Centri and BitPay Partner to Enable Cryptocurrency Payment Acceptance for Clients
Philadelphia, PA – June 29th, 2022 – Centri Business Consulting, LLC, a leading financial, accounting, and advisory consulting services firm, and BitPay, the world’s largest provider of bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services, have announced a partnership that will allow Centri’s clients and vendors to pay invoices with cryptocurrency. This new payment solution will enable Centri to promote crypto acceptance to its customer base, especially those who are crypto natives.
The solution is easy for clients to utilize. Centri will be able to accept crypto payments directly from clients and vendors through its account with BitPay and receive fiat payments the next business day. Payments will be made seamlessly from approved crypto wallets. With over 100 million crypto wallets in use globally, consumers will enjoy this straightforward, one-step transactional model using their preferred native wallet to make a direct payment with their cryptocurrency. The solution supports major wallets like Coinbase Wallet, Gemini Wallet, Metamask, Binance, Exodus, and more to make payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Litecoin (LTC), XRP, Shiba Inu (SHIB), and five USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, PAX, DAI, and BUSD).
“By accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option for our clients via BitPay, Centri is reaffirming its commitment and belief in the cryptocurrency markets,” says Mike Andrusko, Centri’s Digital Assets Practice Leader. “We want to easily and securely accept these payments and allow businesses to spend their crypto.”
“At BitPay, we see crypto as the future of payments, and businesses like Centri are being rewarded with new business opportunities from those who want to pay in crypto,” says Merrick Theobald, VP of Marketing at BitPay. “Centri is supporting those clients who prefer to pay in crypto with a payment solution that eliminates transaction fraud, reduces the cost of payment processing, and removes cross-border transaction headaches.”
Centri’s finance team will work with clients to confirm details of cryptocurrency payments and provide the necessary information to accurately create an account. Once crypto funds have been verified, Centri will receive an approval message and payment will be settled.
