In what could be called a bold business move, digital currency payment processor SNAPCARD is aiming to transform San Francisco into a bitcoin city by supplying five hundred merchants with so-called merchant promotional packages that include:
- Free Android tablet with SNAPCARD POS (point of sale) merchant application.
- Official bitcoin stickers, table tent, window vinyl.
- Free marketing to 100,000 digital currency users.
Said merchants will be able to process bitcoin transactions using the Android tablet with 0% transaction fees forever.
The way it works is interested merchants can sign up for the promotion at the SNAPCARD website. Come November 15th, the sign-up process will be closed. From the period of November 1st through November 30th, SNAPCARD will be visiting the locations of merchants selected for the program.
There, they will deliver the package of goodies, in addition to setting up the Android tablet with the SNAPCARD app.
It likely won’t turn out to be a cheap promotion for SNAPCARD, but certainly, it’s an investment that can pay off well for them in the future. Most of all, this whole program will add a whopping 500 new merchants in San Francisco.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? We’re looking forward a list of merchants that are chosen once the sign-up period ends. When/if we get that information, we’ll let you know about it.
