Just wanted to let everyone know that http://babbletees.com now accepts BTC as a checkout/payment option.

They sell a variety of t-shirts that are driven by science/academic inspirations. I urged them to do this, so please provide support and help to prove bitcoin as a viable currency!

They are doing so on USD conversion rate for the day of purchase.

For those that are interested, the most intriguing part was the fact that the fees are low in comparison to Paypal and Credit Card Processing. They currently spend nearly $15k a year for those fees - so obviously this project was of interest to them.

now accepts BTC as a checkout/payment option.

I went through the process, just to evaluate it.

I couldn't see how to pay as checkout part 1/2 said Google Checkout.  But then after submitting that I see part 2/2 which lets you choose Bitcoin as the payment method.

In response is:

==========================================
Your Order ID is: #nnnn

Instructions for Bitcoins (Btc)

Thanks for using the new way to pay on the Internet! We will be emailing you with the final total/payment address of your order in BTC based on the current USD exchange rate.

If you have any questions, simply contact us via email at babbletees@gmail.com, or phone at 815-780-1953.

Thanks for using Bitcoins!

An email receipt containing information about your order will soon follow. Please keep it for your records.

Thank you for shopping at Babbletees.

==========================================

Eventually we'll start seeing ecommerce sites able to build in the bitcoin payment handling, but even this method works for now.  Thanks for adding bitcoin as one of the methods!

Agreed - this part is huge. I am happy to see even more carts supported https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Category:Shopping_Cart_Interfaces over time - the big win will be as soon as a major provider (like Google Checkout) comes out with built in BTC integration.

At this point, I think as long as all the major ecommerce platforms supported BTC then adoption would be fairly quick. I don't know of a single merchant that doesn't hate their card processor - but it's pretty much a monopoly between the credit card companies/paypal right now.

One thing I didn't think of is that even if some of the ecommerce hosting players start supporting BTC - adoption rates would be huge as support would be builtin - bitconmoney gets right to the point with their twitter posting (Babbletees is hosted on Shopify):

bitcoinmoney : @Shopify Are you adding support for payment via Bitcoin soon? Your customers aren't waiting around for that to happen: http://j.mp/kjbhnL

Kudos to that!

I just got an email from the shop owner stating that they have had two BTC transactions on the site already!

This has certainly gotten their attention/interest in Bitcoins. I also pasted them the link to the twitter comment about Shopify supporting BTC, so they ended up opening a ticket with them (Shopify) requesting BTC as a payment option!

If there are any other customers on Shopify that lurk this board - I would encourage you to do the same.

This is exactly the kind of thing we need to avoid BTC being considered "Fringe Drug Purchase/Money Laundering/Speculator" currency. Our media is sick and tends to focus on these stories so it will take 1000 good stories to counter every bad one.
