Given that WordPress runs more than 40% of all websites, the new feature is anticipated to increase the use of cryptocurrencies.
The number of WordPress websites rose to a staggering 835 million in the past year, with 14.7% of the world's top sites powered by WordPress.
With the help of this plugin, a wide range of e-commerce sites, from small local businesses to large worldwide shops, will now find it simple to accept cryptocurrency and grow their customer base.
Already, millions of businesses use WooCommerce, an open-source e-commerce software based on WordPress, to handle online orders. WooCommerce serves as the e-commerce platform for 25% of the top 1 million online stores worldwide.
