What is ethPay?

Built on top of Ethereum Android, ethPay is a decentralized multi-purpose payment technology.
It uses the Blockchain to let you create and run personal stores to sell anything you want directly using only your mobile phone.

  • What is Ethereum Android?

    Ethereum Android is a platform to securely interact with any Ethereum based blockchain.

  • What does decentralized mean?

    A decentralized application (dApp) is not bound to a central infrastructure owned by a company.

    ethPay uses Smart Contracts on Ethereum based Blockchains, together with IPFS as storage back end and Whisper as messaging backend.

  • Payment technology?

    ethPay is a tool to process mobile payments for all sorts of goods and services.

    You can think of an ethPay store as a virtual cash register residing on the Blockchain, making it able to accept world-wide payments 24/7.

  • Muli-purpose?

    As virtual cash registers you can use ethPay stores for a multitude of scenarios:

    You want to sell your own apples on the farmers market? - Use Quick Offers to let your customers pay you directly!

    You have a small band and want to sell your songs on your facebook fanpage? - Use an ethPay store with instant access!

    You are collecting money because you want to organize a present for a colleague? - Write an offer and share it with other colleagues!

    Unsure if you should use ethPay in your specific scenario? Contact us.

  • Are there any costs?

    Besides the network fee the Blockchain charges, 1% of every payment is automatically forwarded to the ethPay DAO, which is a smart contract on the Blockchain that consists of a group of members providing consultancy services, infrastructure, and tools for the ethPay ecosystem.
