Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
New Hampshire-based e-commerce company Ziftr today announced that The Mountain, the apparel manufacturing company best known for its iconic Three Wolf Moon® t-shirt, will be the first Bigcommerce merchant to implement ziftrPAY, Ziftr’s next-generation payment processing platform.
ziftrPAY enables merchants of all sizes to accept credit cards and multiple cryptocurrencies, providing merchants with a fully integrated payment gateway into the growing world of cryptocurrency, a low-cost, low-risk alternative to credit cards. ziftrPAY offers tokenized security, reduced transaction fees, volatility risk protection, batch payouts and more. As part of the customer loyalty program, ziftrPAY merchants receive free ziftrCOIN digital coupons to give to their shoppers to incentivize them to use cryptocurrency.
Based in Keene, New Hampshire, The Mountain has been in business for over 30 years and has been printing t-shirts for over 21 years. What began as a '90s staple with licensed t-shirts for the Grateful Dead, Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix has grown to include hundreds of eclectic designs, seen on the likes of Jack Black; Three 6 Mafia; Tyler, The Creator and many others. The Mountain’s cult-like following and undeniable vision has inspired both trends and imitations from the streets all the way to the high-fashion runways.
With $40-$50 million in annual sales, The Mountain is the first of the Bigcommerce merchants that Ziftr is in the process of onboarding to ziftrPAY.
“This is the start of many exciting merchant announcements for Ziftr,” said Bob Wilkins, CEO of Ziftr. “We’re thrilled that The Mountain is ziftrPAY’s first Bigcommerce merchant, not only because they’re a fellow New Hampshire-based company, but because they’ve made such a name for themselves in the apparel industry over the past couple decades.”
The onboarding will be complete as of summer 2015, at which point consumers can begin using multiple cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and ziftrCOIN to shop on The Mountain’s website.
“At The Mountain, we’re always trying to go above and beyond to exceed our customers' expectations," said Andrew Hemingway, CEO of The Mountain Retail. "Partnering with Ziftr allows us to take the next step in achieving this mission.”
Both Wilkins and Hemingway are attending the Virtual Currency Today Summit in Boston, MA, on April 29th, 2015. Wilkins is moderating a panel discussion called “What’s Needed for Virtual Currencies to Become Mainstream for Merchant Acceptance?” at 9:30 a.m. and Hemingway will join Overstock.com and other retailers to discuss his experience accepting cryptocurrency for “The Retailers’ View on Bitcoin” at 11:30 a.m. For more information on the Virtual Currency Today Summit, click here: http://summit.virtualcurrencytoday.com/.

ziftrPAY is the simplest way for merchants to accept credit cards and multiple cryptocurrencies. But it’s more than just a payment platform. It’s also a customer loyalty program. ziftrPAY merchants receive ziftrCOIN digital coupons that they can give to their customers to provide a discount shopping incentive that also familiarizes them with cryptocurrency, a low-risk, low-fee payment method. This way, merchants can increase profit margins and incentivize customers without missing a beat.
