CheapAir to Switch Bitcoin Payment Processor

Popular travel booking website leaves Coinbase for Bitpay
23 April 2018   317

CheapAir began Bitcoin acceptation back in 2013. It was a first global travel industry player to accept cryptocurrency.

We were recently informed by our processing partner, Coinbase, that they will no longer support 'custodial' solutions for merchants, and are removing a number of the tools and features that we rely on to accept bitcoin from CheapAir.com shoppers. These changes are scheduled to occur in a matter of weeks.

As company says, covertation of crypto to fiat is a key to companies ability to accept crypto.  Traditional airlines and hotel services accept only fiat currencies as payment.

It is also noted that it will accept other cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin Cash, Dash and Litecoin as potentiotial options.

Our one giant concern is that Bitpay does not support 'non-payment protocol wallets' (wallets that aren't BIP-70 compliant). So if you do not have a compatible wallet, you would have to get one and use it as an intermediate stage for your Bitcoin payment.

However, while CheapAir said the integration with Bitpay has already completed, it foresees the adoption may not be smooth.
