Getting access to instant global payments is easier than ever

ZEBEDEE is all about liberating the way we move real money around the world easily, quickly and cheaply. Nothing changes here. Our tech is still on the cutting edge of global, borderless transactions, unmatched by traditional payments systems. What’s new is the silver platter on which we’re offering it.

Whereas you previously had to sign up and go through a manual review process to get access to the tools needed to introduce ZEBEDEE payments into your project, you can now skip this part by getting access all by yourself. Our new system allows you to simply open an account for free all by yourself and start working with next-gen payments tech immediately.

Pick a tier that fits your needs

We wanted to make sure that our offer covers all possible projects and caters to developers of any size, from individuals and small teams, to large businesses and enterprises. That’s why we’ve come up with a tiered offering with diverse transaction and volume allowances and project count limits, each with its own pricing. And to stick to our vision of expanding global monetary freedom, we’re keeping one option completely free – everyone should get a chance to experience ZEBEDEE without having to pay a dime.


This is perfect if you’re just starting out. Give ZEBEDEE a go, see how it can benefit your product or service and see why you’ve made the right choice. You’ll get 100K transactions and 1M sats volume per month with a total of 2 projects – and we charge you nothing.

What you’re getting when subscribing

Simply and straightforwardly, there are four doors that open for you when signing up for ZEBEDEE. You’ll get access to the following:

  1. Robust APIs
    Offers easy-to-integrate endpoints for sending and receiving Bitcoin instantaneously, enabling meaningful economic interactions for users through digital currency transactions.
  2. Developer Dashboard
    Provides a comprehensive command center for managing integrations, making it accessible to a wide range of users, from global payment providers to Bitcoin enthusiasts.
  3. Developer Resources
    Ensures developer success by offering additional valuable resources that include courses, tutorials, guides and a sandbox environment that makes development simpler for all.
  4. Lightning Network-powered Infrastructure
    Leverages the power of Bitcoin's Lightning Network to enable fast, secure and frictionless payments of any size at extremely low fees, removing the regulatory and technical challenges typically associated with payment infrastructure.

But you’re actually getting much more. We’ve been developing our tech for years to be the fastest, smoothest and most secure way to move money globally. To achieve this we’ve built it on top of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network, an upgrade of the largest cryptocurrency that scales and speeds it up substantially. But while it is Bitcoin we’re building on, you won’t necessarily notice that at all. Integrating with us requires absolutely no prior knowledge of Bitcoin and blockchain, and you can use our payments tech completely agnostically – it’s just global money that works the same no matter what the end user’s local currency is.

With ZEBEDEE, you’re giving your users access to a currency with actual spending power and utility outside your apps, as Bitcoin can be used to buy a vast array of products and pay for various services across the globe, with almost no restrictions. Take, for example, ZEBEDEE’s own gift cards offering, where our users can purchase coupons from over 5000+ vendors for popular services such as Amazon or Netflix, right in the ZBD app.
