GK Software  has partnered with Flexa, a pure digital payments network, to enable merchants using TransAction+, GK’s payment processing application, to seamlessly accept dozens of different digital currencies in a fast and completely fraud-proof way.

Digital Currencies in Demand

Today’s consumers are embracing digital currencies as a method of payment, with 57% of consumers saying they would choose where to shop based in part on whether they have the right mix of digital payment options. That’s why GK Software has joined forces with Flexa to help merchants meet this rise in demand and adapt quickly to the future of payments.

Other hospitality brands are embracing alternative payment methods.  Last month Quiznos began a testing that allows Bitcoin payments at select Denver locationsChipotle celebrated National Burrito Day with a Free Burritos and Bitcoin give awayAnd Slice targeted pizza-loving cryptocurrency fans with Bitcoin Pizza Day

Merchants already integrated on TransAction+ will be able to easily accept digital currency payments using the Flexa network. Together, the collaboration will allow merchants to:

  • Accept dozens of digital currencies, including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Dogecoin (DOGE), among many others;
  • Add in-store and online acceptance of digital currencies to their payments portfolio using existing POS hardware and software;
  • rotect their business from fraud or loss from the time of authorization;
  • Empower consumers to use digital currency payments with virtually no overhead; and
  • Receive settlement in US dollars or the digital currency of their choice.

“Digital currency is growing in popularity, which is why the most advanced retailers are offering digital payments for their shoppers,” said Todd Barstow, VP of Payments Solutions, GK Software USA. “Our unique partnership with Flexa will allow merchants using TransAction+ to easily accept cryptocurrency payments, enriching the shopping experience and driving customer loyalty as we embark on this exciting new chapter in the world of payments.”
