Use or modify the template below to ask your favorite company to accept global money.
Hello [company name],
Please consider accepting bitcoin as a payment method in your business. I would love to spend my coins with you.
Bitcoin is a global digital currency that allows one to send any amount of money to anyone in the world instantly. The currency is open-source and bound by the laws of mathematics, meaning that it is a currency that is inclusive of all people of planet earth.
Bitcoin reduces the number of middlemen to send and receive money, so the fees to accept it are much lower than accepting credit cards. All bitcoin transactions are final, so a customer cannot issue a charge back once they have submitted a bitcoin payment, which is a major advantage for you as a merchant. Accepting bitcoin would be a major marketing opportunity for your business and people with bitcoin love patronizing businesses that accept bitcoin. Not to mention that by accepting bitcoin, you are giving the entire world much better access to your products.
Notable billion dollar companies that currently accept bitcoin include: Microsoft, Expedia, Namecheap, Steam, Tesla, Virgin, Newegg, and Shopify.
Accepting bitcoin is relatively easy. All you need is a merchant account with a company like Bitpay.com or CoinPayments.net who charge 1% or less in fees. It is very similar to setting up a PayPal account, but with much lower fees. These companies will settle the payment in your local currency and make daily deposits into your bank account.
