Yacuna Group releases instant payment using SOFORT Banking and iDeal Payment in seven European countries
London, December 2, 2014 – The UK-based Bitcoin exchange Yacuna.com introduces fast and secure instant payments. Yacuna’s customers are now able to trade Bitcoins, Dogecoins and Litecoins on an even simpler method using their classic online banking data.
The instant deposits at Yacuna.com are supported in seven European countries. In order to provide its customers with instant payment, the Yacuna Group integrates the two service providers SOFORT Banking and iDEAL Payment.
“Digital money can be transfered within a few seconds between customers. However, most of them have to resort to traditional currencies to make their initial investment in Bitcoins, Dogecoins and Litecoins,” said Andrei Martchouk, CEO of the Yacuna Group.
“The classic SEPA transfers usually take some extra time, but financial transactions should not last an eternity in the digital age. By accelerating the Euro depositing at Yacuna.com with instant payments, we give our customers to innovative financial instruments while significantly advancing in contrast to our competitors. Our goal is to provide digitally added value for our customers,” he added.
iDEAL, the 2nd payment method which Yacuna Group integrated, makes it possible for consumers to make direct online payments in the Netherlands via the online payment systems of the largest Dutch banks. iDEAL payments have won major ground in the online payment sector in recent years thanks to real-time confirmation of payment and other features.
There are now over 13,000 webshops in the Netherlands, which offer iDEAL as a method of payment. In 2013, 62% of the consumers purchasing products and services online preferred paying via iDEAL. The primary reason consumers cited for choosing iDEAL was that it is fast, easy and safe.
The launch of the instant payment at Yacuna.com is an important step for the company’s international expansion in seven European markets including Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Poland and Switzerland.
Customers in these countries will receive even more comfort and transparency while depositing Euro at Yacuna in order to trade the fiat currency into Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Litecoin. The Yacuna Group plans to provide instant payment in other leading international currencies such as British Pound Sterling (GBP) in the near future.
Yacuna.com is an international trading platform for digital currencies. Registered users can easily conduct their financial transactions in Bitcoins, Litecoins and Dogecoins at yacuna.com. All crypto currencies can be seamlessly exchanged to conventional currencies (EUR and GBP).
In order to comply the regulatory standards, Yacuna cooperates with PayCo Financial Services Ltd. as Yacuna´s payment processing partner to safeguard and secure all customer funds held in conventional currencies.
