Crypto.com, a growing crypto platform, has announced that Shopify merchants will now be able to receive crypto payments from customers using Crypto.com Pay. The move gives Shopify users an expanded reach by offering customers more payment options.
Crypto.com said it shall waive the 0.5% settlement fee on all transactions that the Shopify users make for at least one month to welcome them on board. That means that Shopify merchants using Crypto.com pay will enjoy a 0% settlement fee on all crypto transactions for at least one month.
Crypto payments on Shopify
The Crypto.com pay will allow Shopify merchants to instantly receive cryptocurrency payments from the growing base of Crypto.com users at zero transaction cost.
The crypto.com Pay is an off-chain service that is accessible to Crypto.com App users around the world.
In addition to the zero transaction fees, Crypto.com also offers customers crypto-cashback pay rewards when they pay using the Cronos token (CRO), which is the native token of Crypto.com. Customers could get up to a 10% pay reward during the promotion period which will last for a month.
The integration of Shopify with Crypto.com Pay underscores the Crypto.com Pay app as a preferred cryptocurrency payment app for online merchants looking for crypto payment options.
Following the integration, the co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com, Kris Marszalek, said:
“Providing more customers and merchants the ability to engage in commerce using cryptocurrencies is a priority for Crypto.com. We are incredibly excited to integrate into Shopify, and to bring this capability to even more customers and merchants around the world.”
