Indian Merchants Can Now Accept Bitcoin Payments Through ePaisa
EPaisa, a free point-of-sale app, has become India’s first mobile point-of-sale provider to integrate bitcoin as a payment option, becoming a part of this new, Digital India.
“Bitcoin is currently becoming more and more popular in India because there is no need to provide any payment information,” says Arora.
“However, the issue of accepting it has become a timely question for Indian merchants.” The ePaisa app comes with a credit-card sized card reader to securely accept chip-and-PIN card payments and has now integrated Bitcoin, prepaid wallet and invoice payments for businesses.
It works as follows: At the point of sale, when the customer wants to pay for a product with bitcoin, the ePaisa merchant taps the bitcoin icon in the ePaisa POS application.
We hope to power 25,000 businesses across all major metro cities in India by end of this year.” Read More: india payments indian merchants works wallets businesses minister more…
