Integrating Bitcoin into existing eCommerce solutions is becoming easier over time, as more and more open source solutions enable digital currency payments. The latest addition to that list is X-Cart, a global provider of hosted shopping cart services for eCommerce business. Accepting Bitcoin payments on your online store has never been easier.
X-Cart: Global eCommerce Solution
When you look at the options for integrating a shopping cart into your online store, the possibilities are endless. And it is a good thing to see some competition in this space, even though popular names such as ZenCart and OpenCart still have a larger market share. But X-Cart is not just any eCommerce shopping cart solution either.
At the time of publication, more than 33,000 online shops – spread over 111 countries – are using the X-Cart eCommerce solution to drive sales. In fact, just last year, all X-Cart transactions combined were valued at a gross merchandise volume of US$ 2 billion. X-Cart have been put firmly on the map as one of the global eCommerce players.
“We are very pleased to be partners with Coinzone. X-Cart is always looking to keep pace with the latest payment techniques and technologies and now, thanks to the partnership with Coinzone, we’ve got the opportunity to offer our customers a new way of payment with Bitcoins. I believe that both companies will enjoy long-term benefits from this relationship.” – X-Cart VP of Business Development Alex Mullin told DigitalMoneyTimes.
Strategic Partnership with Coinzone
Most of our readers will have heard the name Coinzone before, as this company is one of the leading Bitcoin payment solution providers for European merchants. Due to the partnership with Coinzone, both new and existing X-Cart users will be able to start accepting Bitcoin payments in a few minutes.
“eCommerce 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.” – Coinzone CEO Manuel Hellmann told the media.
Coinzone’s business strategy for the future is relatively simple: build up strong relationships with eCommerce solution providers, and ink a strategic partnership whenever possible. If all goes to plan, Coinzone will be partnering with companies in the PoS solutions and Payment Service provider space over the next few years.
“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.” – Coinzone VP of Sales Lee Dunne concluded.
