Fancy a long invigorating soak?
Handmade ethical cosmetics retailer Lush has recently started accepting Bitcoin as a method of payment for online shoppers.
The retailer operates around 1,000 physical stores across 49 countries worldwide and has suggested its online adoption will likely influence its in store Bitcoin rollout.
Lush said in a statement that Bitcoin was introduced as part of their “wider strategy to delve into the Blockchain community and provide an ethical viewpoint on its possibilities”.
The firm claims that it would allow them to create more ways of working with a wider range of suppliers, some of whom are from developing countries. Providing an alternative method in these regions will open up new new markets and make transactions more transparent with little to no exchange rates or fees.
The Bitpay ecommerce solution has been utilised and will allow the platform to handle customers who wish to pay with Bitcoin.
Lush is headquartered in Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom. The company was founded by Mark Constantine, a trichologist and Liz Weir.
Lush is expected to make $1 billion in global sales by 2017.
