Accept eCash Payments
The payments of the future are here today
No transaction fee, ever
PayStand eCash payments are a zero-percent payment option you can start using today. You can give your customers the option to pay directly from their BTC wallet as an alternative to credit cards, or as an exclusive option in your checkout. It's your choice.
The cash of the Internet
Blockchain Transactions works like digital cash, so you can trust your transactions are verified and final. Since your customer pushes the payment to you from their BTC wallet, you can be confident that the funds are present.
Adding eCash to your checkout is as easy as checking the eCash option in your PayStand dashboard and supplying your BTC address where we send your funds.
Accept mobile Bitcoin payments
Using PayStand's mobile app for iPhone, you can accept eCash along with credit card and check payments using your smartphone. Your customer can simply point their public address code and the PayStand app will scan and verify the transaction, even sending an email receipt.
Offer discounted eCash payments
Give an incentive for customers to pay with Bitcoin by adding credit card processing fees to their total at checkout. Your PayStand checkout will automatically calculate and display their savings for paying with Bitcoin.
All your payments in one place
Manage your eCash payments along with your credit card and check payments, all from your single PayStand dashboard. You no longer need dedicated devices and systems for different payment methods. It makes bookkeeping that much easier.
