SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 05, 2019
Dash, the top digital currency for payments and e-commerce, announced today that Dash is now accepted at over 1,000 new merchants and more than 250 ATMs through its partnership with IQ CashNow, a full-service provider specializing in cryptocurrency ATMs, point-of-sale (POS) terminals and e-commerce websites.
Across Europe, the U.S. and Ecuador, businesses like coffee shops, bars and restaurants are now accepting Dash through IQ CashNow. One distinct advantage of Dash is that all Dash transactions are instantly confirmed, meaning all Dash payments are instantly settled at point of sale. Credit card transaction fees typically run between 3.5% and 5%, while the IQ CashNow cryptocurrency payment processing fee is around 1%. The average Dash transaction size on IQ CashNow is 10-20 Euros, meaning the average fee is between 10-20 cents compared to the 35-50 cent cost of a traditional credit card transaction.
“Dash was an attractive addition for IQ CashNow because it’s capable of settling transactions instantly,” said Gerald Wirtl, CEO of IQ CashNow. “Low fees, transaction speed, and security are all core elements to our customers and towards driving broader adoption of cryptocurrency, and we feel Dash is a perfect fit.”
Future integrations plans will include promotion materials at POS terminals, creating a touchpoint to educate customers about the opportunity to pay with cryptocurrency. The IQ CashNow POS terminals are full-service devices, offering a way for merchants to not only process crypto payments, and will soon be adding support for traditional credit card payments as well.
“Dash is now available to more people than ever,” said Jan Heinrich Meyer, CEO & Founder of Dash Embassy. “This partnership not only puts Dash and IQ CashNow closer to their shared mission of driving global adoption of cryptocurrency, it also makes transactions faster and cheaper for merchants across key countries and regions already seeing tremendous crypto growth.”
