The Benefits

Global reach:

Because cryptocurrency is borderless, it allows you to easily and conveniently do business with customers anywhere on the planet, using any device.

Lower costs:

Saving money is one of the most immediate benefits of accepting blockchain payments. SpicePay’s transaction fees are only 1% versus the average credit card fee of 2% to 4%. If you do business internationally, you also avoid paying steep international transaction fees.

Higher security:

With blockchain transactions, your financial data – and that of your customers – is secure because you don’t store payment information or any data that can be used for identity theft or fraudulent charges. Plus, there are no chargebacks, so your sales are secure.

Speed:

Merchants in the EU can access funds in less than 24 hours, as opposed to 72 hours with payments by credit card.

Less risk:

Unlike fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies are decentralized, so they’re not influenced by any country’s political or economic circumstances.

PR value:

When you accept blockchain payments, you get the intangible benefit of showing current and potential customers that your business is tech savvy, forward-thinking, and on the leading edge of the future of money.
