The American company building inventory based on the needs and requirements of customers H&M Distributors, Inc has announced to accept cryptocurrency payments. The main purpose is to provide customers with unprecedented access to a wide range of products of H&M Distributors, transactions speed, low transactions costs, negligible currency conversion fees and freedom from chargebacks.

Customers can use cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC), Dash, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Zcoin (XZC).
The founder & CEO Herb Needham of H&M Distributors said, “After more than 20 years in the business, we consider ourselves experts in specialty lighting. Accepting cryptocurrency payments allows us to share that expertise with even more clients by removing many of the barriers that made it difficult to sell internationally before. What sold us was the settlement system, which allows us to convert crypto payments to a USD equivalent right away,” PR Newswire reported.
Rakuten Edy is a prepaid card service which facilitates payments with QR code scanning implementation. The service will be integrated into the new app of Rakuten which shows QR code payments support, Ethereum World News reported.
