APMEX said on Dec. 8 that it would begin to accept the cryptocurrency through an integration with payment processor BitPay. It’s also offering a small discount on purchases made with bitcoin in order to drum up interest in the new feature.
The company said in a statement:
“For more than 15 years, APMEX has been an industry leader and along the way has adapted to the growing needs of our customer base. As bitcoin becomes more popular and widely accepted as payment, we are thrilled to welcome the use of this cryptocurrency for buying gold, silver and other precious metals by integrating BitPay into our website.”
