Over the past two decades, ecommerce has become one of the main ways of doing business. However, with all the advantages of virtual operations (speed and convenience above all), they are controlled by banking institutions, which entails a number of restrictions.
Fortunately, progress does not stand still and the traditional types of currency are replaced by cryptocurrency - a form of digital currency using blockchain technology. This decentralized financial system allows you to transfer money without leaking information and is today an excellent alternative to using credit cards and bank accounts to pay for goods and services.
When utilizing cryptocurrencies as a way of payment method, it’s important to understand the solid advantages digital assets have over traditional currencies:
- work in non-stop mode. Unlike the banking system, blockchain works without holidays and weekends;
- minimum transaction fee. The commission for performing a Bitcoin transaction is a percentage of interest, which is several times lower than payment for transactions using credit and debit cards;
- simplicity and accessibility of cross-border payments. Opening a vending account for accepting cryptocurrency is a real opportunity for small companies operating in e-commerce to reach international sales;
There are various developers on the cryptocurrency ecommerce market, but no other stand out as much as K-Merchant - a secure payment gateway developed by KaratGold, a blockchain payment solution developer.
K-Merchant allows its users to accept cryptocurrency payments in just a simple scan. The system allows for easy onboarding and an easy-to-use dashboard for funds management and registry overview.
