Coinbase is one of the most multi-faceted companies in the nascent cryptocurrency industry. For consumers, there’s Coinbase Consumer(Coinbase.com) and the Coinbase Pro. For institutional investors, there’s Coinbase Prime, Index Fund, and Custody.
And last but not least, for retailers/merchants, there’s the Coinbase Commerce platform, which has begun to play a growing role in the cryptosphere in the past few months.
Developers at the firm have overhauled the official Coinbase Commerce web page to draw in new retailers. The refreshed website highlights the key features, which are as follows, of the commerce-focused service:
- “Up And Running In Minutes” — Coinbase Commerce allows prospective users to install and set-up cryptocurrency support “in minutes, not days,” through easy-to-integrate checkout pages, payment buttons and integrations into digital retail platforms.
- “Free” — Coinbase Commerce does not charge any fees when using their crypto-commerce integration service. As the crypto startup puts it “accepting cryptocurrency payments is easy and free — just the way internet payments should be.”
- “Stay In Control” — Coinbase Commerce is entirely peer-to-peer, with no intermediary, as the merchant accepting crypto is always in control of their assets. Additionally, businesses are not subject to chargebacks, as crypto payments are irreversible.
- “Secure And Trusted” — Throughout Coinbase’s six-year history, it has held the coveted position of one of the most, if not the most secure cryptocurrency platform in this industry. Additionally, the platform built up a network of trust that spans millions of individuals.
According to a recent tweet from Kevin Rooke, a proponent of cryptocurrency and decentralized technologies, 2,7 million online outlets can now accept Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH) with Coinbase Commerce integrations.
“Entirely peer-to-peer too, no middlemen involved. Just the way internet payments should be”, – wrote Kevin Rooke.
