount due won’t fluctuate with Bitcoin price volatility. This is because the payment request associated with the invoice calculates the Bitcoin amount due when your customer clicks the “Pay invoice” button. From there, they will be directed to a standard checkout where the customer will have the choice of making an on-chain or Lightning network payment. Invoices also allow you to include tax rates, discounts and specify issue dates and due dates.

Earn Bitcoin In-Person

For businesses looking to accept Bitcoin payments in person, OpenNode makes it easy to do using any device that’s connected to the internet. There are 3 simple steps involved in accepting in-person payments:

  1. Create an OpenNode payment request on your dashboard and show the QR code to your customer.
  2. The customer then initiates the payment by scanning the QR code and sending the Bitcoin from their wallet.
  3. The transaction is completed and your funds are available instantly.

All of this can be done the same day and is fast and easy to set up with a high-speed settlement. Transactions are compatible with any Bitcoin wallet and we also guarantee a locked-in Bitcoin exchange rate at the time of the transaction. 

Earn Bitcoin with Payments & Donations

After creating an account with OpenNode, you can easily set up a Bitcoin payment or donation button for your websites, social media, and even live streams. Payment buttons provide a quick and simple experience for the customer. Once they click on the button, they will be led to a custom-designed link to check out where they can provide any required info and will have the option of transacting directly on the Bitcoin blockchain or on the Lightning network. After entering their information, the next page will display the QR code and Bitcoin address that your customers will use to complete the Bitcoin payment. Payment buttons are simple to integrate onto websites by copying and pasting a few lines of code or if you prefer to have it set up in a separate URL that option is available too. We offer a simple default payment button that’s easily recognizable but you are free to design and customize it to your needs.

We have developed Bitcoin payment plugins and extensions which allow for easy integration with several major ecommerce platforms such as Shopify, Opencart and Prestashop. After signing up with OpenNode, integrating Bitcoin payments with your ecommerce business is simple and typically only requires a few short steps. We have integration guides available on our blog and are always available for any required support. Some of the benefits of accepting Bitcoin payments through OpenNode include low fees (flat 1% on incoming Bitcoin transactions), no chargeback risk, frictionless international payments, access to a new segment of customers in Bitcoin users, as well as the option of instantly exchanging to your currency of choice to avoid the Bitcoin price volatility. 

Earning Bitcoin as Payroll

Bitcoin Payouts and Payroll are payments originated by businesses and destined for recipients. Types of payouts include payroll, freelance/contractor payments, gaming winnings, supplier payments, tax refunds, and other types of disbursements. We provide businesses with a compliant, simple, automated, and cost-effective way to initiate secure, near-instant Bitcoin Payouts to recipients around the world. The Bitcoin Payroll feature allows businesses to pay employees in Bitcoin if they choose to. With the current inflation concerns due to the influx of monetary stimulus by central banks across the world, businesses may find that more and more employees want to be paid in Bitcoin to avoid having their purchasing power being devalued even more.


At OpenNode we believe that earning Bitcoin will drive the next wave of Bitcoin adoption by individuals and businesses around the world. As the demand to earn Bitcoin continues to increase, we’ll continue to build out our platform to provide the perfect solution for earning Bitcoin.
