Bubbling up from the usual channels is some great news for small business who want to get started accepting Bitcoin. On a support forum on Shopify, an employee responded stating the Bitcoin integration for the platform is now available though it appears to be in a Beta, by request only mode.
This is a fantastic opportunity for small business owners who want to launch a product offering to the Bitcoin economy. Shopify currently supports more than 60k stores across 100 countries. The platform makes it so easy even your mom can open an e-store and start accepting payments.
This is a great boost for the Bitcoin economy as both current and new Shopify businesses will begin to offer there wares for sale increasing the depth of the economy and the legitimacy of Bitcoin as a currency.
Our hats go off to the Shopify team for being innovative and forward thinking.
