Shopping with Crypto: More Than 240 Locations in Slovenia Accept Payment Via New App

The team behind a mobile application enabling shoppers to pay with crypto at online and brick-and-mortar stores has unveiled new features and a redesign — enabling consumers to shop as post-New Year sales are in full swing.

Eligma, a startup dedicated to smart commerce and blockchain advocacy, says the latest version of its Elipay app has been built with simplicity in mind. As well as offering immediate payments with selected cryptocurrencies, free transfers between users worldwide, balance and transaction history, and loyalty rewards, the app also now enables enhanced store navigation and discovery.

More than 240 locations now accept Elipay as a payment method, and the app update has sought to make it easier for shoppers to find new places where they can spend their crypto. Users can search for stores and service providers in their vicinity, or browse outlets by category. Moreover, Elipay created a feature which they can save their favorite venues — meaning contact details and opening hours — are never more than a click away.

The app is currently available on Google Play and the App Store. Since its launch, it has enabled users to make payments using Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and the specially created ELI token — as well as transfer funds to other Elipay users worldwide. There is also a referral program, offering users rewards in Bitcoin for recommending Elipay to friends.
