The Hong Kong-based wedding gift company, Wedding Gifts Hong Kong, announced today that they have started to accept the Bitcoin as a payment method, following in the footsteps of many major companies such as Overstock, Dell and Dish.
The company ships their stock to all corners of the globe as it is today and they wanted to find a global currency that would make payments easier for their customers, which is why they chose to integrate Bitcoin payments. The fact that it is completely anonymous, has no exchange rate fee as well as no payments fee made the Bitcoin the ideal way of paying for them.
“We are so pleased to be able to offer this to our customers. Now a customer in the U.S. or the U.K. will be able to make a purchase with us at the same price without any hassle of exchange rates,” said Leslie Wu, owner of Wedding Gifts Hong Kong.
The company primarily sells fortune cookies, wedding supplies, gifts and everything else that goes into a wedding and with the new integration of Bitcoin they not only give free shipping to everyone in Hong Kong, they also let the customer donate 10% of their purchase to a charity of their choice.
“The charity was added to give something back, particularly with our international customers,” said Wu.
International customers will not have free shipping, but will be able to pay safe and secure through Bitcoin.
