Shop.com, the e-commerce platform, announced that it now accepts Bitcoin payments via its partnership with BitPay.
Moreover, the United States-based e-commerce platform Shop.com gives the option to pay with Bitcoin, Ether, Dogecoin, and several major dollar-pegged stablecoins.
Powered by Market America, Shop.com teamed up with crypto payment service provider BitPay. BitPay lets e-commerce platforms accept payments in various cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC).
According to the company, the partnership with BitPay allows Shop.com users to checkout via their crypto wallets. As of now, users can pay with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ether (ETH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), and 5 USD-pegged stablecoins.
In addition, Shop.com described collaboration as the next chapter in doing business. Aside from this, the Bitpay chief commercial officer, Sonny Singh, appreciated Market America's international presence. Sonny Singh said,
"In countries like Taiwan, Thailand, Argentina, Brazil, and Indonesia, it’s very hard to make payments. Credit cards are not everywhere and in those countries, Bitpay and crypto is the cheapest, quickest payment option to accept Bitcoin and to receive crypto payment options as well."
The United States-based e-commerce platform Shop.com is the latest site to adopt cryptocurrency payments.
