Bitcoin for Merchants

It's about time for another meetup focussed on bitcoin for merchants.

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 Clothing) will share his experience with the specifics of setting up Hemp and Company Clothing 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!

I hope to keep the actual merchant-related talk to about an hour, then migrate to a pub or restaurant for further discussions.

    Now there is a Bitcoin ATM located at Hemp and Co making it way easier for the average person to acquire Bitcoin! A few of us from BitBrokers will be at the meeting to discuss.
