Battle Creek, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/07/2014 -- Falbe Publishing of Battle Creek, Michigan integrated its online shopping cart with Bitcoin as of July 5th. The items sold directly from http://www.falbepublishing.com can now be purchased with the cryptocurrency Bitcoins.
Falbe Publishing and its fantasy fiction imprint Brave Luck Books offer ebooks, stock art, and audiobooks worldwide. Select paperbacks are also available at the website for Bitcoins, but some other titles are sold by linking to third party printers that have their own payment systems.
The owner of the company Tracy Falbe decided to add the Bitcoin option because she’s always tried to make her web store shoppable with multiple currencies.
“Bitcoin is a form of money. So why not accept it?” Falbe reasoned.
She noticed back in May at the blog of her shopping cart and download provider SendOwl that Bitcoin had been added as an option.
“I looked over the information about including Bitcoin as a payment option, and it looked easy to do. I put it on my to-do list and finally got to it over the Fourth of July weekend,” Falbe said.
She had been following Bitcoin in the news for several months and was fascinated by the concept.
“Money is a psychological construct whether its sea shells, paper, silver, or digital information. Bitcoin has value and some people like to use it. Now I’m on board too,” Falbe said.
According to Bitcoin.org the cryptocurrency is “cash for the internet.” It has no central authority and functions as a peer-to-peer exchange of value. Without any institutions acting as middlemen, the transaction fees associated with Bitcoin are lower. The system is based on open source protocols and software that are public.
People who like to use Bitcoin when shopping online now have the following products from Falbe Publishing available to them:
Fantasy books, ebooks, and audiobooks
The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats
Bear Dog Dog Bear
My Grandma’s Vintage Recipes
