In June of this year, the global cybersecurity firm Kaspersky revealed that 19% of the world’s population has purchased cryptocurrency. The study further disclosed that 14% of respondents who have never used cryptocurrencies would like to do so in the future. With a combined market capitalization value exceeding $200 billion, now is the perfect time to start accepting cryptocurrency payments on your website.
ICOHolder has assembled a list of more than 250 companies that currently accept cryptocurrency as a method of payment. The list has some surprising additions. You can now book a transcontinental flight, pay university tuition and purchase an electric vehicle all with bitcoin. With over 1,600 cryptocurrencies available for consumers to buy and sell, it should come as no surprise that global adoption rates are steadily climbing.
Accepting cryptocurrencies on your site is a savvy business practice. Already, 20% of millennials are holding or using digital assets, which represents a momentous shift in the cryptocurrency market. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider accepting digital currency payments today.
5 Reasons Your Business Should Accept Cryptocurrency
1) You’ll Save Money – Because cryptocurrencies are decentralized, they do not require a bank or third party to verify every transaction. By eliminating these high fees, you’ll save between 2 and 5 percent on each transaction.
2) Transactions Are Processed Quickly – With cryptocurrencies, waiting for funds to be deposited into your business account becomes a thing of the past. Transactions occur in real-time which means they are quickly processed.
3) You’ll Acquire New Customers – Cryptocurrency adoption is quickly growing and as more and more people learn about the advantages of using digital assets, you’ll be perfectly positioned to provide them with the products and services that they need. Cryptocurrencies are also a convenient payment option for customers who do not possess a credit card.
4) Eliminate Fraud and Chargebacks – Cryptocurrency blockchains record transactions on an immutable ledger which means that they cannot be modified or deleted. This eliminates potential fraudulent chargebacks as both parties must approve transactions beforehand.
5) Cryptocurrencies Are Truly Global – If your business exports goods or purchases manufacturing supplies from foreign countries, cryptocurrencies can help you avoid expensive foreign transaction fees and exchange rates. Additionally, in regions where financial services are limited, cryptocurrency payments can be easily made using mobile phones, bypassing expensive third-party intermediaries.

On August 6, 1991, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Captivated by the potential of this new global network, Book Stacks Unlimited, a small bookstore in Cleveland, Ohio, began promoting itself using dial-up bulletin boards. In 1994, the store launched a website that would grow to attract more than half a million visitors every month. At the time, Charles M. Stack, the company’s founder, did not see himself as an early e-commerce pioneer. Little did he know that within a year, e-commerce would be transformed with the launch of online giants Amazon and eBay.
From its humble beginnings in the early 1990s, e-commerce has become big business. By the year 2020, over 2 billion people worldwide are expected to be buying goods and services online. In many countries, e-commerce sales are growing by a staggering 15-20% per year, encouraging retailers of all sizes to embrace an online presence. But is online shopping merely a trend or will it continue to transform how we purchase goods and services?
The intrinsic advantages inherent in online shopping are extensive. For starters, its convenience is unparalleled. Online shopping is available to anyone with an internet connection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It also provides consumers with a plethora of choices unseen in traditional retail establishments. You can easily purchase products from every country in the world and have them delivered to your front door in a matter of days. Online shopping also allows you to easily shop around for the best deals. Thanks to price comparison sites like BizRate and NexTag, finding the products you need for less takes only a few minutes. Additionally, retailers are increasingly using exclusive sales to entice new customers to make online purchases. This means that if you’re a savvy shopper, you can find deals everywhere you look.
Navigating Online Payment Solutions
From this brief overview, it’s evident that e-commerce is much more than a trend, it’s quickly transforming how we procure life’s necessities and will continue to do so as more and more consumers embrace the convenience and cost-saving opportunities it delivers. As a business owner, e-commerce cannot be overlooked. If you want to be competitive in the 21st century, you need an e-commerce site that provides your customers with an enjoyable and intuitive purchasing experience. You’ve already invested the time to create a beautiful website and purchase quality web hosting services, but have you taken the necessary time to reflect on your payment processing needs and how to easily integrate them with your preferred e-commerce software and shopping cart?
Finding your way through the maze of online payment processors and gateways can be a daunting undertaking. Should you choose the service provider with the lowest processing rates? Perhaps you should instead opt for the processor that supports the largest variety of payment options and currencies. You also mustn’t overlook security and settlement times. Nor must you ignore the processor’s ease of integrating with popular shopping carts. The list of factors to take into consideration is nearly endless. That’s why we at SolidTrust Pay have taken a different approach to help our customers grow and compete online – we work with you to create tailor-made solutions for your unique needs.
