Camping World and BitPay partner to accept Bitcoin payments
By Pavithra R
Through BitPay,Camping World will accept Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and select other cryptocurrencies through a variety of digital wallets. The alliance will allow Camping World to maximize convenience for the customer and attract new consumers without holding the currency on its balance sheet. The initiative is part of the company’s renewed focus on accelerating innovation in the RV marketplace.
“As the industry leader, we have a responsibility to adapt to new preferences and elevate the customer experience, whether through the products and services we offer, or in the ways we interact and transact with the customer. Accepting cryptocurrency is simply another part of our vision to make RVing easy in an increasingly digital world,” said Marcus Lemonis, CEO and Chairman of Camping World.
Camping World will initially launch the service in selected locations including Chicago, IL and Kenosha, WI locations. The company has plans to expand to all locations that sell RVs and to its e-commerce platforms. The collaboration with BitPay comes on the heels of the Company’s recent announcement that it is developing a platform for a paperless, online RV purchase experience.
BitPay builds powerful, enterprise-grade tools for crypto acceptance and spending. The FinTech is developing blockchain payment technology to transform how businesses and people send, receive, and store money worldwide. Its business solutions eliminate transaction fraud, reduce the cost of payment processing, and enable borderless payments in cryptocurrency.
