Bitcoins for E-Commerce in Canada

Ever wondered if you should integrate Bitcoins onto your site? Well, while Starlit Citadel isn’t the largest site around, we do have a significant presence.  Here’s a quick pie chart comparing the number of orders we received using Bitcoin as a payment method compared to our other payment methods.

Pie chart of bitcoin sales vs other payment methods

Bitcoin sales for half of 2014 compared to other payment methods

This pie chart consists of our sales from Q1 to Q2 2014 on Starlit Citadel.    We have Bitcoins on Fortress Geek too, but since SC is much larger, we figured it would be a better chart.  There’s not a significant difference between the two.

I don’t have to say much – Bitcoin’s a nice idea, but right now; at least in Canada, the uptake has not reached a point where it’s a significant payment method.  It might be different in the US where the population numbers are much higher as usual, but in Canada it’s probably not worth the time (unless you have nothing better to do).
