Do It Yourself (for free) with Electrum
The Electrum client offers merchants a POS view for receiving bitcoins directly without needing a payment processor. It is a bare bones system at the moment, but it is extremely secure for a merchant as the private keys used to spend your receipts can be stored off-site, is under active development with new features just around the corner, and it is the future of how bitcoin point of sale systems will work.
- 200% free – free to install, free to receive payments.
- Private keys stored offline, offsite. Very secure.
- Currently no exchange rate information, but planned and available soon.
- Separate payment window for customer facing display.
- Instant notification of receipts and confirmation count.
- Use local exchangers to convert to dollars.
Electrum Wallet On Mobile Devices
Once you have your electrum wallet set up and working at your checkout counter, enable the very same wallet on any mobile device, company owned, or employees, by linking your electrum wallet public keys at AcceptBit.com. All bitcoins received by any device is securely delivered to your off-line electrum wallet.
