BTCPay Server is a free and open-source cryptocurrency payment processor. It enables online merchants to receive payments in Bitcoin (on-chain or via the Lightning Network). It converts dollar/fiat currency to Bitcoin or lightning at the time of transaction.

You need to have a wallet on a BTCPay server. You can run your own server, or open an account with a third party provider (free or paid).

A donate button is only one of many ways to use BTCPay, see below for more.
