Worldline logoWorldline and Bitcoin Suisse announce the go-live of their omnichannel crypto payment solution for the more than 85,000 Swiss merchants in the Worldline network. Using the point-of-sale and e-commerce payment services, all merchants in Switzerland can let their clients pay in Bitcoin and Ether as easily as with other traditional payment options.

Bitcoin has gained wide interest in recent years; due to the collaboration between Worldline, the European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, and Bitcoin Suisse, the Swiss market leader in crypto-financial services, payments with cryptocurrencies have become widely available for merchants and their customers in Switzerland.

The integrated service offered by Worldline and Bitcoin Suisse, named WL Crypto Payments, lets merchants accept Bitcoin and Ether as a payment option at the point-of-sale (POS) and in eCommerce. Merchants can easily download the WL Crypto Payments mobile app or conveniently install the Worldline payment plugin for their webshop. Clients paying with crypto may do so through their usual mobile crypto wallet application.

Worldline Switzerland CEO Marc Schluep commented: “The launch of cryptocurrencies acceptance at the POS in Switzerland is a great proof of our ambition: Worldline wants to bring tangible value to merchants across the globe and to facilitate smooth and modern payments in all the markets we operate in. We’re happy to collaborate with Bitcoin Suisse on this forward-looking project.”

Bitcoin Suisse CEO Dr. Arthur Vayloyan said: “This is a historic milestone for crypto adoption in Switzerland and beyond. It is a great pleasure working together with Worldline to bring user-friendly crypto payments to the market in Switzerland. This step proves once again that Switzerland is a leader in collaborative innovation and a pioneer in the crypto and blockchain industry.”

Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Worldline, the European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, is leading the TruBlo project under the European Commission’s “Next Generation Internet” initiative.
