Collecting BITCOIN with WordPress

My client has a WordPress website and was using CoinBase to collect BitCoin. Unfortunately there is a problem with coinbase and we need a different solution. If the solution can also work with WooCommerce that would be great, but at least something so that a donor can click a button and donate to my client.

Thank you.

Bitpay.com was one of the first successful businesses in the Bitcoin community, and still appears to be running.

It looks like there's a WooCommerce plugin for integrating with their services:

To accept anonymous donations, you can also just publish a Bitcoin receiving address.

Thank you. I did some quick research on bitpay, and most of the reviews said "stay away!"

I posted on a facebook forum, and the responses there were similar: services which either stopped accepting bitcoins, or which had horrific reviews.

Does an acceptable one-stop service exist?
Is your client wanting to have the received bitcoins automatically sold for US dollars or another currency, or do they just want to collect the bitcoins in a wallet?
They have a few donors every now and then who want to donate bit coins. The client does not want bitcoins and wants to immediately convert them to dollars.

Thank you. I do not know what my client wants to do now, but I have forwarded this information to him and leave it in his hands.
