The site also stated that merchants should not rely on this new method for checking out customers. They said merchants should rely on their prior payment methods, because the new method does not provide information about the customer and their transactions. The method still allows bitcoin transactions to be processed.

In your Payza account, click “Wallet” in the left-hand column. Select “Cryptocurrency Address Manager”. Select “Bitcoin” as the currency in the drop-down menu. Click “Generate New Address”.

Users can have a maximum of 50 addresses at one time in the system.
