Paychant helps businesses to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies payments in a way that they are familiar with.
The company says it provides online and offline businesses with an easy way of accepting cryptocurrency payments, giving them access to a growing number of consumers who want to pay using digital currencies.
According to Paychant, all payments are processed in real-time, giving merchants the
comfort of low transaction fees that can not be compared to that of traditional payment
gateways (credit card processors).
“Although the crypto market has never been so stable in terms of its value, that is why we have set in place a system that instantly converts crypto to fiat money,” the company explained.
A key part of Paychant’s offering is ensuring that the process of accepting cryptocurrency payments is straightforward and that no prior experience of cryptocurrency or blockchain technology is needed.
Merchants using the Paychant platform don’t require any instruction on how to use the payment method, as the system is designed in a way that they are familiar with.
On the platform, merchants can either choose to receive their payout in local currency (NGN) i.e bank transfer or get settled in cryptocurrency. For merchants who want to be settled by a bank, Paychant process payout to all the 22 commercial banks that is available in Nigeria, the transfer is initiated as per the merchant withdrawal request.
“A big benefit of crypto payment is that it makes moving around huge sums of money cheap, and all these points to a future of a cashless community that uses digital currencies,” the company explained.
