Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other crypto-currencies will soon be available as a payment option on South Korea's largest e-commerce platform WeMakePrice (Wemepu), CCN reports.
Integration of the cryptocurrency into OneThePay payment system, which WeMakePrice uses, will be implemented with the support of the leading exchange of the country Bithumb. Users will use the existing application without creating an additional account on Bithumb.
In an interview to HanKyoReh, the representative of WeMakePrice said that the decision to integrate crypto-currency became part of a broader initiative aimed at facilitating the process of paying customers for purchases.
Integrating cryptocurrencies is a part of our initiative to make payments more convenient for our consumers and clients. We consider mobile fintech apps, points, and cryptocurrencies as efficient payment methods.
It is also noted that this is the first time that the leading online retailer of South Korea will offer crypto-currencies as one of the main payment methods. It is expected that this solution WeMakePrice will contribute to the further popularization of the country's cryptocurrency.
