APMEX Announces Bitcoin Payments Now Available
APMEX, the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is pleased to announce they have integrated BitPay into their website, allowing them to now accept bitcoin.
For more than 15 years, APMEX has been an industry leader and along the way has adapted to the growing needs of their customer base. As bitcoin has become more popular and widely accepted as payment, APMEX welcomes the use of this cryptocurrency for buying Gold, Silver and other Precious Metals.
APMEX customers can check out using bitcoin from any desktop or mobile device, using any bitcoin wallet. Also, for a limited time, all bitcoin orders are eligible for a 4.0 percent cash discount, similar to orders paid with check or bank wire.
“The APMEX customer experience is always a priority for us and accepting bitcoin seemed to be a natural implementation,” APMEX CEO Ken Lewis said. “Bitcoin purchases are becoming more prevalent in the Precious Metals industry and we wanted to ensure our customers can shop how they want and have the best experience possible.”
With BitPay integration, APMEX customers can now pay using bitcoin and complete their order in seconds. Because bitcoin works like cash for the Internet, customers enjoy a quick process, as the only delay is in the “mining” required of all bitcoin purchases. Additionally, all eligible bitcoin orders will be processed and shipped within one business day of your payment’s clearing and processing.
Take advantage of this new payment type and the limited-time introductory pricing offer. Visit APMEX today to start shopping with bitcoin or learn more about the bitcoin process.
