This meetup will be geared towards merchants interested in accepting bitcoin either in their physical store or via their website. Dylan will start with an overview on different approaches for both online and in-person, then Bill Finley (owner of Hemp and Company) will share his experience with the specifics of setting up Hemp and Company to accept bitcoin.
We'll cover things like:
• Overview of bitcoin
• Benefits of accepting bitcoin (fast, low fees, no chargebacks)
• Ease of setup both in-shop and online (bitpay, Shopify)
• Avoiding bitcoin's volatility by auto-converting back to CAD
• Show the actual process of someone paying with bitcoin
It would be great to see more Victoria businesses accepting bitcoin. If you have a local business or website or know someone who might be interested, please let them know about this meetup.
