US-based e-commerce platform Shop.com is getting into the cryptocurrency payments game. 

The company, which is owned by Market America, has partnered with BitPay, enabling it to accept payments in several cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, as well as five USD pegged stablecoins.

The BitPay integration is available in all the countries where Market America operates, which includes the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, UK, Singapore and Malaysia.

Earlier this year, Market America partnered with buy now, pay later venture Sezzle.

Sezzle’s platform, enabling people to pay in four instalments over six weeks with zero interest, is being made available to US consumers through Shop.com and to all US UnFranchise owners through the UnFranchise.com website. 

Market America Worldwide’s other e-commerce websites will also come onboard over time.

“We’re thrilled to add Market America Worldwide/Shop.com to our extensive base of leading e-commerce brands,” commented Sezzle CEO Charlie Youakim. 

“This partnership opens the door for millions of shoppers to access our barrier breaking, next generation of payments.”

“We start and end every day focused on how to improve and enhance our customers’ online shopping experience,” said Marc Ashley, President and COO at Market America Worldwide. 

“Partnering with Sezzle allows us to provide our online shoppers with yet another convenient method to purchase their everyday needs, including Market America exclusive products, available on Shop.com.”

“Even more, our UnFranchise owners, who work hard to grow their own successful online businesses, will also be able to use the buy now, pay later option.”

“When they succeed, we succeed. The fact that Sezzle approves nine out of ten consumers for purchase and is routinely voted the best shopping experience and most trusted by consumers made our decision to partner with it a no brainer.”  SOURCE Shop.com turns on crypto payments via BitPay tie up — Retail Technology Innovation Hub (retailtechinnovationhub.com)
