On December 30, 2019, the Electra project announced that it was looking for merchants to conduct a beta test of its flagship product, the ElectraPay. The first pilot project of the cryptocurrency payment gateway ElectraPay will begin in January 2020. During the initial phase of ElectraPay, all transactions will be made through the Woocommerce plugin. But it will soon grow to include Shopify, BigCommerce, and other popular commercial software. Compared to traditional payment competitors, ElectraPay is more than just a plugin to send cryptocurrencies between wallets. It is a complete environment that basically allows users to act as their own bank, maintaining absolute authority in making decisions about whether to hold, exchange or sell their Electros, while complying with anti-money laundering laws.
