, a royalty-free art website that provides PDF vector illustrations, is now accepting payments in bitcoins.
“Our company was among the first to accept PayPal when they were a startup,” said Brad Gosse, owner and founder of Yourbrain Media Inc., which owns VectorToons.com. “Bitcoin is a secure, legitimate currency being used in high volumes online. Since many of our customers are early adopters, we need to be as well.”
The company is enabling Bitcoin payments through BitPay's payment processing system. The system lets customers calculate the current US dollar-to-Bitcoin exchange rate, than provides a Bitcoin payment address upon checkout.
“If you already have a Bitcoin wallet, it's extremely easy,” said Gosse.
In addition to Bitcoin and PayPal, VectorToons.com also accepts payments via credit cards.
The royalty-free artworks on VectorToons.com can be purchased as PDF downloads. The illustrations are used for websites, videos, print ads, sales letters and other purposes.
