WebMoney enables payments in Bitcoin

All buyers, even non-members of the WebMoney system can now pay with Bitcoin (BTC) for products and services sold by WebMoney authorised shops.

Bitcoin payments will be received onto the seller`s account in WMX – the type of WebMoney Transfer title units. This payment approach aligns with the requirements for legitimate transactions using Bitcoin.

Let us recall that previously the system introduced a new type of purses – X-purse with WMX digital title units, which are the transferred for keeping rights for publishing of records in the publicly available database bitcoin.org.

To start accepting payments in bitcoin a seller registered in the WebMoney system has to set X-purse on the Merchant WebMoney service. WMX paid onto a seller`s account in the following exchange rate: 0.001 BTC to 1 WMX after receiving of a minimum of six transaction confirmations in bitcoin. The seller may choose to distribute the purchased product to the buyer at their own discretion at any stage prior to receiving all transaction confirmations.

WMX can be exchanged for other title units like WMZ, WMR or to bitcoins.

One of the first to accept payments in Bitcoin are sellers whose online stores are created on the Digiseller platform. These online stores include the trading platform with an instant purchase delivery Plati.com used by around 60 thousand traders worldwide.

The new version of WebMoney Keeper WinPro 3.9.9.7

WebMoney has released a new version of Keeper WinPro 3.9.9.7 with added new features and an improved communication interface.

It is now a lot easier to find the required contact by their avatars uploaded in the Contacts menu of the WebMoney Events business network. The BL of your contacts within the system are now displayed in the list and can be distinguished by different colours depending on the creditworthiness of the user as follows: a creditworthiness below 1000 WMZ is marked with red, orange is used when the creditworthiness of the user is below 10 000 WMZ, green – below 100 000 WMZ and blue when the creditworthiness is above 10 000 WMZ respectively. For easy operation within the system for users from Belarus, we have taken into account all issues arising from the denomination of WMB.

Users of the Windows 7 version and above won’t need to switch between the chat windows while communicating with a few different users simultaneously because WebMoney Keeper WinPro 3.9.9.7 supports multiple chat tabs in the same window. You can use the combinations of fast keys: `ctrl+tab` (forward) and `ctrl+shift+tab`(back) to navigate in between chat tabs within the same window. In the case of tabs not fitting within the window, you can scroll through the tabs with a mouse.

In addition, it is now even easier to use the WebMoney Video service, because missed calls are now listed in the incoming calls under a separate icon.
