Shop.com is partnering with BitPay to offer clients the possibility to pay in bitcoin, ether, and several other digital currencies.
The firm, which is owned by Market America, announced its collaboration with cryptocurrency payment service provider BitPay. This will allow Shop.com to accept payments in several virtual assets, including Bitcoin (BTC).
Through the new partnership, Shop.com users can choose the BitPay option during checkout and pay via their digital wallets. At the moment, users have the option to pay with Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ether (ETH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), and five stablecoins.
Talking about the collaboration, Shop.com president and COO Steve Ashley said that the BitPay feature is available in all the countries where Market America operates. United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Malaysia are among them.
A Belgian company also launched a new crypto service in Antwerp and Brussels. Residents can now pay for their parking tickets in seven virtual currencies. Seety is a digital parking startup and has officially introduced crypto payments for two of the biggest cities in Belgium. The service is available starting from today, September 2.
But how will it work?
Customers will first have to purchase Seety credits on the company’s app platform. The digital currencies supported by the firm are Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Litecoin (LTC). They can also choose between Dai (DAI) and USD Coin (USDC), which are types of stablecoins.
Seety helps its users to find the cheapest parking spots but also to avoid fines. With a couple of clicks, you can pay your fee thanks to the application introduced not long ago by the company. The app is available on all smartphones and can be used in more than 100 cities and municipalities.
Earlier this week another business in Brussels announced the introduction of crypto payments as well. Dolle Mol Bar, located in Rue des Eperonniers, is trying to keep up with the latest financial opportunities. “The cafe has to move with the times,” said Grégoire, one of the owners.
