Bitnet, Computop Partner for Bitcoin Acceptance in Europe
July 2, 2015
Bitcoin processor Bitnet and Computop unveiled a partnership this week under which the merchant clients of the German PSP will be able to offer bitcoin as an online payment option. The companies said Computop merchants offering bitcoin will be funded by Bitnet in the local currency of their choice, while the transactions flow through Computop’s online payment gateway.
“We recognize that the bitcoin ecosystem is growing throughout the world and are excited to be the first European PSP to partner with Bitnet to enable merchants to accept payments in bitcoin,” said Ralf Gladis, CEO of Computop. “Through this partnership, retailers don’t have to worry about the management of this evolving payment method. They can simply accept bitcoin as payment from customers, and know that the process will be smooth and risk-free for them.”
