In response to customer requests, one of Mexico’s largest coffee shop chains has begun accepting bitcoin at a university coffee shop. The Café Punta del Cielo coffee shop at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla (UDLAP) has begun accepting bitcoin payments through Bitso, a Mexican bitcoin…
The agreement marks another stage of growth for BitsoPagos (BitsoPay) since the Bitso-based merchant service business launched this past February.
“With BitsoPagos, Punta del Cielo can offer another payment solution for its customers – one that is secure, cost-effective, and easy to use,” said Pablo Gonzalez, CEO of Bitso. “We are very excited that the Punta del Cielo in UDLAP is the first in the franchise to begin taking bitcoin payments. Students are now able to experience first-hand next-gen payments technology on their daily routine.”
The Punta del Cielo team was pleased with the integration. “People have been very curious, and we want to invite everyone to use bitcoin,” one team member noted.
