CoinBeyond Integrates with Bigcommerce to Enable 90,000 Merchants to Accept Bitcoin
Launching with one of the Largest Stores on the Bigcommerce Platform.
CoinBeyond announces the first American Bitcoin service that allows merchants that sell goods for Bitcoin on any of the 90,000 online stores created with Bigcommerce.
Bitcoin allows merchants to sell their goods at lower cost than standard credit/debit card rates. Merchants skeptical of holding the notoriously volatile Bitcoin may have any percentage of Bitcoin payments automatically exchanged to USD through CoinBeyond's integration with Coinbase.
Noah Judson, CTO of CoinBeyond, says Bitcoin doesn't have to be difficult. “We realize merchants are skeptical about the complications of a cryptocurrency, so we made the integration take the amount of time it takes to make a cup of coffee. Joining the evolution of monetary systems has never been so easy.”
CoinBeyond has been running a beta program with select merchants since April. It is the only Bitcoin processing company to record over-payments as successful payments with gratuity and has the first secure portal for customer service departments to investigate orders and refund payments without exposing the merchants' own Bitcoin.
CoinBeyond's newest merchant, Mt Baker Vapor, one of the largest stores on the Bigcommerce platform, and who's filled 1.5 million e-cigarette orders, has just launched the service with a 15% discount for Bitcoin paying customers on August 1st.
Mount Baker Vapor COO Michael Sullivan has stated, “We have had a number of requests for us to accept Bitcoin from customers. For a long time we wanted to, but there was no convenient option for integrating it with our current website. Luckily, the great folks at CoinBeyond took care of that. When they came up with an easy Bigcommerce integration, there was no reason to not listen to customer requests.”
CoinBeyond provides merchants both in-person and online point-of-sale systems that are made for the common person. They envision a world with a full-cycle of Bitcoin that extends past consumers and merchants to producers and suppliers.
