In response to customer requests, one of Mexico’s largest coffee shop chains has begun accepting bitcoin at a university coffee shop. The Café Punta del Cielo coffee shop at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla (UDLAP) has begun accepting bitcoin payments through Bitso, a Mexican bitcoin exchange. Café Punta del Cielo is a gourmet coffee producer and distributor operates more than 100 coffee shops throughout Mexico.
The agreement marks another stage of growth for BitsoPagos (BitsoPay) since the Bitso-based merchant service business launched this past February.
Another Payment Option For Students
“With BitsoPagos, Punta del Cielo can offer another payment solution for its customers – one that is secure, cost-effective, and easy to use,” said Pablo Gonzalez, CEO of Bitso. “We are very excited that the Punta del Cielo in UDLAP is the first in the franchise to begin taking bitcoin payments. Students are now able to experience first-hand next-gen payments technology on their daily routine.”
