The measure that can be extremely great a moment for a lot of customers in Europe, Bitcoin payment provider Coinzone and hosted shopping cart provider X-Cart have entered into a partnership. According to the two firms, the strategic partnership offers Bitcoin payments to X-Cart’s European customers; this will help X-Cart gain Bitcoin capabilities for its customers.
At the same time Coinzone will make its digital currency services available to X-Cart’s European customer base. Thus, it is a win-win deal for both the companies that wanted to expand the horizon of reach. Coinzone, based in Europe, provides a Bitcoin merchant payment gateway and point-of-sale platform tailored to each specific European market in over a dozen languages.
However, with the latest move it will be able to further expand it with the help of X-Cart’s open source PHP shopping cart which is available in 111 countries, and serves over 33,000 stores. Nonetheless, X-Cart has processed over $2 billion in payments in 2014; however, the company says that a significant portion came from outside of Europe.
Interestingly, the Russian company is also a leading shopping cart provider for European businesses. Talking about the latest deal for partnership, Manuel Heilmann, CEO of Coinzone said:
“Ecommerce businesses prefer to have one integration point with a solution that covers all their needs, rather than having to mix and match different providers and solutions in a complex package which they then have to own and manage. As a result, it makes sense for us to make our Bitcoin payment solutions available in as many platforms and environments as possible.”
Earlier in March this year, Coinzone started providing UK businesses with an array of proven and effective tools including their payment gateway, which was created to give merchants an easy and highly intuitive way to take full advantage of Bitcoin. The company had then claimed that the risk free Coinzone accounts include no currency exchange risk.
Bitcoin has Several Advantages for Businesses, Merchants, Freelancers, etc.
Additionally, the customers were able to access instant payments and convert to GDP, thanks to Coinzone’s UK bank partnerships. Nonetheless, the free processing for new merchants is available until June 30, 2015. The firm says that more than 5 million businesses in the UK can accept Bitcoin transactions, through an efficient system.
Manuel Heilmann admits that businesses, merchants, freelancers and contractors alike will find immediate benefits from what Coinzone has to offer. For instance, according to him with customers in over 10 countries, the company has created a frictionless way for those in the UK to use Bitcoin with their customers and clients.
