Curious whether anyone has a/b tested a bitcoin payment method? Particularly stores with customer bases that might be more in the technology early adopter category (tech gadget stores for example).
I have a few ideas around incenting bitcoin usage. Because you may save 1% to 2% compared to credit card transaction fees, you might be able to offer that 1% or 2% back to the customer as a cash back reward. Would be interesting to possibly test something like that out.
There are a number of bitcoin extensions already out. Here is an example http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/bitpay-bitcoin-payment-method.html
I would like to share a payment module that was development to receive amounts using the Bitcoin cryptocurrency via Blockchain.info wallet for the Magento platform version 1.
The module has automatic update of exchange values for Bitcoin, transaction management, blocks, automatic billing and Bitcoin currency price display in the store.
In addition, payment addresses are generated in a unique way for each customer using the QR Code format.
The link to the module project is: https://github.com/gamuzatech/gamuza_blockchain-magento and any feeback will be very gratifying.
Any doubt I am available.
