May 21, 2020

The partnership with the crypto payment processor CoinPayments means increased support for the payment of digital assets for the Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify.

“Shopify suits us, of course,” said Jason Butcher, CEO of CoinPayments., emailed to Cointelegraph and adds:

As they try to add new features to their trading base and CoinPayments drives the global rollout of cryptocurrencies, it makes sense to create an integration that enables simple, secure, and profitable transactions. “

Shopify sellers can accept thousands of assets

Shopify sellers can now use CoinPayments’ digital payment processing platformThis paves the way for sellers to accept 1,800 different cryptocurrencies as a form of payment, according to a May 20 statement.

Shopify supported cryptocurrency payments support before partnering with CoinPayments through Coinbase Commerce, BitPay and GoCoin, although CoinPayments complements the offer. “CoinPayments is the largest cryptocurrency payment processor on the Shopify platform with the largest global reach,” said Butcher.

The two companies recently completed a test phase

The official union takes place after a test phase between the two companies. As of 2019, beta operations tested the water on some fronts.

Butcher explained:

The beta testing process included a full functionality and security test with actual business interactions before it was publicly available across the Shopify platform. “
