CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 12, 2022–
Strike, the world’s first digital payments platform based on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network, today announced its integration with Shopify, allowing eligible US Shopify merchants to receive bitcoin payments from customers around the world in US dollars. .
“We’re proud to partner with Shopify to provide merchants with a cheaper, faster way to accept US dollars using Bitcoin technology,” said Jack Mallers, Founder and CEO of Strike. He continued, “The Lightning Network is a global payments network that lowers costs, improves speed, drives innovation, improves financial inclusion, and empowers consumers and merchants to choose.
The Shopify Merchant Integration, designed with ease of use in mind, makes it easy for merchants to accept bitcoin dollar payments.
With the Strike integration, Shopify merchants can accept payments worldwide and save on processing fees, with final settlement in cash.

The Strike integration provides an alternative experience to traditional card networks by leveraging the underlying technology of the Bitcoin Lightning Network to enable instant, global, and final cash payments while eliminating legacy processing fees like interchange. The Strike integration is available to any consumer worldwide with a Bitcoin Lightning Network-enabled wallet, including over 70 million CashApp users.
