Beepi has announced that it has integrated with BitPay to allow its users to purchase cars with Bitcoin.
Beepi will also offer prospective buyers pre-approval for loans at check-out. Adding Bitcoin as a payment option and instant pre-approval for car loans are the next logical steps for Beepi.
“The USD300 billion used car marketplace has experienced little to no innovation in decades and we’re excited to lead this change. Beepi first eliminated the hassle of working with car salesmen and now we’re taking the frustration out of payments,” said Ale Resnik, Co-Founder & CEO of Beepi. “Integrating with bitcoin is a natural extension of our promise to deliver the easiest way to purchase a car in the 21st century.”
“The automotive industry is at the forefront of bitcoin adoption and we see that trend continuing to grow with companies like Beepi leading the way. The beauty of ecommerce and sites like Beepi is that the inventory of all cars is accessible across the country for purchase as well as expanding the base of potential customers including those who hold bitcoin and are looking for things to buy.” said BitPay Executive Chairman and Co-Founder Tony Gallippi.
