Do you have an online store and are considering accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option? If so, you're certainly not alone. Cryptocurrency payments have become increasingly popular in the e-commerce space, offering customers an easy and secure way to buy products without relying on traditional banking institutions.
However, one of the challenges of setting up cryptocurrency payments is determining how much to sell your products for. After all, you don't want to leave money on the table by pricing your items too low or risk scaring away customers with higher than expected prices.
Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to make sure that you’re charging the right price for products purchased using cryptocurrency. Here's what you need to know:
One of the best ways to determine how much to charge for your product when selling it in exchange for cryptocurrency is to look at how much similar products are selling for both with traditional payment methods and with cryptocurrency. This will give you an understanding of what people are willing to pay for certain items and help ensure that your pricing is competitive.
Depending on which types of cryptocurrency you’ll be accepting, you may also need to factor in any additional costs or fees associated with processing such payments including exchange rate fluctuations and transaction fees. It’s important that these are taken into account so that your pricing is fair and accurate for customers who choose to purchase using crypto. With the Rally checkout, we offer the Coinbase Commerce extension. Coinbase charges a flat 1% fee for all of their transactions. If you’re new to crypto, we suggest starting with an integration such as this to get a good understanding of how crypto will work across your store and customers.
Once you’ve got some initial ideas about what prices could work, it may be worth experimenting with different prices to see which ones are most successful with customers who use cryptocurrencies versus those who opt for more ‘traditional’ forms of payment. Tracking analytics such as clickthrough rates and conversion rates can help you get a better understanding of which price points offer the best results overall so that your pricing is optimized across all payment types used at your store.
By following these tips, you'll be able to set appropriate prices when selling products through your online shop in exchange for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin—ensuring both customer satisfaction and profitability along the way!
