The purpose of this page is to be a directory for BTCPay Server stores and hosts. I have been keeping a track of merchants who implemented this open-source payment processor with no third party intermediate on Reddit for a few months, but I decided to showcase in a more user-friendly way.
What is BTCPay Server
BTCPay Server is a free, open-source, self-hosted payment processor that businesses can use to accept Bitcoin directly to their wallet, with no intermediates and no fees.
In laymen words, BTCPay brings the power to the hands of merchants, where business owners, regardless of their size and finance can become self-sovereign.

The list of BTCPay Server Stores
With social media continuing to bully cryptocurrency businesses by banning the ads and making it impossible for a crypto-related business to advertise and get to their target audience, we decided to make a list of stores using BTCPay Server. The goal is not only to give a shout-out to the businesses but also have an organized directory of stores which will motivate other merchants to implement BTCPay Server.

BTCPay Server Hosts
The main goal of BTCPay is to become the payment processor factory and allow businesses to process the payments for others. It is very easy to become a BTCPay Server host. The software allows you to easily adapt and customize your server. You can decide the % you’d want to take for processing other stores payments or you can do it for free.
There are several websites offering paid or free host for BTCPay. The store owner only needs to register and connect his/her store with their e-commerce platform. With hosts, you don’t need technical knowledge nor you have to maintain the server.
The hosts are an important part of the ecosystem and I wanted to give them a shout-out. The list below includes the individuals and companies that can hosts BTCPay Server and process the payments.
