Using Bitcoin in the real world is an important experience. Rather than just HODL it, we recommend spending some of it to get a feel of how seamless and easy the future of money really is to use. To help you do this, we have started an ongoing series where we profile New Zealand businesses accepting Bitcoin and other crypto.
The first shop we are profiling is Animal Kingdoms a great online shop selling animal and fantasy figures. It may be just the place to spend your BTC and get some pressies for any youngsters you know!
We spoke with Sue, the director of Animal Kindgoms about her shop and why she chose to accept Bitcoin.
Can you tell us a little bit about your shop - what do you sell?
Animal Kingdoms is a family-run niche toy story which specialising in high quality, long life, and accurate Animal and Fantasy figures. We stock some of the world's most well-known brands including Schleich, CollectA, Papo and licensed Disney figures.
These toys are hugely popular across the world, with thousands of different breeds and species and we are proud to have the largest selection in New Zealand.
When did you get interested in cryptocurrency?
We saw a use for accepting cryptocurrency about six months into running the business, in particular with our international customer base.
Why did you decide to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment?
As we started to get enquiries from international customers, in particular, we saw a real opportunity to support a growing form of currency.
It is faster, more secure, and we minimise the risk of fraudulent chargebacks and disputes. Another benefit is the small fees compared with PayPal or international transfers.
