Open-source technology, Bitcoin is both a payment system and a universal digital currency.
Tens of thousands of merchants already accept Bitcoin payments worldwide, enjoying the benefits of this inexpensive and efficient means of payment for online transactions.
A new milestone is reached today by allowing brick-and-mortar retailers to accept payments in Bitcoin. The new payment applications catalog developed by Ingenico Group, the Telium Tetra Marketplace, now hosts the Paymium app. This app is available on Ingenico’s new range of payment terminals for retailers.
“By partnering with Ingenico Group, worldwide leader in seamless payment, Paymium reaches a new milestone in the development of Bitcoin. We now allow any European merchant to simply accept payments using the Bitcoin network without risk, since transactions collected in bitcoins are immediately converted to Euros.”
Gonzague Grandval, Paymium co-founder.
“We are very pleased to partner with Paymium to enrich our dedicated Business Applications Marketplace. This allows us to bring more value to merchants through our terminals, enabling them to offer their customers a new consumer experience.”
Michel Léger, EVP Global Sales and Marketing at Ingenico Group.
