Argomall now accepts cryptocurrencies as payment
Argomall, an online shopping website, has announced that it now accepts Bitcoin and around 50 other cryptocurrencies as payment.
The feature was made possible through its partnership with CoinGate, an online trading platform for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, XRP, and other coins. When a customer places an order for a product at Argomall, they will now see “Cryptocurrencies via CoinGate” as one of the payment methods.
“These solutions,” Argomall Chief Argonaut Karel Holub said, “now include the opportunity to pay in Bitcoin and around 50 more Altcoins, because it is part of our mission and vision at Argomall to make the discovery, selection and purchase of smartphones—or any other related gadget—in the Philippines easy, while providing the best service on the internet to our consumers.”
CoinGate Marketing Manager Veronika Mishura said this partnership with Argomall is a large step for cryptocurrency adoption, adding that this is CoinGate’s first such integration in Southeast Asia. Moreover, Mishura said, using cryptocurrencies as payment for online purchases present a cheaper and faster alternative to traditional payment methods.
Argomall adds that it does not endorse the purchase of Bitcoin or any of the other 50 or so Altcoins, but instead wants to provide opportunities for cryptocurrency owners to pay for products at Argomall.com in a safe way.
