    While I am proficient in Opencart modifications, I'm just wondering the best places to
    1: Get the exchange rates
    2: Transfer any paid bitcoin to USD
    3: Advertise that my sites accept BTC.

    I don't think they would really help unless your sites are already big and busy.

    If your site is busy or it caters specifically to the tech type who are likely to be using some form of crypto-currency, I guess it could be useful. I think for the average user though, it might not mean much. And unless you also use something more common and advertise that as well, it might turn people off. I wouldn't want to learn to use bitcoin just to be able to use your site.

    I agree with @cleopatra

    It's totally your decision. You know your target audience and the market. If you think it would be appropriate to have bitcoin system on your sites then you can implement without any hesitation. But as you ask here it means you are not so sure. So think carefully what your audience wants and then decide.

    Agreed, audience is everything...I've relied on Paypal for years, but my audience isn't tech based. I have experimented with a few other options (Google for one) and the headaches of dealing with additional options relative to the tiny number of transactions wasn't worth the effort.
