1 million NOK in Bitcoin sales

(Oslo, 3. Mai 2016) has now had a turnover of over 1 million NOK with Bitcoin the last two years. Payment in Bitcoins via the payment provider Bitpay gives you the opportunity to use alternative channels to PayPal (VISA/Mastercard) to accept payments. Bitcoin is an extremely secure payment option for vendors with no possibility of chargebacks.

– This has been a great success since day one. Bitcoin now represents a big share of our sales and is increasing every year. In addition to being an extremely secure form of payment it is far cheaper for us than using alternatives like PayPal. It is clear that Bitcoin has been a great success for our part, says Eivind Bulie Haanæs, CEO of Host1.

BitPay Inc, is an american company that process payments via Bitcoin for other companies. Bitpay allows companies to accept payments in Bitcoin, and choose whether you want to be paid in Bitcoin, or EUR/USD.

– Accepting payment in Bitcoins via BitPay gives us the opportunity to get paid directly in Euro, and removes all risk related to the change in value of Bitcoin. The largest part of the sales comes from clients outside of Norway, even though the share of norwegians paying via Bitcoin is increasing, says Eivind Bulie Haanæs, CEO of Host1.
