3dcart Partners with BitPay to Offer 16,000+ Merchants the Option to Complete Online Transactions Using Bitcoins
3dcart, an increasingly popular ecommerce platform with more than 16,000 global merchants, announced today that it has partnered with BitPay, an electronic payment service provider that gives online store owners the ability to accept Bitcoins as payment for goods and services.
Bitcoin is a new financial technology that was invented in 2009 as the first peer-to-peer digital currency. Using Bitcoins, it is possible to send money -- to anyone, anytime, anywhere -- without going through a bank, government or corporate entity.
“Bitcoins are quickly becoming a popular form of payment online and BitPay simplifies it for internet retailers that want to offer it as a payment alternative, without the need of a deep understanding on Bitcoins,” said Jimmy Rodriguez, CTO for 3dcart.
“The built-in BitPay integration is one of the flag features of the new 3dcart 6.0 version.”
The new partnership grants BitPay instant access to 16,000+ global merchants by making the bitcoin payment solution a native feature inside 3dcart’s robust shopping cart platform. Now, 3dcart merchants will be able to install and configure BitPay directly from their 3dcart Store Managers without having to download third-party software.
“Having BitPay embedded into 3dcart makes it very easy for merchants to setup a webstore and start accepting Bitcoin payments without writing any code,” said Tony Gallippi, co-founder and CEO of BitPay.
There is no setup or monthly subscription fee to use BitPay. Each Bitcoin transaction costs 0.99% of the total purchasing price, making it an affordable solution for every 3dcart store owner.
