Do you like to have your own online store? Do you like to accept bitcoin payments on your online store? Well, you can have both with Bigcommerce. Thanks to CoinBeyond, now all stores on the Bigcommerce platform can include bitcoin payment options.
Bigcommerce is one of the widely used e-commerce website building platform. Individuals and small businesses can build their own e-commerce websites, with complete integration of analytics, checkout and payment options. Unlike selling their products on a third party e-commerce site like Amazon or eBay, the company or the individual using Bigcommerce will be able to sell their products and services under their own brand name.
Recently Bigcommerce partnered with CoinBeyond, a bitcoin payments processor. Since the partnership, the company has got over 95,000 online stores to integrate bitcoin payment option. In order to ensure that there is no confusion among merchants when it comes to integration of bitcoin payment option, CoinBeyond has simplified the whole process. The CTO of CoinBeyond, Noah Judson compares the whole integration process to the process of making a cup of coffee.
The success of CoinBeyond on Bigcommerce lies in its ease of integration which was a result more than a year of beta testing and feedback. A selected number of merchants have been using CoinBeyond since 2014 as beta users and providing their valuable feedback to the company. Apart from just enabling the customers to make bitcoin payments, CoinBeyond also focuses on the customer service part. The customer service portal ensures customer privacy by hiding customer’s financial information from customer service representatives handling any complaints or issues.
Bigcommerce is CoinBeyond’s first major deployment. Founded in 2014, the company has been constantly working on providing a bitcoin payment solution unlike anything that is currently available in the market. They have previously raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Denny Hill Capital LP. With the number of people using bitcoin around the world gradually increasing, CoinBeyond definitely has a chance to make it big in the market.
