All-in-one billing service provider Paydici announced this morning that they are partnering up with Atlanta, Georgia-based BitPay in effort to bring recurring billing to the bitcoin realm, a move Paydici says “will help ensure that businesses large and small can transact in bitcoin with their clients on a recurring basis without a taxing manual process.”
Paydici partners up with accounting solutions and financial institutions, offering turnkey billing, invoicing and payment solution for small and medium-size businesses.
(I’d also like to take this time to point out that Portland, Oregon-based Paydici has a dog named Bailey working as a receptionist, which is awesome.)
The move will give Paydici an edge over the competition, certainly, but more importantly, will serve as an easier way for clients who accept bitcoin to issue recurring bills to their customers.
“We are happy to be joining the bitcoin bandwagon, and to offer our clients continued access to the latest payment innovations,” says Eli Alford-Jones, Paydici chief executive officer. “This partnership with BitPay allows our clients to gain an edge on their competitors, along with all the inherent benefits of accepting bitcoin.”
As mentioned, Paydici’s client base is made up of mostly small-to-medium businesses, and the integration seems as if it will work well in a number of different scenarios.
“This partnership is an exciting step forward for bitcoin and bitcoin billing. We hope to see bitcoin being accepted for memberships, rent, subscriptions, and even utilities. Paydici will help open the door to spending bitcoin on these types of products and services,” said Tony Gallippi, BitPay executive chairman.
