Partners With BitPay To Accept Bitcoin Payments announces it now accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment on its online shopping site.


We are partnering with, the premier online bitcoin processor, to process payments and handle the conversion of Bitcoin into U.S. dollars. BitPay has processed over $100 million in transactions this year, and has now helped over 15,500 merchants across the world accept payments in bitcoin.


Bitcoin is a "digital currency" in which transactions can be performed without the need for a central bank. Bicoin's system allows people to send money over a peer-to-peer system that cryptographically verifies transactions. The system's architecture is designed so that it is not possible to fraudulently spend bitcoins held by another person.


That offers a great advantage for customers of, especially overseas customers. It also opens an avenue for us to take payments from customers who, for example, don't have a PayPal account or a credit card.


In addition to Bitcoin, accepts Paypal, Stripe, Google Wallet, Switch/Maestro, Skrill/Moneybookers for online payments in addition to VISA, MasterCard, Diners, Discover, JBC and American Express credit cards.
