Bitcoin Suisse announced on Friday that, together with Worldline, one of the leading payment companies worldwide, it will launch an omnichannel crypto payment solution for over 85,000 Swiss merchants in the Worldline network. According to the press release, the infrastructure’s support will be provided by Bitcoin Suisse.
With the new solution in place, dubbed “WL Crypto Payments,” e-commerce and point-of-sale merchants in Switzerland could accept payments in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). When a customer arranges a purchase, prices will be shown by the merchant in CHF, and it can be alternatively quoted in one of the cryptos mentioned above.
“The launch of cryptocurrencies acceptance at the POS in Switzerland is a great proof of our ambition: Worldline wants to bring tangible value to merchants across the globe and to facilitate smooth and modern payments in all the markets we operate in. We’re happy to collaborate with Bitcoin Suisse on this forward-looking project,” Marc Schluep, Worldline Switzerland’s CEO, highlighted on the announcement. The collaboration between the parties started in November 2019, when they deployed some pilot programs to test crypto payments solutions.
