Stephen Pair, co-founder and CEO with BitPay, said, “This is a win-win for crypto users and BitPay merchants. With the price of Bitcoin near an all-time high, crypto enthusiasts are looking for a way to cash-in and spend their earnings on holiday gifts and BitPay merchants want to attract new buyers this holiday buying season. We anticipate these special deals will showcase to merchants and consumers that crypto is one of the fastest and easiest ways to shop.”
As a pioneer and leader in global blockchain payments, BitPay enables businesses to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment without having to buy, own or manage crypto. To accept crypto as payment, businesses can choose to add BitPay on the payment page in the checkout process or initiate an email invoice to the consumer requesting payment. By adding cryptocurrency as a payment option, businesses reduce high fees from traditional payment methods and increase payment transparency and efficiency.
For consumers, BitPay makes it easy to spend crypto online with the BitPay Chrome extension. Shoppers simply click on the BitPay extension icon when shopping to discover how they can use their crypto. The extension allows them to pay directly at checkout or purchase and manage store credit from more than 150+ major brands.
