Aliant Teams with BitPay for Merchant Bitcoin Payments

Blockchain, Now Accepting | September 19, 2017 By:

Aliant Payment Systems has teamed with bitcoin payment processor BitPay to allow its merchants to accept bitcoin payments.

Aliant Payment Systems is an international merchant services company, with corporate offices in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Aliant provides credit card processing and payment processing accounts for businesses worldwide.

Earlier this year, Aliant paired with Merchant e-Solutions to expand its client roster to include accounts with higher annual processing volumes, such as e-commerce, travel, and B2B companies. With these types of businesses being more likely to get hit by credit card fraud, they are attracted by the prospect of accepting bitcoin, as doing so reduces their risk.

Aliant CEO Eric Brown said that the company is looking to the future of blockchain, bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and they are excited to bring a bitcoin solution to their clients.

“We look forward to showing merchants what bitcoin can do for online payments and what BitPay is doing for businesses transferring value globally,” said Brown.

BitPay CEO Stephen Pair said merchants accepting high-value payments online need a secure, fraud-free way to receive value, and he believe bitcoin provides that way.

“We are proud to be working with a forward-looking company like Aliant to bring this payment option to more businesses,” said Pair.
