Alto.co is an award-winning app in the iTunes Store that combines all the necessary features of invoicing and estimation with a beautiful platform. It’s translated into five different languages to make it easily accessible for their users around the world. The platform is free for users who rarely use invoices and is very affordable for those that have an ongoing freelance or small business. It includes time tracking, tagging, reporting, and many different payment methods that allows anyone to get paid quickly and easily.

Alto is more than just an app; it is also a powerful Software as a Service (SaaS) tool allowing you to receive notifications, send thank-you’s, schedule reminders, send emails, and much more. Everything you need in the palm of your hand no matter where you are in the world.

Recently, Alto wanted to expand its payment options by incorporating invoices payable with Bitcoin. After careful consideration of the needs of their users, they selected OpenNode. OpenNode can also easily convert your BTC into fiat and deposit in your bank account – removing any fear of volatility when getting paid in Bitcoin. As a service provider adding Bitcoin payments, Alto loves having this feature available for its users. 

“OpenNode was easy to integrate and the setup in our app makes it simple for our users to sign up, configure, and get paid fast.  We reviewed a few providers and also researched rolling out our own solution. In the end, we made the correct choice. OpenNode’s Lightning Network support is great and its option to deposit directly to the bank is perfect. All in all, we made the correct choice.”

James Cicenia – Founder of Alto

At OpenNode we’re always happy to provide our service to applications that can empower others with Bitcoin. By integrating with Alto, we’re happy to provide another way for freelance workers to be paid with the only truly global currency, Bitcoin.
