Add bitcoin payments, tap a growing community, get paid in your local currency.
Think of the overseas tourist, whose money is in a different currency, purchasing from your store using MasterCard. The tourist’s account gets debited in his currency and you get your local currency, seamlessly. MasterCard and the banks take care of the payments processing business, currency fluctuations and the rest, so you don’t have to.
You might have heard of bitcoin and its benefits or pitfalls. You might even have listened to enthusiasts speak about it. For this reason we start off our conversation with merchants as follows:
Allowing people to pay you with their currency of choice is their problem, so long as you receive it in the currency you want to use. Integrating bitcoin is synonymous to providing flexibility to your customers.
There’s a simple twist, however. Bitcoiners look for ways to spend their bitcoins and will go out of their way to buy from businesses with a “pay with bitcoin” sign. For merchants, these are most likely new customers. New business. Growth. Instead of starting a costly loyalty program or advertising on Groupon, use bitcoin, tap its fast growing community.
Here’s to welcoming the young ones.
They’ve chosen a new kind of money that can coexist with all others. They live in a passionate community, everywhere. They’ll support you, tell you what they think because they see value in you and recognize your commitment to their future.
All they ask is for you to include them.
