Financial management specialist Intuit is expanding its PayByCoin product to Australia.

Introduced in June, PayByCoin integrates bitcoin into the company’s Intuit QuickBooks service, enabling its small business merchant network to accept bitcoin.

Intuit indicated that the bitcoin service had performed better than expected in terms of enrolment, leading them to expand the program.

, PayByCoin was supported through an integration with payment processor Coinbase, though the latest update indicates it is now using BitPay’s platform API.

PayByCoin is a product of Intuit Labs, a unit of the business that allows small teams to work on private projects with the goal of spurring new innovations.
