I like the idea of accepting bitcoin and other coin, but i would need it be quick. Anybody know what the options are?
There are a lot of options for accepting crypto-currencies, but as far as I know they are all kits that your developers would need to integrate. Which one would be best depends on several things including what software your website is developed with and what your acceptance preferences are.
has been around forever. I used them years ago and they worked almost perfectly for me until they asked for stuff like my business tax ID. They allow you to specify how much (by percentage) you want to keep in crypto, and how much you want to be converted automatically into dollars in your bank account. They also have a debit card that you can load using a few crypto-currencies. Highly recommended.
When I started with BitPay they didn't have a plugin for the software my site used. I asked them to make one and in a week it was done.
I also recommend ShapeShift
. They have a plugin for websites that allows you to accept almost any crypto-currency and have it automatically converted into your choice. If you like bitcoin, you can have Dash, Ethereum, Monero, etc all converted easily. I think it's still a 1% fee for conversion. There is a competitor that charges 1/2%, but isn't as well known or big. Also, I know the owner of ShapeShift personally and he's a good guy. ShapeShift doesn't require accounts or anything to use, although it might require one for the website plugin to access their API.
