We want to increase the adoption rate of cryptocurrency payment made by Stellar and other tokens on the Stellar network. There are few options available for merchants to sell product and accept cryptocurrency like Stellar. It would be great to build open-source platform that enable millions of online store with benefits of Stellar. Merchants will accept coupon codes that got purchased on Stellar Crypto Coupon website or app.
We came up with the idea to build this project on Stellar to receive, confirm a payment and generate coupons for users. The merchant has to sign up and add any Stellar wallet to open their shop and start selling their coupon for real products on their site. Once they have finished setting up a shop and add a product coupon on the dashboard, all coupons will be synced with their online shop via third party integration like sync coupons with WooCommerce and OpenCart. Users can easily send payment via Stellar and get a coupon once the payment is confirmed. Since it will be open-source, anyone can use it to start a coupon marketplace and develop more functions.
This is a very simple idea to build, but the project will enable millions of online market to accept useful crypto coupons. We would like to see everyone help contribute to this project to be more of a community project, like create a full Stellar integration with ecommerce CRM platform that will be useful for lots of people, and does not only limit to the coupon features.
We will update the workflow and mockup next week. Stay tuned.
