Coinzone partners up with X-Cart to allow businesses to accept bitcoin

Coinzone, the European bitcoin payment platform, has formed a strategic partnership with X-Cart, a global provider of e-commerce shopping carts. The partnership is intended to allow X-Cart’s European merchant customers to offer consumers the option of paying in bitcoin, thus expanding their range of services.

“We are very excited about this strategic partnership with X-Cart. This represents a significant opportunity for both companies, as well as X-Cart’s eCommerce business customers who will now benefit from being able to offer their consumers even more payment options for their goods and services,” said Lee Dunne, VP of Sales at Coinzone.

This is part of Coinzone’s overarching strategy of streamlining bitcoin adoption by making it available on as many payment platforms as possible. They have already expanded into several European countries including a successful operation in the UK, and more recently in the Czech Republic. Czech Republic has been a very keen adopter of the crypto-currency: it already has a bitcoin exchange, as well as nine bitcoin ATMs.

“E-Commerce businesses prefer to have one integration point with a solution that covers all their needs, rather than having to mix and match different providers and solutions in a complex package which they then have to own and manage. As a result, it makes sense for us to make our Bitcoin payment solutions available in as many platforms and environments as possible,” said Manuel Heilmann, CEO of Coinzone
