- You can search and discover other Wallet holders on the Payburner Network
- Pay buttons can be integrated into any website. Shoppers can purchase with one-click.

“Payburner’s mission is to deliver excellent internet-based payment experiences starting with peer to peer payments and eCommerce,” said DeWitt in a Medium post. “We believe strongly in the freedoms digital assets like XRP deliver to individuals and businesses. Payburner’s role is to build an excellent and sustainable payment platform leveraging the best-in-class digital asset for payments, XRP.”
How it works
As mentioned above, Payburner allows users to send and receive payments using PayID.
Users can set up their PayID upon sign up in Payburner.
They can then share the ID to enable instant global payments.
To send payment, users can simply input the PayID of the recipient, enter the amount of XRP to send, and click send.
To request payment, users can input the PayID of the person they’re requesting money from, enter the amount requested, and add an optional message.
