"A merchant can simply sign up and accept bitcoin, wherever in the world doing business with whomever in the world; that is very powerful.” Marco Peereboom Coinvoice CTO

Coinvoice began by offering the web's first USD-to-Bitcoin invoicing service in an effort to ease the process whereby businesses acquire bitcoin. Coinvoice now has expanded that access for businesses by processing payments from Bitcoin-to-USD as well as integrating with popular e-commerce software Ubercart, Magento, and Woocommerce.
“By offering Bitcoin-to-USD processing, Coinvoice allows merchants to receive either USD or Bitcoin from their customers.” said Jacob Yocom-Piatt, CEO of Coinvoice. “This gives merchants the flexibility to accept either fiat currency or cryptocurrency from their customers, which none of the other payment processors currently offer.”
Offering this flexibility Coinvoice opens up merchants to new customer bases without the need to make major shifts in how they do business. “It enables people who want to tap into the bitcoin economy but don’t want to expose themselves to the risks of new technology and market volatility.” says Marco Peereboom, Coinvoice CTO.
“We decided to add e-commerce integration after receiving several requests to support e-commerce software from prospective users. This offering allows security and privacy conscious merchants to process from Bitcoin-to-USD with confidence.” said Mr. Yocom-Piatt. “This opens many possibilities for merchants because now they can simply add a widget to their site to accept bitcoin and they don’t have to be worried about volatility or being bitcoin knowledgeable. A merchant can simply sign up and accept bitcoin, wherever in the world doing business with whomever in the world; that is very powerful.” said Mr. Peereboom.
With the rollout of e-commerce integration, Coinvoice has introduced a Sandbox version of the site where merchants can test the site and all of its functionality in real time using testnet coins. “I am particularly excited about the Sandbox version of the site since it allows prospective merchants to test the entire site without formally registering” says Mr.Yocom-Piatt.
