Thursday 9 March 2023 13:17 CET | News

Blockchain-based B2B travel selling platform Xeni has partnered with Bitcoin payments company BitPay to enable crypto payments in the travel segment.


Through this partnership, Xeni’s customers will be able to accept crypto payments for commercial flights, hotels, car rentals, and other activities around the world. Xeni offers a no-code subscription service that will now allow travel discount membership clubs, social media influencers, and travel agents to accept crypto payments for travel with no price volatility or risk. Therefore, they won’t have to worry about chargebacks, fraud, and high credit card transaction fees. 

Any traveller that decides to make a purchase on a Xeni-powered site will be able to choose at checkout whether to pay using traditional methods or via cryptocurrency. If they choose crypto, users can pay using 15 different tokens such as ApeCoin (APE), Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and XRP (in certain countries). BitPay also supports 5 USD-pegged stablecoins, namely BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDP, and USDC, as well as one Euro-backed stablecoin named EUROC.  

BitPay’s app, card, and browser extension are compatible with wallets such as Coinbase, Blockchain, Kraken, BRD, and Metamask.
