With this partnership, Acromobile and Bitnet are providing sellers with a new way to drive more customers to their business, simplify their operations, and process payments faster and cheaper.
Jason Masciarelli, Founder at Acromobile, said:
“With companies like Dell and eBay already accepting Bitcoin, the demand from B2B and B2C merchants is really accelerating. With Bitnet we are able to deliver an integrated CRM and commerce platform to unlock the bitcoin opportunity for merchants with no risk and have them get paid in their local currency.”
Alain Gendre, VP of Alliances at Bitnet, said:
“Bitcoin is tailor-made for the Internet, No fraud, no risk, no borders, and lower fees than the most common current payment methods. And bitcoin acceptance is only going to grow; we’re seeing merchants who are early adopters of bitcoin reporting that they’ve increased sales and added a new base of customers. We’re excited to partner with Acromobile in providing merchants with the ability to accept bitcoin payments.”
For businesses, the ability to accept payments in Bitcoin comes with key benefits. Bitcoin payment processing provided by Bitnet has cheaper transaction fees than credit cards. Bitcoin also features no risks of fraud or chargebacks, and instant global reach with no cross-border fees on transactions. As offered by Acromobile Payments, there is no merchant exposure to Bitcoin price fluctuation, and customers can pay using any Bitcoin wallet.
Business Management Tools for Merchants
In addition to Bitcoin payment processing, Acromobile’s Bitnet integration features robust tools to help merchants manage their businesses. Acromobile’s turnkey payment portal fully supports credit, debit and bitcoin payments, allowing customers to login to a merchant-branded portal to place orders, pay invoices, and view transaction history. The system is mobile-optimized, allowing customers to pay with Bitcoin from any iOS or Android device, and mobile-enabled for merchants who wish to use the Acromobile Payments Mobile App for Field Agents to request Bitcoin payments from customers while in the field. The included reporting and analytics help merchants track customer behavior, payment trends, and payment reconciliation.
Acromobile Payments with bitcoin acceptance is currently available to merchants by invitation; to request an invite visit www.acromobile.com/bitcoin. General availability is scheduled for December 2014.
