The Theme setting is responsible for choosing the theme. There are pre-installed options, but we recommend creating your own one.

To do this, select ‘Custom’ and go to the following path: ‘wp-content → plugins → cryptomus → templates → custom’. Then edit the PHP files form_1.php and form_2.php. Be careful not to change the names of the form fields.

The Accepted Networks and Accepted Currencies settings allow you to select a set of coins and networks in which you want to accept payments on your website.
