Email and SMS Billing for Digital Currency Payments

Ecommerce payment solution GoCoin (, which focuses on bitcoin and emerging alt-coins, has released a "Click-to-Bill" feature that aims to simply how merchants accept digital currency payments from customers.

Using the system, merchants are able to creat invoices and request payment via email or text message directly from the GoCoin dashboard. When a customer receives an SMS alert and clicks the link that is included, their bitcoin wallet is launched and they are prompted to select their preferred currency and submit the payment

"Consumers are getting more accustomed to alternative forms of payment, and with SMS billing we're helping merchants replicate the online experience with in-store commerce and account top-ups," said Steve Beauregard, co-founder and CEO of GoCoin.

GoCoin offers several plugins for popular ecommerce shopping carts, expanding support for solutions including WooCommerce, Magento, Prestashop, VirtueMart, ZenCart, OpenCart, OSCommerce, and UberCart.
