Merchants will get more chances to make the sale with a new opportunity to process digital currencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin, thanks to Scottsdale-based Apriva’s new strategic technology partnership with GoCoin.
As a provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction, Apriva’s use of GoCoin’s payment gateway solution lets merchants accept digital currencies without risk of market volatility. Merchants can keep the coins or immediately trade all or part of them at the current market rate.
Apriva offers connectivity between payment devices, merchant acquirers and payment processors, already allowing merchants to accept secure card payments on dial, IP and wireless terminals, mobile devices, vending machines, and kiosks. The company’s gateway currently supports credit, debit, EBT, loyalty, check and closed-loop payments.
