We love cryptocurrency. We were proud to offer it exclusively here at Pinebot but sometimes reality sinks in and you have to do what makes the most sense. Perhaps someday crypto will be ubiquitous enough that it’s all a vendor needs. We’re clearly not there yet. What drove this realization home was that pinebot.com has seen a massive influx of traffic. In monitoring the path people took on the site as they realized we only accepted crypto, I knew we had a problem. Thus, from today onward, Pinebot accepts PayPal, credit & debit card payments, currently via PayPal.
As a result, all prices have been converted to USD which can now be seen throughout the site. We will continue to support our cryptocurrency payments option alongside USD. Our Botmaster vendors don’t need to make any changes and our customers can, if they wish, switch to PayPal at the start of their next billing cycles or upon their next purchase.
We believe this is the best way forward for the growth of Pinebot and are happy for the addition; always moving forward.
