Even though we are 10 years into the creation of a cryptocurrency market, there is still a lack of information for the general user of digital currencies. Cryptocurrency as a method of payment is still not as common as traditional cash/debit/credit cards used by the average person, and since more cryptocurrency holders choose to trade and speculate, this has hindered adoption from lack of spending. This creates a situation where it’s difficult to find companies that will accept cryptocurrency as payment and with so many holders of cryptocurrency, it would be ideal to have all the businesses accepting crypto payments in one handy spot.
Online Crypto Store Directory
CoinPayments is happy announce our partnership with CryptWerk a crypto store directory to find out where to spend bitcoin and altcoins. As a cryptocurrency payment solution, CoinPayments believes that spending cryptocurrency is vital to increasing user adoption and we wish to create this bridge between merchants and consumers to pave the way forward.
CoinPayments wishes to aim to support the creation of a strong and populated online database of cryptocurrency supporting merchants that spans globally. This partnership is beneficial to both sides, as CryptWerk will benefit from CoinPayment’s extensive merchant base which will be gradually listed in the store directory, and CoinPayments will be able to help increase user and merchant payment volume by having a comprehensive directory.

Benefits for Merchant
Merchants may find it difficult to advertise their acceptance of cryptocurrency payments through traditional marketing channels as the crypto market is a new space of its own. Having an online portal such as a directory with information on merchants accepting cryptocurrency payments is something that cryptocurrency holders and potential customers will naturally seek out, to find out more information about crypto-friendly stores. For merchants, an online database can be a great marketing tool for your business and will also bring some new customers to your store that may never have considered it before.
CoinPayments merchants with over 500 verified transactions will also receive a special badge on their merchant profile to help boost their reputation on the Cryptwerk store directory as a trusted merchant! The longer a merchant does business with CoinPayments, the more prestige they will get! Furthermore, all merchants can get a 20% discount on premium placements, branding, or banner ads when they use the code CPSWERK when submitting a promotional request.
Also, when you fill in your CoinPayments merchant ID, a link to your CoinPayments feedback profile will appear on your store directory profile.
