We at Blockonomics love working with small businesses to build payment solutions for their livelihoods. An Artist wanted to run an ecommerce shop to sell prints of their original artwork, but with customers around the world they ran into problems with setting up a robust payment platform that didn’t have too many fees. Customers wanted access to a good payment processor that could handle the high payments being conducted for the art. Instead, the artist was loosing money using more conventional payment platforms. After using the Blockonomics Bitcoin Payment Processor, they were able have an easy checkout system that worked with Wix, their ecommerce platform, to allow sales to be conducted in Bitcoin.
The Artist paints their own prints, and sells them to buyers around the world. Their artwork ranges from more conventional pieces, but they also paint works of art inspired by Bitcoin. They are also a digital nomad, so often need to change currencies when they move to a new location.
The Artist had a growing customer base from around the world, who were wanting to purchase their paintings at a premium. However, this resulted in higher fees and currency conversion rates when using conventional payment processors. Their profits were going down. Additionally, customers purchasing some Bitcoin artworks felt they were being let down by not having the opportunity to pay in Bitcoin for the art work. Additionally, both the customers and the Artist wanted privacy and security when using a payment processor. And because the Artist was not as tech savvy, they needed something that could link with their Wix shop and be easy to install and run.
