Voyager and Usio partner to accept crypto as a form of payment at merchant and ISV-levelVoyager Digital, a publicly-traded holding company whose subsidiaries operate licensed crypto-asset trading and investing brokerage, has announced partnering with Usio, a FinTech and integrated electronic payment solutions provider, to enable its merchants to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment.

“We are pleased to build on our strong, long-term relationship with Usio by partnering on this exciting, new initiative to facilitate cryptocurrency payments globally at the merchant and ISV-level. The combination of Usio’s innovative, client-facing technology and Voyager’s state-of-the-art, scalable, and secure payment offering, via our recent Coinify acquisition, is coming together just as the adoption of cryptocurrency as a form of payment is experiencing exponential growth. This new program will provide both merchants and ISVs an efficient, cost-effective, and seamless tool that responds to the evolution in payment trends,” said Stephen Ehrlich, CEO and Co-Founder of Voyager.

Through the collaboration, Usio’s unique new product will enable merchants to accept cryptocurrency as payment in-person, online, via electronic invoice or text-to-pay, among others, and can be transacted using the Voyager app. Usio will support as many as 60 cryptocurrencies across the globe, making it simple, convenient, and safe. This is a new way for Usio merchants to allow customers to checkout with cryptocurrency for online purchases, donations, tax payments and more.

The introduction of a crypto option reinforces the firm’s commitment to offering Usio merchants more convenient options for their customers to pay. Customers can check out safely and easily, quickly converting cryptocurrency holdings to US dollars at checkout, with clear conversion rates and no additional fees, all in real-time with no exchange risk in price fluctuation that some non-stable cryptocurrencies experience.

“Since its inception, Usio has been an innovator in the fintech industry. By providing our merchants with the ability to accept various types of cryptocurrencies for all our payment solutions, safely and securely, just like we do for traditional electronic payment options, we will enable the merchants and ISV’s we serve to meet the increasingly diverse payment needs of their customers. The development of this new capability further reinforces our commitment to the cryptocurrency markets, as we already support the electronic payment and disbursement needs of crypto exchanges, brokerages and related organizations,” said Louis Hoch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Usio.

Founded in 2017, Voyager is a publicly-traded, licensed crypto-asset broker that provides retail and institutional investors with a turnkey solution to trade crypto assets. The firm offers investors execution, data, wallet, and custody services through its institutional-grade open architecture platform.
