MyCryptoCheckout is a non-custodial cryptocurrency payment gateway and API, dedicated to increasing digital currency commerce around the globe.

The two companies are teaming up to develop a point of sale pilot program tailored for franchise locations to accept digital currencies as frictionless as they accept other payment methods. The program will include cryptocurrency to fiat autosettlement, which enables merchants to instantly convert any received digital currencies. Merchants can then bypass one of the biggest hurdles to accepting cryptocurrencies: volatility.

“With all the innovation going on around digital currencies, their footprint in the payment market continues to grow each year. We look forward to enabling them as an optional payment method for customers. Being able to accept digital currencies, paired with autosettlement opens up alot of possibilities. For many merchants like us, autosettlement plays a big part in mitigating the risk of accepting a currency that could change in value in relatively short time.” – Donald MacDonald, CEO, Rooter-Man
