If you landed on this page, it’s probably because you were searching for free bitcoins. The first thing you should know is that most offers of so-called free bitcoin are scams. Don’t get scammed.

Is. A. Scam.
If you own a business and are looking to accept Bitcoin payments directly, you can do so with an open source cryptocurrency payment processor known as BTCPay Server. The BTCPay Server code is backward compatible with Bitpay's API but is completely free. What's great about BTCPay is that, contrary to accepting crypto payments with Coinbase Commerce or the aforementioned BitPay, it is a non-custodial invoicing system which does not require a third-party to manage your funds – you are your own bank.
