If you accept Lightning payments in your store, you have to deal with the topic of Lightning Liquidity.
If you operate your own Lightning Node, then outbound liquidity is required to send a Lightning payment. To receive a Lightning payment, you need inbound liquidity.
As an operator of your own node, inbound liquidity is needed to receive Lightning payments. Most of the time, this problem occurs for the first time when you make a test order in your own online store and you get the message “unable to route payment to destination“. This problem occurs when there is not enough inbound lightning liquidity.
Also if you are running a routing node then both inbound and outbound liquidity is needed in order to be able to route. You can very easily obtain outbound liquidity by opening a channel with an other node, but to obtain inbound liquidity, you should find an other node to open a channel to you.
With this service we are trying our best to find other nodes to open one channel to your node, so you can start receiving payments. Nodes that usually offer liquidity, they are doing that with an extra payment and for a period of about one month. Also depending on the size of the channel you are requesting, prices of liquidity nodes providers may vary. When you make this order, we contact you so to find out what size is best for your node and then we buy it for you from a liquidity provider (the cost of channel opening of the liquidity provider is paid after we agree of the channel size and adds an extra cost to this service).
