After you've connected your wallet to your BTCPay, you can explore various built in tools in the software. See the full list of Use Cases here.

# Creating the Point of Sale App

BTCPay has a PoS app which you can use to receive payments from your customers directly or to receive donations. To create the POS app, you need to have a store created in BTCPay. View PoS instructions here.

# Creating the Crowdfund App

Create a crowdfunding campaign using BTCPay. Unlike traditional crowdfunding platforms, the creator of the campaign is the owner of the platform. Funds go directly to the creator’s wallet without any fees. View Crowdfund instructions here.

# Creating the Payment Request

Create custom invoices which can be shared with others, by sending a link to your payment request. Users can pay the request at any time. BTCPay automatically updates the BTC exchange rate at the time of payment. View Payment Request instructions here.

# Creating the Pay Button

Pay buttons are great when you have a fixed amount for a product or a donation. You can easily embed the button into HTML. When the customer or a visitor clicks on the button, BTCPay displays a checkout page and an invoice for them. View Pay Button instructions here.
