Sending Bitcoin (Lightning)

Sending Bitcoin payments via lightning

You need to receive a BOLT 11 compatible invoice send payments via the Lightning Network.

Once payment has been successfully sent, we will inform you via a webhook notification.

We recommend that you first initiate the transaction(initiate payment endpoint) in order to view the fees and if the receiving node is active. We probe the route in the background to know the exact fees this payment will cost.

If you want to view the details of an invoice, use the decode invoice endpoint for that.

You can get an invoice to make a test transaction on https://testnet.yalls.org/
