Mastering the Lock has always believed in trying to make things as easy as possible for our customers. Whether that’s by creating easy to use parts catalogues or making the purchase of parts as seamless as possible.
If you are a repeat customer, you may have noticed some changes to our payment gateway this year. As part of these improvements we have also made and effort to improve the experience for our international customers by allowing for BitCoin payments.
Credit card transactions can sometimes be far from seamless when purchasing something from another country. Likewise, bank transfers can be costly through bank fees and also very slow to confirm – which can be a real pain, when you need your tools fast!
BitCoin avoids these issues, by being fast, secure and practically free to use. It’s a new type of currency built for worldwide use and the digital age.
Major banks are obviously worried about it, and should be – they’ve been making good very money off the backs of customers and merchants for years! It’s estimated that BitCoin has the potential (if widely adopted) to remove 200bn US Dollars in bank revenue from the worldwide financial system a year!
We are embracing this new way of working and think our customers should too, because of the benefits it brings.
