US – Sheetz announced today that they will take payments to the next level and accept digital currency like bitcoin, ether, litecoin, dogecoin, and more.
The company will enable digital currency payments via Flexa a digital payment network. With the currency customers will be able to pay for items inside the store or fill up their cars, trucks, and RVs at the pump.
“Above all else, our mission at Sheetz is to continue providing our customers with the ultimate one-stop-shop where they can refuel their car and refresh their body. As a result, we are constantly innovating and exploring new offerings to truly give our customers what they want, when they want it, 24/7/365 — that includes accepting many forms of payment. We’re very excited to be working with Flexa to roll out support for cryptocurrencies and other types of digital assets at our stores,” said Linda Smith, Payments Manager for Sheetz.”
Sheetz says it will start accepting payments by mid summer on the digital monies.
“With interest in digital currencies reaching all-time highs, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that there are real, tangible benefits for the merchants who accept them—not only reduced fraud and cost savings, but also a better and more mobile customer experience,” said Trevor Filter, co-founder of Flexa. “Sheetz is one of the most forward-thinking brands in the business and understands their customer base better than anyone else. We’re absolutely elated that Flexa can help them become the first convenience and retail chain to accept digital currencies directly at the pump.”
