There is yet another e-commerce platform that’s embracing bitcoin, we’re learning this morning.
Most of the merchants using Plentymarkets are themselves based in Germany, though it is said the company’s vision is to expand their reach internationally. As part of that vision, Plentymarkets recently expanded into the United Kingdom.
“We are very pleased to welcome BitPay as one of our new partners. Since more and more of our customers are selling their products in other countries and are looking for a reliable and quick payment method, we think bitcoin is a very attractive alternative to other established payment methods,” remarked Plentymarkets GmbH CEO Jan Griesel. “It is also increasingly accepted and used by end customers. The sophisticated business model and the quick payments in the target currency make BitPay our ideal partner for processing payments with bitcoin.”
Director of Business Development BitPay Europe, Moe Levin, adds, “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for merchants around the world to add bitcoin into their payment systems. Having a direct integration with Plentymarkets does just that.”
It’s far too early to tell how many of these merchants will hop aboard the bitcoin train, but now it’s easier than ever.
