Last year in November, CheapAir shocked the world as they announced that they would begin accepting Bitcoin payments for their services. At the time they were amongst the very first mainstream companies to actually accept the payment method and it was look upon with scepticism from others.
10 months later the company has had sales of $1.5 million through the father of cryptocurrencies, exceeding their own expectations within the company. But this isn't enough for CheapAir, who is once again ready to be one of the first companies to go into new grounds, after making a deal with GoCoin.
The deal is quite simple – CheapAir will now be able to accept both Dogecoin and Litecoin along with Bitcoin payments for their services, providing them with access to more new markets. Along with the integration of new payment methods, the company also launched a new department to do e-support for customers using cryptocurrencies, giving them advice and answer questions.
CheapAir talked to their developers about how Bitcoin was going and it was those who asked for the company to integrate Litecoin and Dogecoin as well.
“In general I am very supportive of alternative currencies and the technology is very promising.” Like many company executive Klee is delighted with the cost savings digital currencies offer companies like CheapAir.” Jeff Klee, CEO of CheapAir said.
“Big banks have such a stranglehold on commerce with their 3% per transaction fees. They need some competition and digital currencies are best suited to provide it.” He added.
