Whatever your opinions on cryptocurrency - whether you've been an avid investor from the start or a sceptic - the fact remains that digital assets are becoming a more important part of the payments world. This has never become more apparent than in the recent surge in the cryptocurrency market, with the likes of Bitcoin reaching over $50,000 US dollars in value.
Hence, Watches of Wales are proud to announce that we have partnered with Utrust to pilot their first cryptocurrency payment solution for the Shopify platform. Starting today, this means that Watches of Wales will accept a plethora of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and USDT as an official payment method for our stock of the world's most exclusive watch brands.
This new way of payment is encapsulated by one simple philosophy: It's about choice. At Watches of Wales, we want to move with the time and enrich shoppers from all around the world who are already flocking to digital currencies with different options to deposit their digital stock. Through our integration, we want to help these concepts flourish and reach their potential.
Our new payment method is simple to use. Simply check out as you would with any store, select 'Utrust' as your payment method, and place your order. Within minutes, a payment link will be sent to your email address where you can select to pay with the cryptocurrency of your choice. Exchange rates are locked for every 15 minutes, ensuring you pay the right price for your watch of choice. The payment link will expire after 2.5h if you choose to not proceed with the purchase.
Watch our walkthrough below to see how it works.
