According to a report, Worldline and Bitcoin Suisse teamed up to offer cryptocurrency payment solutions that enable merchants to accept payments in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH).


The partnership between Worldline, a French payment and transactional service provider, and Bitcoin Suisse — a crypto-financial service, allows crypto payments for over 85,000 merchants across Switzerland.


Based on a press release on Thursday, WL Crypto Payments is the vessel, which presents Worldline merchants with this new capability. Moreover, merchants regulated with Wordline have to download the WL Crypto Payments app to accept BTC and ETH payments.


In addition, the statement confirms that the system is safe from volatility risks. The crypto used for payment gets converted into CHF after payment approval.


Following this, Marc Schluep, the MD of Worldline Switzerland noted that this partnership reinforces Switzerland’s prominent role in the crypto space. Switzerland is known for having more than 800 crypto-related companies. As a matter of fact, the CEO of Bitcoin Suisse described the collaboration as a “historic milestone” for crypto in Switzerland.
