Bitcoin takes off with an exciting partnership between CoinCorner and Hill Helicopters, which sees the private helicopter company accepting Bitcoin for its luxury plane.
Bitcoin is growing rapidly as a payment method, made possible by Bitcoin payment gateway services like CoinCorner Checkout and forward-thinking companies keen to gain a competitive advantage. Offering a global customer base, lower fees than traditional payment services, and no chargebacks or fraud, Bitcoin is a payment option that many companies are considering.
Jason Hill, Founder and CEO of Hill Helicopters, said: “In what was a first for Hill Helicopters, we have just accepted payment in Bitcoin from a customer for the HX50 helicopter, and several more will follow. This has been processed through CoinCorner and represents an exciting new dimension to placing an order for this superb luxury aircraft, which will be particularly suitable for owners of private pilots. “
Ben Collins, Business Development Director at CoinCorner, added: “We are really excited to announce this unique partnership; it has been a pleasure working with Hill Helicopters to help grow the adoption of Bitcoin in the aviation industry.
“We are seeing an increase in consumer demand to pay for high value vehicles with Bitcoin. Two of our Checkout partners, Rex Motor Company and SkillanNaylor Car Company, have sold a number of cars for Bitcoin, with an average price of £ 40,000 per vehicle.
CoinCorner Checkout is available for businesses in the Isle of Man, the UK, and most countries in Europe.
