Supermarket chain Croatiam Konzum said it will start accepting cryptocurrency payments in its online store as an additional payment method.

“The process of paying with cryptocurrency is straightforward and similar to card payments,” the company said on its website.

Konzum accepts payments with nine cryptocurrencies: bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), bitcoin cash (BCH), EOS, DAI, ripple (XRP), stellar lumen (XLM), tether (USDT) and USDC. They will be accepted as a means of payment for more than 12,000 products offered.

The new payment option was introduced in cooperation with Croatian fintech company Electrocoin and its PayCek system, the first Croatian cryptocurrency payment processor.

Upon completion of the transaction, customers will receive email confirmations from the PayCek system and the invoice for the paid service or product will be sent by Konzum.

Due to the volatility of the cryptocurrency’s exchange rate, which can vary from minute to minute, Konzum noted that the PayCek system guarantees the buyer an equivalent fixed exchange rate when making a purchase. .

Konzum is part of the Fortenova group, successor to the collapsed company Agrokor.
