1. What is Polygon (MATIC)?

Polygon is a scalable solution that operates on the Ethereum blockchain, allowing for fast and affordable transactions. Its native cryptocurrency, MATIC, is used for various purposes including fees, staking, and more. One of the unique features of Polygon is that it operates as a "layer two" or "sidechain," meaning it is connected to the Ethereum blockchain but operates independently to handle the high volume of transactions. This allows for increased efficiency and reduced congestion on the Ethereum network. Overall, Polygon offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for Ethereum users looking to scale their operations.

This way, customers will be able to pay using their MATIC wallets and you can receive payments in cryptocurrency!
