The beauty with bitcoin is that you can choose to start accepting it free today without asking anyone permission. Just choose a wallet at https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet
, slap a bitcoin accepted banner (some free ones at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Promotional_graphics
) on your site, and ask people who want to pay in bitcoin to ask you for a bitcoin invoice from you.
If you have a big store or this all seems tedious to you, there are established companies that will do all the work for you:
Option 1: Set up shop at Shopify
. They will integrate bitcoin payments into your shop through bitpay
Option 2: Integrate bitpay
into your own site. Both allow you to either accept bitcoins directly or to accept bitcoins as a form of payment that is then deposited to your bank account in your local currency. Both have fees far lower than credit or debit cards!
