Fully localised payment platform enables Polish merchants and businesses to accept Bitcoin payments online or in-store
Amsterdam – 09 June 2015 – Coinzone, a leading Bitcoin payment solution provider dedicated to making it easy for European merchants and consumers to use and accept digital currencies, today announced the launch of its merchant payment services in Poland. The fully-featured customised payment solution incorporates market-specific language and payment processing localisations that give merchants the option of settlement in their local currency, the Polish Zloty.
Requiring no subscriptions or monthly fees, Coinzone’s fully compliant payment services will make it safe and easy for Polish merchants to use and accept Bitcoin. Pay-outs are delivered quickly into service users’ in-country bank accounts, no matter how low the balance.
“Coinzone’s payment gateway offers multiple advantages for merchants. Quick and easy to use and requiring no special hardware, our solutions offer a simple and secure way to accept Bitcoin with no associated risk,” explained Manuel Heilmann, CEO and Co-Founder of Coinzone.
“What’s more, Coinzone isn’t just for online retailers – it’s just as easy for merchants to start accepting in-store payments too,” he continued.
With just a few clicks, merchants are able to accept Bitcoin at the point-of-sale, while mobile payments are enabled through Android and iOS apps. The Coinzone platform also features easy-to-install plug-ins for dozens of popular e-commerce platforms – including Magento, osCommerce, Prestashop, WooCommerce and X-Cart.
The launch of the new Coinzone service makes it possible for freelancers, online merchants and businesses – like coffee shops and taxi drivers – in Poland to tap into a burgeoning Bitcoin community that is ready and eager to spend the currency on the high street.
“We’re excited to be part of such a vibrant Bitcoin market,” said Heilmann. “Businesses in Poland are eager to attract growing numbers of Bitcoin users, and our launch will enable businesses large and small to respond to consumers with a convenient yet secure Bitcoin payment process that delivers an exceptional user experience.”
Coinzone’s launch in Poland also marks the next stage in the company’s ongoing European expansion. A specialist Bitcoin payment service provider devoted to delivering solutions specifically developed to address privacy and legal frameworks in operation across the region, in recent months Coinzone has opened its doors for business in the UK and Czech Republic and additional new territories are due to come on-stream in the near future.
“Europe represents one of the fastest growing markets for merchants adopting Bitcoin. As the currency becomes increasingly mainstream, it’s changing the way people think about digital money. At Coinzone we’re committed to ensuring businesses across Europe are able to participate in this exciting new payment method – with a dynamic and highly functional solution that’s fully compliant to the local market they operate within,” concluded Heilmann.
