A recent change in the Stripe API, accompanied by a shift in Stripe’s handling of Bitcoin has prompted us to switch to CoinPayments.net directly for handling cryptocurrency. Payments processed through the CoinPayments.net gateway will still ultimately be processed by our CoinBase account, but will no longer be initialized via Stripe.
On the checkout page, CoinPayments.net is now listed as an additional gateway. Selecting that and clicking Place Order will transfer you to a page hosted by CoinPayments.net, where you may select Bitcoin or another one of a number of different cryptocurrencies.
For those crypto-currency lovers in the OS/2 universe, we are now proud to announce that Arca Noae is able to accept Bitcoin as a method of payment. Simply select the option to use Credit Card or Bitcoin (via Stripe), and click the Bitcoin option in the popup window during checkout.
We understand that not everyone is enamoured of processing payments through PayPal’s gateway, for a variety of reasons, whether they be security concerns or other bad customer service experiences.
We feel strongly that how you pay us should never become an obstacle to transacting business with us. We remain committed to providing our customers with the broadest possible range of payment solutions to get the business end of things out of the way as quickly, easily, and painlessly as possible.
We know that for some of you, the wait has been long. Today, we are pleased to announce that Arca Noae has established a relationship with Stripe to handle our credit card processing for all major credit and debit cards, internationally.
Based in San Francisco, California, USA, Stripe’s investors include Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and PayPal co-founders Peter Thiel, Max Levchin, and Elon Musk. Read more about Stripe on their press page.
