Revel Systems has announced a new Bitcoin integration that will makes accepting Bitcoin easier than ever. Users of the Revel POS can now accept bitcoins as a payment. Revel is working with Bitcoin wallet provider Coinbase to provide a hardware/software solution that allows users to accept Bitcoin into the current Revel iPad POS.
“Digital currency is the wave of the future,” said Chris Ciabarra, Revel Systems CTO and co-founder. “As the standard in point-of-sale, we like to provide our customers with more ways to take advantage of consumer payment trends and supply a platform in which to take them, and that includes configuring our system to accept Bitcoin.”
“We like to give our clients options,” said Lisa Falzone, CEO and co-founder of Revel Systems. “We listen to their feature requests, and take those into account when releasing a new build. Furthermore, we stay on top of industry trends, and we’re ready for whatever’s next in terms of payments. By giving our customers even more ways to accept payments, Revel gives them the freedom and opportunity to take advantage of trends and subsequently profit from them.”
When a customer is paying with Bitcoin, a QR code will pop up on the POS screen of the Revel iPad POS. A customer will then scan this QR code with their smartphone using a Bitcoin wallet app. This will then complete the transaction.
