Coinbase has just launched a new service to allow merchants to accept the crypto-currencies as means of payment. Thus, thanks to these buttons that are easy to install directly on an e-shop, the Bitcoin and other virtual currencies can be used by users to pay for their purchases.
Coinbase Trading is a new service. It allows merchants who have an online store to accept payments in crypto-currencies through a new API. The merchants don’t have to worry about any technical details, because the API takes care of everything. It is thus a small module that installs in the back office of the website, and generates a button that lets you pay for items with Bitcoins or virtual currencies such as Ethereum, or even the Litecoin.

It is enough for professionals to integrate the API Coinbase to Trade on the Internet site. Everything else is handled automatically. When the user has paid, the dashboard updates quickly, with the information about the payment in crypto-currency.
A quick use
The application Coinbase Trade is already proving very popular, and the first platform to attempt this adventure is none other than Spotify. Therefore, it is now possible to listen to the music by paying with digital currencies.

It is an approach that is original and modern that proves that the crypto-currencies have certainly a bright future before it. More and more means are invented to allow for payment in digital currency, like PrestaShop which is associated a few days ago to CoinGate to enable internet users to quickly pay with crypto-currencies.
Cryptocurrencies dramatically lower the barrier to accepting payments on the web. We hope the newly released Coinbase Commerce API lowers it even further. https://t.co/VGg5WpjfPf pic.twitter.com/fWhoq36sht
