I'm setting up my BTC Pay server for myself and a couple other open minded farmers out here. I have not yet delved into setting up and managing a lightning channel, so I'm quite hesitant. is there a good solution this issue as on chain fees start climbing? I do not have the time to learn a bunch and maintain a liquidity balance that requires more than 15 min/week. thanks for your time and content, have a great week!

I tried the time for money exchange with a start 9. unfortunately it's not an amazing time saver and I still don't have anything setup because it still requires a few hours to configure everything, which I lack between a full time job, family, and the farm. Still waiting on a true time saving solution.
