PrestaShop Crypto Payment Module Update

SpectroCoin PrestaShop Crypto Payment Module 1.0.0


We have updated the module admin settings design for a more modern look inspired by spectrocoin.com. Also, the module now uses the new SpectroCoin logo.


We have added the ability to modify the plugin title, description, and toggle logo display on the checkout page.

Improved API handling

We have improved API error handling and provided a styled error form based on the SpectroCoin payment redirect. For seamless utilization, we have included links to return to the shop or contact support if an API error occurs during the process. A list of accepted fiat currencies is now available in JSON format, ensuring future compatibility with updated Spectrocoin APIs.

Advanced UX

We have included an introduction on how to obtain merchant credentials and set up the module so that the installation process will be straightforward.

We have fixed a bug related to multicurrency sites, ensuring the SpectroCoin checkout option is only displayed if the selected currency is on the accepted list so that end customers won't be confused.
