It's now easier to accept Bitcoin payments
Bitcoin is gaining popularity as a payment method and offers web retailers many advantages. Bitcoin is a worldwide network which means no issues with exchange rates between various local currencies, and no banking fees between different countries.
The value of 1 Bitcoin is now more than €500 and transaction volume has increased to over 200,000 transactions daily. Payments are usually confirmed within 20 minutes with minimal transaction fees, on average BTC 0.0001 or €0.05.
The way payments work is also uniquely simple. After placing an order, your customer is sent a payment link and a QR code that unlocks their Bitcoin wallet and allows them to confirm the payment.
As a web retailer, there are 3 ways you can accept Bitcoin payments:
Bitcoin using Mollie
Mollie can be automatically linked and accept Bitcoin payments on your behalf. The transaction fee is €0.25 per payment. Payments will be transferred to your bank account in euros. This is the easiest method, but you won't have direct access to the Bitcoins. As soon as payment is confirmed, the order's status is automatically updated.
You can set Mollie by going to Settings > Payment Options.
Bitcoin using Blockchain
Blockchain is a free online wallet that you can use to easily manage your Bitcoins. Payments from your customers are sent directly to your wallet, and are instantly available. As soon as payment is confirmed, the order's status is automatically updated.
You can set Blockchain by going to Settings > Apps > Blockchain.
Bitcoin using your wallet
If you already have a wallet on your computer or smartphone, you can enter your Bitcoin address at Settings > Payment Options > Advanced > Bitcoin. Your customers will be shown your Bitcoin address after placing their order. Once a payment has been confirmed, the order status will not be automatically updated; if you use this method, you will need to manually check if you've received the payment. For privacy reasons, we don't recommend using this method: it's better to use a new Bitcoin address for every transaction. This prevents previous transactions from being linked to each other.

Comparing payment providers
The world of online payments is complex and extensive. Which is why we've compiled a thorough comparison for our customers. Our comparison shows that new players generally offer better pricing. In addition, European providers are usually cheaper and support a wider range of payment methods.
The list is only available in English: this allows us to quickly add updates without involving translators.
EasyWebshop gives you the freedom of picking your preferred payment provider(s). Our system is integrated with the most important European payment providers. You can even choose a specific payment provider for each payment method. Which means that combinations such as Mollie, Blockchain and PayPal are possible. In addition, new payment providers can also be integrated using our app platform.
