Association adds new crypto-payment methods to Shopify

A partnership with the crypto-payment processor, CoinPayments, means strengthening digital asset payment support for Canada’s e-commerce giant, Shopify.

„Shopify is a natural fit for us,“ CoinPayments CEO Jason Butcher told Cointelegraph via email, adding

As they look to bring new features to their merchant base and CoinPayments works to drive the adoption of crypto currencies globally, it makes sense to create an integration that allows for easy, secure and cost-effective transactions.

Shopify sellers can accept thousands of assets

Shopify merchants can now leverage CoinPayments‘ digital asset payment processing platform, paving the way for merchants to accept 1,800 different crypto currencies as payment, according to details in a May 20 statement.

Shopify promoted crypto currency payment support prior to partnering Bitcoin Code / Bitcoin Circuit / Bitcoin Billionaire / Bitcoin Profit / Immediate Edge / Bitcoin Era / Bitcoin Evolution / Bitcoin Trader / The News Spy / Bitcoin Revolution with CoinPayments, through Coinbase Commerce, BitPay and GoCoin, although CoinPayments is joining the offer. „CoinPayments is the largest crypto-currency payment processor on the Shopify platform with the largest global reach,“ Butcher said.
