San Francisco-based iPad point-of-sale solution provider Revel Systems announced that its merchant customers can now accept bitcoins as payment. Merchants can elect to receive bitcoin via any of Revel‘s more than 7,000 terminals, which are in use at a variety of merchants from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen to Goodwill thrift stores. Founded in 2010, Revel Systems offers a range of POS solutions for quick-service restaurants, self-service kiosks, grocery stores and retail outlets, among other merchants.
Hey do you like Bitcoins? Yeah. I thought you might. Well you can use all those coins to buy things at stores running Revel Systems-powered point-of-sale terminals starting right now, as the company has rolled out native support for transactions made using the very much in-vogue cryptocurrency. Previously, Revel customers could accept Bitcoin transactions using third-party plugins, but now it’s integrated as an optional payment method directly into the platform alongside LevelUp, PayPal, cash and credit. The reason behind the integration is to provide its users with access to all the latest payment methods, according to Revel co-founders Lisa Falzone and Chris Ciabarra, and Bitcoin has been a request from a decent number of its clients.
