Soupernerd states that the Paybutton team is still waiting on Badger Wallet updates to activate this payment option. There is also more to be tested.
“Paybutton.cash was pleased to announce our prerelease launch and testing phase,” stated Soupernerd in the Reddit forum, r/btc. You can host a paybutton to your website with a snippet code. Convert 160+ currencies to BCH live – [Paybutton] is fully managed on Github.
